Eating healthy and maintaining your overall health is a great preventive measure to help your eyes stay as healthy as possible into the future.

Getting the nutrients your body needs to perform its best and stay healthy, combined with routine comprehensive eye exams, can provide you with healthy vision for years to come.

Vitamins, Minerals, & Omega-3s

Have you ever heard that carrots are good for your eyes? That’s because they are rich in vitamin C, calcium, biotin, potassium, and more. 

Carrots aren’t the only good thing for your eyes. Eating a diet rich in vitamins, minerals, and omega-3s can contribute to healthy eyes.

  • Vitamins like C, E, and A benefit several parts of the eye, including the cornea, retina, aqueous and vitreous humour, the lens, and more. Leafy greens, fruits, nuts, seeds, oranges, and colourful vegetables are often high in vitamins that benefit your eyesight.
  • Minerals like calcium, sodium, and zinc benefit many parts of your body. Zinc is often considered one of the most beneficial minerals for eyesight because it carries vitamins from your liver and helps protect your eye.
  • Omega-3s help promote eye health and carry vitamins throughout your body. Your retina is made up of DHA, one of the omega-3 fatty acids.
