Better Eyesight - Foods That Help

When it comes to your eyes you get one pair and no spare — so, it's recommended you take a closer look at what's on your plate.

Carrots have long been known to help keep our eyes sharp, but now there's a new list that shows the top food we can eat to help preserve good sight.

First off, here's a sight saving salad - mixed greens and spinach, tomatoes, blue cheese, nuts and a little bit of dried cranberries. Now, that's a feast for your eyes.

Here are other great foods for your sight.

- Foods with vitamin C such as oranges.

- Foods with vitamin E — such as grapeseed or olive oil.

- Omega three fatty acids from salmon or flax seed.

- Yellow and green fruits and vegetables.

These nutrients, along with an eye exam each year, can help you delay cataracts which cloud vision, and age related macular degeneration which is the leading cause of blindness with age.
