    Eating moderate amounts of fish , like once a week, can prevent macular degeneration which is age-related. Macula is in the central part of the retina which is reponsible for central vision. If macula is destroyed, it will cause vision loss. In the USA, macular degeneration is the leading cause that people get vision loss.

    I think it is true,especially the fish eyes are good to your eyes.I can't find the scientific reason,but for my own experience,I eat fish a lot when I was young and I have perfect vision now.

    Eating fish can prevent the degeneration of macular retina which is the main reason of causing blindness.But it doesn't mean that the more fish you eat,the better for your eyes.
