    Vitamin A plays an important role in keeping eyes healthy. Lacking of vitamin A can cause night vision problems. While eating enough vitamin A can help prevent night vision and reduce the risk of cataracts and macular degeneration. Vitamin C is also good for eye health. So eating food rich in vitamins can maintain eye health. Carotenoids like alpha-carotene, beta-carotene, beta-cryptoxanthin, lutein, zeaxanthin and lycopene are very important nutrients for eye health. They are rich in yellow, orange and red pigments fruits and vegetables.

    To keep eye healthy, you shall eat more food contains Lutein, Vitamin C and Glutathione etc. For example, spinach, leafy green vegetables, and corn contains Lutein that can improve the health of your eyes by preventing oxidative damage to your retina. And research shows that people who eat fruits and vegetables (contain Vitamin C ) are less likely to develop eye conditions than those who eat fewer. Again, you shall obtain Glutathione from eggs, garlic, avocados, asparagus, and onions that can prevent cataracts.
