Foods Which Are Beneficial to Eyesight

Author: Green Alice

If you find there is something abnormal in your eyesight, or your eyesight becomes decline, the best suggestion is to go to the doctor and have it diagnosed and cured by the doctor. At the mean time, we should also realize that, in fact, daily diet also has a supplementary effect to improve the eyesight.

For example, vitamin A has a direct relationship with the light sensitivity of the eye, so it is a nutrient which is directly related to the health of eyesight. While I²-carotene can change into vitamin A in the body, so it is also very beneficial to the eyesight. What's more, B group vitamins, especially vitamin B1 and vitamin B12, are closely related with the health of the nervous system, including the optic nerve. Lack of B vitamins will easily lead to paralysis or pathological changes of the nerve system. As a result, B group vitamins are also necessary for health of the eyesight.

In addition, after relevant researches, experts point out that, free radicals will cause damage on the eyeball and optic nerve. As a result, the nutrients which can help capture the free radicals have an indirect effect for the protection of the eye. Such nutrients include I²-carotene, vitamin C, vitamin E, vitamin B2, selenium and so on. Following is the list of the foods which are beneficial to the health of eyesight.

First, foods containing a lot of vitamin A and I²-carotene, including liver, eel, carrots, pumpkin, rape, garland chrysanthemum, leek flower, mustard greens, sweet potato leaves, water spinach, mango, eggs, cod liver oil and so on.

Second, foods which are rich in B group vitamins, such as whole grains, liver, yeast, yogurt, wheat germ, beans, milk (vitamin B2), meat (vitamin B1,and niacin) and so on.

Third, foods which contain a large number of vitamin C, such as, vegetables, guava, orange, mango, papaya, pomelo and other fresh fruits and fruit juices.

Fourth, foods which are rich in vitamin E, such as sweet potato, bean products, carrots, eggs, whole grains, vegetable oils, green leafy vegetables, and so on.

In a word, experts recommend that people should try to take in adequate nutrition from fresh fruits and vegetables. An appropriate amount of dairy products, fish, lean meats and whole grains are very helpful to the health of the eye. If you want to take some nutrition supplements, you should follow the advice of the physicians.

    • Knoxville says:

      Carrots for sure, if you dont like them, dress them up a bit.

      Do you like ranch? Slice them into thin slices and dip them in ranch, Just like eating a tasty chip…

      Boil them and add them to your stew, or

      Shave them into tiny pieces, and add them to a salad,

      You need these vegis, and carrots are the best for eye sight..

    Foods to improve eyesight?
    I’m collecting as much information as I can.
    Do these foods help improve eyesight?

    1. Nuts and Almond (I put these 2 in different categories because I like almonds a lot so I really want to know)
    2. Fish (Any kind?)
    3. Chicken eggs
    4. Cabbage – cooked
    5. Lettuce and Salad and the ones at grocery stores in those bags called Ice Berg or something. They’re already chopped up for you so you just have to pour it out and add ranch.
    6. Dark Chocolate
    7. Green tea
    8. Fruits (any kind?) and carrots
    9. Avocados
    10. Corn

    What do potatoes do for your body then? I like potatoes so I want to know.
    I just want a yes or a no to the foods and the answer about the potatoes. That’s it.

      I truly hate to disappoint you, but the foods listed above are not going to play any role in improving your eyesight. Genetics determine what your eyesight will be. So the answer to the first question is, No.

      Potatoes give you energy and I love them too.
