Nutrition and Eye Health
Our diet influences many
aspects of our lives, both physical and emotional. Nutrition and
eye health go hand-in-hand, and this can help the estimated 16 million
people over the age of 45 that have some sort of eye vision loss
in the United States.
Key components in the nutrition and eye
health link are six nutrients: the antioxidants lutein, zeaxanthin,
beta-carotene, vitamin C and E, and zinc.
