Eating More Than Carrots Can Help Keep Your Eyes Healthy
Most of us heard our mothers tell us, when we were growing up, to eat our carrots because they were good for our eyes. While she was right, there are many other foods that have health benefits for our eyes. A recent press release from Dr. James McDonnell, at Loyola University, has given us a list of the foods that have the most benefit for our eye health.
Eating a variety of fresh fruits and vegetables is of particular importance. "Make a colorful plate, especially with greens, blues and reds," says Dr. McDonnell, who has practiced ophthalmology for more than 20 years. "Certain foods have distinct benefits for the eyes in addition to overall health including many of the trendy superfoods such as kale, broccoli and sweet potatoes."
