Certain nutrients play a key role in the health of our eyes. Keeping a balance diet also means protecting your eyesight.
- Vitamin A is essential for the retina and helps the cornea to better resist infections.
It is found in oranges (carrots, sweet potatoes) and green (spinach, zucchini) vegetables, as well as in egg yolk.
- The antioxidant vitamins C and Ehave a role in preventing cataracts and the progression of age-related macular degeneration (AMD).
Vitamin C is found in certain fruits (orange, grapefruit, blueberries, etc.) and vitamin E in nuts (almonds, hazelnuts) and vegetable oils.
- Omega 3 fatty acids are important for a child’s sight development and also play a role in the prevention of AMD.

And no miracle diet in sight! A daily intake of vitamins and minerals can delay the progression of age-related eye diseases and keep our eyes healthy.
