The published article about Save Your Vision Awareness month can be viewed here on CLEContactLenses.com Blog.
Today CLEContactLenses.com published a blog post that provided a list of 10 foods which can help save ones vision since it is still Save Your Vision Month. The blog post pointed out that Carrots & Apricots are rich in beta carotene, a carotenoid that the body converts to vitamin A. Research has shown that beta carotene may help with night vision -- and possibly even play a part in preventing cataracts. The blog post also mentioned that leafy greens such as kale, spinach, collards, and turnip greens along with eggs are crammed full of lutein and zeaxanthin -- two powerful antioxidants that may help protect against retinal damage and the onset of cataracts and age-related macular degeneration (AMD). Another food that was mentioned in the blog post was kidney beans. Kidney beans are a good source of zinc, a mineral that is vital to eye health. Zinc helps get vitamin A from the liver to the retina for eye-protective melanin production. The blog post also mentioned how peanuts and almonds are a good source of vitamin E, a nutrient known for protecting eyes from free-radical damage. Vitamin E may also hinder the progression of cataracts and age-related macular degeneration. Lastly the blog post mentioned fatty fish such as tuna, salmon, mackerel, anchovies and trout which are rich in DHA, a fatty acid found in the retina. Fatty fish have two types of omega-3 fatty acids -- docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) -- both of which may be important in preventing or slowing down eye diseases. A lack of omega-3s may also contribute to dry eye syndrome.
