Healthy eyesight is healthy experiences. We often talk about a healthy mind and body, how often do we discuss about a healthy lifestyle when it comes to eyes?

The Working of our Eye:

The light falls on the eye and is processed through the vitreous humor: gel like substance made up of protein. The image is received by the retina and then processed through the optic nerve by electrical impulses, where it is registered by the brain.

For a healthy functioning, the eye must have adequate blood circulation to carry out multiple sight functions in a fraction of a second.

Know more about a healthy diet to maintain and secure all your eye functions.

For Vegetarians:

Spinach, Kale, Collard full of lutein and zeaxanthin, broccoli, peas and avocados are a powerful antioxidant duo. You can also substitute this with Brown rice and quinoa that are also high in Vitamin E and zinc.

For Fish Lovers :

You can have Cold Water fish- like sardines, tuna and mackerel that are high on omega-3 fatty acids. Supplements like cod liver oil or flaxseed oil also work very well in providing necessary vitamins.

For Fruit Lovers:

Many citrus fruits like Orange, grapefruit, lemon and berries are high on taste and vitamin content. Add these to your daily diet for taste and health! It can be your favourite snack!

Non Meat Protein:

Apart from veggies if you do not like meat so much make sure you add Eggs, Almonds, Walnuts and other nuts in your daily food intake.

Others:

Most importantly with a healthy diet, external protection to the eye is also crucial.
