Eating well is the No. 1 way to take care of your eyes. What should your eye-healthy plate look like? Pretty much like any good, healthy meal. Start with a big spinach or kale salad topped with brightly-colored vegetables. Green leafy vegetables provide the nutrients lutein and zeaxanthin, shown to help reduce risk for eye diseases. And vitamin A found in bright yellow and orange vegetables like carrots and sweet potatoes boosts eye health. Adding fruits like strawberries, oranges, and mangoes provides vitamin C and other antioxidants, also help fight eye disease. Include salmon or other cold-water fish in your meal meal, since omega 3s are good for tear production, which relieves dry eyes.

Very important: Always make sure you discuss and make decisions about your eye care based upon a formal appointment with your optician or doctor.
