Abstract

These days many individuals are deficient in vitamins like vitamin A, vitamin C, zinc, lutein, and zeaxanthin, which are beneficial for eye health. Foods rich in these necessary vitamins must be consumed by everyone to maintain optimum eye health.

Four Beneficial Foods for Eye Health

Following are the list of foods necessary to maintain good eye health:

1. Egg Yolk:

Egg is an amazing superfood that contains lutein, zeaxanthin, and is also rich in vitamin A, which helps prevent age-related macular degeneration in an individual. Thus you can have it in the form of omelet along with chapatis or rotis for breakfast or have it for lunch in the form of a curry. Avoid adding too much oil in the curry.

2. Green Leafy Vegetables:

Green leafy vegetables like spinach and kale are another good source of vitamin A and beta-carotene, which are very beneficial to prevent cataracts and night-blindness. If you do not like the taste of spinach, incorporate it in your diet by adding it inside grilled tikkis. Believe me, you will definitely love it a lot and enjoy consuming this nutritious tikkis.

3. Almonds and Walnuts:

Almonds and walnuts are an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids, which is anti-inflammatory in nature and perfect for good eye health. You can have almonds during your mid-morning just in between your meetings or during the evening. You can also add them to smoothies and consume.

4. Oranges and Amlas (Indian Gooseberry):

Oranges and amlas are not only tasty but are also enriched with various nutrients, that are beneficial for the health of your eyes like vitamin A and Vitamin C (ascorbic acid). You can consume them during the mid-morning, or you can add them to curd with some flaxseeds or chia seeds. Amlas are also good for your hair health and will not make you bald soon if you consume an adequate amount of vitamin C regularly.

I hope you really loved reading my article on the four beneficial foods for the health of your eyes and would definitely start consuming these lovely superfoods! Have a great and an energetic day ahead.
