Eyesight is a highly vital sense that helps you to see and identify things around you, including people and objects. The eyesight also plays an important role in your life by making it possible for you to read, drive, and watch television. For that matter, Dr David Stager will discuss some recommended foods that can boost your child’s eyesight.
Eggs are a good source of vitamins A, B-12, and D. They also contain lutein, which is an antioxidant that helps prevent age-related macular degeneration (ARMD), by protecting the eye’s retina from damage caused by light exposure. Eggs are also a good source of choline, which helps with cell signaling in the brain, as well as iodine which aids in thyroid function.
Carrots are vegetables that are rich in beta-carotene, which is converted to vitamin A in the body. Vitamin A effectively helps protect the retina from damage and can help prevent night blindness. In addition, eating carrots can also help prevent age-related macular degeneration.
Tomatoes are rich in vitamin C, a nutrient that’s essential to good eyesight. Vitamin C helps to reduce the risk of cataracts and plays an important role in maintaining the health of your retina (the light-sensitive layer at the back of your eye).
Aside from that, tomatoes also contain beta-carotene, which is converted into vitamin A in the body. Vitamin A is very important for healthy eyes and helps maintain normal night vision by improving how well you see in dim light conditions.
And finally, spinach is a high-antioxidant vegetable and a very good source of lutein and zeaxanthin, which are two nutrients that can help protect against cataracts. It’s also rich in vitamin K, which helps blood flow to the eyes. Spinach can be used in smoothies, salads, soups, and omelets – or even as pizza toppings or pasta dishes!
