You Eye What You Eat!

Eye Exam Machine | Florida Eye Specialists

Want to do everything that you can to prevent the possibility of glaucoma, cataracts and macular degeneration? A well balanced diet can help that!

“New research shows that 60% of people are unaware that what we consume has an impact on our eye health, with another 20% believing that changing your diet won’t affect your eye – which is not the case.”

Eating carrots does help you see in the dark (it really does – a vitamin A deficiency can lead to night blindness), but there is more to healthy eyeballs than orange vegetables.

What you need!

Vitamins, minerals and trace elements

Vitamins C and E, zinc, copper and selenium protect your cells from damage cause by oxidative stress.

Omega-3 and essential fatty acids

These “good fats” help maintain healthy vision, brain functions and normal blood pressure.


Research has found that shoes this substance, which is produced by plants in response to bacteria, also protects against oxidation damage to cells.

Lutein and Zeaxanthin

These substances enrich macular pigmentation in the eye which protects it against harmful affects of light exposure.
