What Can We Do To Help Protect Our Eyesight?


Good eyesight helps us see the world in all its brightness, but what can we do to help protect it? Many of us don’t check our eyesight until something really drastic happens. There are 10 tips to protect our eyesight.
  1.  Beta Carotene Helps Eyesight: Carrots, sweet potatoes are well known sources of beta carotene which the body changes to vitamin A. Vitamin A is an antioxidant that helps eyesight by protecting eyes from free radicals that can cause retinal damage;
  2. The European Blueberry Link To Better Eyesight: Bilberry, known  as the European Blueberry, is rich in anthocyanins, which is responsible for its deep rich colouring. Bilberries have much higher oxygen radical absorbance capacity (ORAC) which means that it’s a great source of antioxidants.  Clinical studies have shown that bilberry helps to protect eyes by reducing symptoms occurring in the eyes from excessive computer use, maintaining blood vessels in the eyes and stabilizing the connective tissue in the eyes and reduces the occurrence of diabetic retinopathy;
  3.  Vitamin E Helps Eyesight Degeneration: This is a fat soluble substance found in certain foods such as olive oil, almonds, walnuts, soybean oil and other nuts and vegetables. There is a lot of alternative medicine research that suggests that Vitamin E is essential to protect eyes from the further effects of macular degeneration
  4. Protect Eyesight From Light With Lutein & Zeaxanthin: In an attempt to protect itself from the damaging effects of light, the retina accumulates two substances: Lutein and zeaxanthin.
  5. Vitamin C, the Super-antioxidant for Great Eyesight: Vitamin C is known as a super-antioxidant because it effective protection against free radicals including those affecting your eyesight. Great sources of Vitamin C are citrus fruits, strawberries, red bell peppers.
  6.  Protect Eyesight with Shades: Wearing sunglasses, especially during the high sun of the afternoon goes a long way in protecting your eyes from damage down the line. While any shades are better than none, the best protection comes from those with labels specifying UVA/UVB protection and those that provide peripheral protection as well.
  7. The DHA Connection to Better Eyesight: We all know that Omega-3 fatty acid does wonders. But a certain omega-3 fatty acid in fish called Docosahexaenoic Acid (DHA) may help protect eyes in addition to repairing damage and keeping arteries clean! This form of Omega-3 is found in fatty fish such as tuna. If you can’t stand fish, DHA is also present in flaxseed, walnuts, mustard/turnip/collard greens kale, arugula, Swiss chard, and spinach.
  8. Help Improve Your Eyesight With Some Wine (sort of): according to research, resveratrol is shown to hinder the growth of pathogens in new blood vessels. If you are not a wine drinker, then that’s OK. Resveratrol is present in grapes (darker the better), blueberries, and even peanuts.
  9. Ginkgo, Good For Memory and Eyesight: Ginkgo is an herb that has been around for thousands of years and is known to help with memory disorders. It works by opening up the blood vessels and increasing blood flow to the brain and, by extension, the eyes.
  10.  Get Better Eyesight With Curry: Specifically turmeric has an antioxidant called curcumin which research shows helps to delay the onset of cataracts in mice. Another great reason to partake in those spicy curry dishes.
