Are you suffering from eye strain? Getting too much screen-time?

Well, your eating choices can make a difference. According to Secret China, here are the top four types of food to  keep your vision healthy.

Vitamin A

Beef, goat, chicken liver, egg yolk, butter, dairy, etc. This may maintain normal cornea function, helping to prevent drying out and becoming degraded. Vitamin A enhances the ability to see in the dark.

Multi-carotene

Kale, spinach, lettuce, cabbage, and dark green leafy vegetables in general, as well as carrots, pumpkin, sweet potatoes, mango, papaya, oranges, and yellow fruits. Add a little oil when cooking these foods, or when making a salad.

Riboflavin (Vitamin B2)

It ensures normal functioning of the eyes’ retinas and corneas. It is contained in milk, fresh nuts, lean meat, eggs, yeast, and beans.  A deficiency of riboflavin can lead to cracking and reddening of the lips, mouth and throat alignments, and iron deficiencies. An overdose is rare.

Vitamin C

Citrus fruits, hawthorn berries, jujube, kiwi fruit, strawberries, etc.

It protects against immune system deficiencies, cardiovascular disease, eye disease, supports prenatal health, and helps prevent skin wrinkling. It is one of the safest and most effective nutrients.
