26 Foods that are Good for Your Eyes

Here’ what you need to eat to keep your eyesight sharp!

1. Carrots

This orange vegetable has a reputation for a reason. Packed with beta-carotene, an antioxidant which is converted into vitamin A (4). One medium carrot alone contains 200% of your daily value of vitamin A (5).

Plus, one major study found that beta-carotene combined with zinc, vitamin C, vitamin E and copper (which are all found in carrots too) can slow the progression of macular degeneration (6).

2. Iceberg Lettuce

You may think that dark leafy vegetables such as spinach, kale, and swiss chard are the only leaves worth eating, but you’re missing out.

Iceberg lettuce is a good source of vitamin A and fiber while being low in calories (7). To increase absorption of this fat-soluble vitamin, make your own olive oil and apple cider vinaigrette (8).

3. Sweet Potatoes

Sweet potatoes, like carrots, have beta-carotene to thank for their vivid orange color. 1 cup of cooked sweet potato has more than 7% your daily value of vitamin A (9). Purple sweet potato, on the other hand, promotes eye cell survival and division and protects eye cells from damage (10).

4. Cod Liver Oil

This excellent source of omega 3 fatty acids, which can help reduce abnormal blood vessel growth (11). Available in both liquid and capsule form, cod liver oil is also a great source of vitamin D. This vitamin is crucial for good blood supply flowing to the retinas (12). What’s more, the supplement also contains vitamin A.
