Holiday meals stand out in our memories because they are festive, delicious, and we get to use the fancy silverware and china, right?
What about making this Thanksgiving a literal feast for the eyes by including foods that have a nutritional benefit for your family’s vision? Recent research indicates that good nutrition helps protect eyes from age-related macular degeneration (AMD).
Vitamins C and E and the carotenoids lutein and zeaxanthin can help reduce the risk of eye disease. Vitamin C is found in most fruits and vegetables and vitamin E is found in nuts and seeds. Dark green leafy vegetables are a good source of lutein and zeaxanthin. For more detailed information about antioxidants, diet, and nutritional supplements and their effect on eye disease, visit the American Optometric Association website.
