Did you know that daily intake of certain nutrients – either through foods or supplements – has been linked to healthy eyes and may reduce the risk of some chronic eye conditions? Leafy green vegetables, tuna, salmon, orange juice, nuts, peanut butter, red meat, poultry are all good for your eyes. If supplements are needed, lutein, dha/epa, vitamin C and E and zinc are all beneficial.
