The good vision diet
Choose low-fat foods. If you have high cholesterol, work on getting it down. A higher intake of foods rich in certain carotenoids (lutein and zeaxanthin, which give plants their orange, red or yellow colour) may lower the risk of developing advanced or exudative (wet) macular degeneration. Foods rich in carotenoids include egg yolk, kiwifruit, zucchini, spinach, peas, honeydew melon, Brussels sprouts, green beans, apples, corn, grapes, pumpkin, capsicum, cucumber, orange juice, celery, spring onions, broccoli and mango. A high intake of omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids can reduce the incidence of cataracts and adequate protein in your diet helps to reduce the risk of one type of cataract.
