3. Spinach, Kale, Green Veggies:
Spinach and kale and many other green leafy vegetables are very rich in antioxidants stored in two gold points in the eyes – lutein and zeaxanthin. The macula is the part of the retina which acts as a natural sunscreen, shielding and protecting your eyes from harmful light. Lutein and zeaxanthin absorb blue light which can harm the retina.
These nutrients also help the eyes detect contrast better, so eating foods rich in antioxidants will not only improve but also help to maintain your long-term vision. Lutein and zeaxanthin are fat solubles, so eating green vegetables and olive oil will help to ensure that you can absorb nutrients better.
