Did you know eating certain foods can help you prevent conditions like cataracts, macular degeneration, and glaucoma?
To help reduce your risk for cataracts, choose foods like strawberries, bell peppers, broccoli, oranges, and cantaloupe to get a high-powered antioxidant, vitamin C!
Healthy fats are dually beneficial to eye health as they help absorb key nutrients for eye health, while also sometimes providing omega-3’s, another key nutrient for eye health. Try foods like salmon, tuna, walnuts, flax seeds, and chia seeds to support your vision!
