That is the advice from the National Eye Institute.
We’ve all heard the rumours that carrots are good for your eyes, but the truth is that a balanced diet does play an important factor in taking care of your eyes. A diet that is rich in fruit and vegetables, especially dark leafy greens, are packed with the vitamins and minerals your eyes need.
Below is a list of some great food you might want to slide into salad:
- Collard greens
Research has also shown there are eye health benefits from eating fish that is rich in omega-3 fatty acids, such as salmon, tuna, and halibut. Or if you are not into your seafood you can take omega-3 supplements. At Cathedral Eye Clinic, we have developed Eye Nutrients Dry Omega, a special blend of Omega 3 created by Professor Moore specifically to relieve the symptoms of dry eye.
On the 23rd and 26th of September at the Student’s Union in Belfast, we will be showcasing this well balanced and palatable omega-3 supplement.
