How to improve your eyesight naturally

You can lower the risk of eye diseases and issues with antioxidants such as vitamin A, E and C. Lutein and zeaxanthin are antioxidants that act like natural sunglasses. They are present in the macula region of the eye and protect it from the dangerous UV-rays as well as oxidative damage. The richest sources of these two antioxidants are vegetables such as kale, spinach, chard, parsley, chicory, collards and other leafy green vegetables. Lutein and zeaxanthin can also be found in pumpkin, squash, broccoli, Brussel sprouts and peas.

Vitamin D is very important for your eyesight. Vitamin D deficiency is one of the main causes of vision problems. According to some studies on lab mice, constant intake of vitamin D for six weeks significantly improved their vision and reduced the inflammation of the retina. We get vitamin D mostly from the Sun, but you need to consume food rich in fat soluble vitamins such as organic meats. Ditch the sunglasses too: wearing them prevents you from getting proper sunlight which in turn affects processes in the body.

Omega-3 fatty acids are responsible for prevention of some optic nerve disorders and glaucoma. Eskimos have one of the lowest rates of glaucoma thanks to their high daily intake of Omega-3 fatty acids. This is due to their fish-rich diet. Omega-3 fatty acids must be acquired through food as the body can’t produce them on its own. They are also one of the reasons for breastfeeding, as they are present in breast milk. Salmon, sardines, herring and tuna are rich sources of omega-3 fatty acids.

These were only a few examples of natural alternatives that will improve your eyesight. Over time, lenses and glasses will worsen the condition, and this is what your doctor didn’t tell you. However, you can resolve the problem using natural food.
