Health food for your eyes

Everyone knows that carrots are good for your eyes but there are other options too. If you are concerned about your eye health, we've listed some foods that will help keep your eyes sparkling! Remember that if you have an existing eye condition, you should make an appointment with Davis Vision. These foods are not meant to cure eye diseases but they will help prevent them!

Eggs
The yolk is a prime source of lutein and zeaxanthin—plus zinc, which also helps reduce your macular degeneration risk

Citrus and berries
These fruits are powerhouses of vitamin C, which has been shown to reduce the risk of developing macular degeneration and cataracts.

Almonds
They're filled with vitamin E, which slows macular degeneration, research shows. One handful (an ounce) provides about half of your daily dose of E.

Fatty fish
Tuna, salmon, mackerel, anchovies and trout are rich in DHA, a fatty acid found in your retina—low levels of which have been linked to dry eye syndrome.

Leafy greens
They're packed with lutein and zeaxanthin—antioxidants that, studies show, lower the risk of developing macular degeneration and cataracts.
