Good Foods For The Eyes!

Everybody wants healthy eyes. No one wants to loose his/her sight. We need to eat good foods that help maintain healthy eyes. We already know that carrots amd other orange coloured fruits are good for the eyes. Eating your way to good eyesight is not only about beta carotene. There are other foods that are good for the eyes.
 Leafy green vegetables: They contain luxein and zeaxanthin antioxidants that lower the risk of developing macular degeneration and cataracts.

 Eggs: The yolk is a prime source of lutein and
 zeaxanthin—plus zinc, which also helps reduce your macular degeneration
 risk.
CITRUS AND BERRIES: These fruits are powerhouses of vitamin C, which has been shown to reduce the risk of developing macular degeneration and cataracts.
ALMONDS: They're filled with vitamin E, which slows macular degeneration. One handful (an ounce) provides about half of your daily dose
 of vitamin E.
FATTY FISH: Tuna, salmon, mackerel, anchovies and
 trouts are rich in DHA, a fatty acid found
in your retina—low levels of which
 have been linked to dry eye syndrome .
Kale : Rich in cancer-fighting antioxidants and vitamins, kale
is also a good source of beta-carotene and is the top
combo of both lutein and zeaxanthin; one cup of
greens contains 23.8 mg of lutein and zeaxanthin. Use
kale in a salad or a side dish; blend it into fruit
 smoothies; or bake the leaves into kale chips.
