SUMMER IS HERE! Foods to help your eyesight in Summer





















Healthy eating is essential for healthy eyes. You should understand that what you eat heavily affects your eyesight. This means that you need to consume food which is rich in nutrients as they improve your eyesight and help in avoiding any development of vision problems in long-term. 

The antioxidants known as lutein and zeaxanthin are known to resist the formation of cataracts and macular degeneration. Omega-3 helps in reducing the chances of getting dry eyes and maintain eye health during old age. Fishes like Tuna and Salmon are great sources of Omega-3.  Along with them adding food rich in Vitamins C, E and zinc help in mitigating the age-related macular degeneration’s symptoms. Milk, cheese, and other poultry products are good sources of zinc.

Spinach

When we take a cup of spinach pack, it consists of around 20.4 mg of lutein and zeaxanthin. It can be added to different dishes as an ingredient like as a salad starter, make green smoothies, sandwiches, wraps etc. Your body absorbs lutein better if the greens are cooked. 

Corn

It’s just not for adding a taste to the food. It contains the nutrients like zeaxanthin and lutein. A research has shown that longer cooking results in an increase of lutein level. 

A lot of water consumption

The issue of dehydration becomes common in summer and it affects the eyesight as well. If the dehydration reaches a critical state, the tear-producing power of the body is degraded and leading to vision problems as well as dry eye symptoms. The best solution is to drink as much water as possible and prevent the negative effects of dehydration. The normal flow of water in the body provides the fluid for normal eye function. The nutrient-rich food which is good in taste can be added in the diet of everyone.
