Improve Your Vision Naturally

by Wendy on December 5, 2014

Have you ever wondered if there was a way to decrease the risk of vision loss, or improve your eyesight naturally without an expensive medical procedure? There is, and it’s as simple as eating some of the right foods. Now, these aren’t some rare, exotic plants or food extracts, and they aren’t foods that will cost you a fortune either. These foods are available at your local grocery store, and can be instilled into your regular diet and meal preparation easily. Take a few minutes to go over this list of foods that can help improve your eyesight naturally:

 

Salmon: Vitamins A and D, and probably the most important, omega 3 fatty acids are all present in salmon. These healthy components of this delicious fish promote improved eyesight by boosting your brain power.

 

Garlic: Used in numerous dishes to enhance flavors and aromas, garlic has been shown to have numerous benefits for your health. It can help enhance the flow of blood, strengthen the immune system, and it is good for your eyesight. Garlic is rich in sulfur, a nutrient that helps the body produce antioxidants that can protect the lens of the eye.

 

Green Vegetables: Kale, spinach, broccoli – if it’s green and has leaves, it is a vegetable that is beneficial to improved eyesight. With an abundance of nutrients like vitamin A, vitamin B12, vitamin C and calcium, it’s hard to pass up the addition of these vegetables to your daily diet. According to the Glaucoma Research Foundation, spinach, in particular, is loaded with antioxidants which are typically found in your eyes. If you want to gain the most benefits from these vegetables, try not to overcook them. You don’t want to cook out all of those nutrients.

 

Avocados: Like spinach, avocados are rich in antioxidants commonly found in the eye such as lutein. Avocados are said to contain more lutein than any other fruit, which is important for improving your eyesight since lutein has the ability to reduce the risk of macular degeneration and cataracts.

 

Soy: Provide more nutrition to your eyes with soy. This food is low in fat, high in protein, and it contains important fatty acids and other nutrients that are beneficial to your eyes.

 

Eggs: Among the foods that are beneficial to your eyes, eggs are one of the most common. Eggs, and egg yolks in particular, carry an abundance of nutrients that are beneficial to your eyes and the rest of your body. Typically, the darker the egg yolk, the more nutritious it is.

 

Dark chocolate: As if you needed an excuse to eat this rich, decadent treat, dark chocolate has been shown to be very beneficial to your eyesight. By adding dark chocolate to your diet, you are increasing your intake of flavonoids that help protect blood vessels in your eyes. By protecting the blood vessels in your eyes, you are strengthening your eye lens and cornea as you age and your eyes begin to weaken.

Bilberries: Studies have shown that the consumption of bilberries can lead to the reversal of eye disorders like macular degeneration, which is the loss of vision in the center of a person’s visual field, and typically occurs in older adults.

 

Carrots: The most common food associated with improved eyesight is carrots. Carrots, and many other yellow and orange vegetables and fruits, contain beta-carotene, which is said to be good for the retina and can help protect your eyes from damage caused by the sun.

 

Take advantage of this list of foods to improve your eyesight naturally. Don’t wait till it’s too late, and you need expensive procedures or vision correction to have functioning eyesight. These foods won’t cost as much money as something like laser eye surgery, and they are quite tasty. Aside from foods to help improve your eyesight naturally, you should also avoid or cut back on the following foods as much as possible to prevent vision loss:

 

  • Sugar
  • Foods with a high glycemic index like pasta, bread and cereals
  • Trans-fats
  • Refined flour
  • Monosodium glutamate
