How Can Nutrition Help?

circle icon

Research has shown that what you eat can affect your eyes and brain. The key to managing their effects is to know what certain nutrients do and how they can address particular ocular concerns.

Our first step, as always, is to perform an eye exam and determine how nutrition can support specific issues, even if they are small. For example, foods with Vitamin E can promote tear function, while leafy greens can help protect your macula as you age.

We can recommend a specific nutrition plan after performing an eye exam. We personalize your plan based on our findings, but we can always readjust our recommendations to better reflect your eye health as it changes throughout life.

Take a look at the various foods we may recommend and how they can support your eye health and vision.

Foods for Supporting Your Vision

Vitamin A, E, and C can help support your vision quality throughout your life. Some of these foods can include:

  • Carrots
