Food and lifestyle choices can have a significant impact on the health of your eyes. Numerous scientific studies have shown that certain foods and nutrients decrease the risk of specific eye disease such as cataracts, age-related macular degeneration, and dry eye syndrome.
Not only do eye nutrients reduce the risk of eye disease, certain nutrients are important in the functioning of the eye. The eye uses nutrients to create vision. Some of the most important nutrients include lutein and zeaxanthin, vitamin C, vitamin E, and zinc.
Eye Wellness founder and optometrist, Dr. Laurie Capogna, has co-authored two books that provide a clear plan on the foods, nutrients, and lifestyle habits that will help you to maintain healthier eyes. The books, Eyefoods: A Food Plan for Healthy Eyes and Eyefoods for Kids: A Tasty Guide to Nutrition and Eye Health, are top-sellers in Canada.
