Incorporate More Of These Eye-Healthy Foods Into Your Diet
Spinach & Kale: Your eyes can be protected from damage and dangerous imbalances by the antioxidants in leafy greens.
Eggs and Fish: Eye disease and dry eyes can be prevented by Omega 3’s found in eggs and fish.
Broccoli: Broccoli is great for your retina health and can protect your eyes from sun damage. It’s also packed with eye-boosting beta carotene.
Garlic: Nutrients in garlic may protect against cataracts and eye disease.
Turkey: Turkey is full of zinc, which fights off age-related macular degeneration.
Oranges: Eye tissue can altogether improve by eating citrus fruits, like oranges. The Vitamin C in them is what does the trick!

A Healthy Lifestyle Is Key To Having Healthy Eyes
Everyone should exercise every day and this includes: walking, running, biking, gardening, hiking, house cleaning, lifting weights, and of course get 7-8 hours of sleep. You can do perform each activity every day so vary your daily activities. Anything loaded with extra sugar (candies and gum chewing)will not promote eye health. So go easy on the sodas, ice creams, cakes, and pies.
