Nutrition may be particularly important given that currently, treatment options after diagnosis for these eye diseases are limited.

Eye-Friendly Vitamins & Nutrients

There’s no substitute for the quality of life good vision offers. Adding certain nutrients to your diet every day – either through foods or supplements – can help save your vision. Researchers have linked eye-friendly nutrients such as lutein/zeaxanthin, vitamin C, vitamin E, and zinc to reducing the risk of certain eye diseases, including macular degeneration and cataract formation.
