Keep your eyes
fit and healthy

We all know that nutrition and
exercise play an essential role
in maintaining physical health.
But did you know they can also benefit your sight?

Nutrition
for your eyes

It's important to consider the impact of your diet and general health on your eyesight.

Diet - A whole host of foods are important for good vision.
Leafy green vegetables such as spinach, kale and broccoli contain:
  • Lutein and zeaxanthin, which help prevent cataracts. Lutein also stimulates the growth of pigments that help block out harmful UV rays.
  • Vitamins C and E and zinc, which reduce the risk of developing a condition called age-related macular degeneration (AMD).
  • Antioxidants, which protect against sun damage.

  • Onions
  • Shallots
  • Garlic
  • Capers

Regular
Exercise

For healthy eyes, regular physical activity is every bit as vital as good diet. Exercise makes the heart work better and this prevents high blood pressure, which can damage vision and even lead to blindness. Exercise and diet are essential to maintain a healthy body weight and prevent diabetes, which can cause vision loss in adults.
