Food for combating eye disorders

Can you imagine life being blind? Being able to see through our eyes should be seen as a privilege. We can be thankful that in this day and age, the advances in technology and knowledge is so great that we know a great deal more about our eyes, vision, how to protect and maintain them. Yet the number of people going blind is increasing. Researchers have released an astounding fact that in 90% of cases where people go blind, they were actually preventable.

The three most common diseases/disorders that can cause blindness are cataracts, glaucoma and age-related macular degeneration (AMD). All 3 are age or time related. In most cases, people can be. You can help prevent or delay the oncoming of disorders by monitoring what you eat. Nutritional value is very important as different foods contain vitamins and nutrients essential for combating any deficiencies of the body.

Doctors and health experts recommend food containing vitamin A, B, C and E, Lutein, Zeaxanthin, Meso-zeaxanthin, zinc and magnesium to be great for the eyes. They say it helps prevent or delay the progress of the diseases/disorders.

Foods with:

Vitamin A: Pig liver, cod liver oil, carrots, sweet potato, spinach, kale, butter.
Vitamin B: Spinach, kale, milk, meat, liver, eggs, cheese, peas, fish, brown rice, butter.
Vitamin C: Sweet red pepper, strawberries, orange, brussel sprouts, broccoli, grapefruit.
Vitamin E: Almonds, hazelnuts, sweet potato, mayonnaise, wheat germ oil, margarine.
Lutein: Kale, collard greens, spinach, cress leaf, swiss chard, chicory leaf, parsley, red pepper.
Zeaxanthin: Collard greens, kale, spinach, yellow corn, orange peppers, goji berries.
Meso-zeaxanthin: Prawns, fish.
Zinc: Red meat, poultry, crab, lobster, nuts, beans, milk, yoghurt, cheese.
Magnesium: Artichoke, milk, nuts, beans, spinach, tomato.

The alternative to getting your intake from food would be vitamin and supplement tablets. These are vitamins manufactured to cover the most important nutrients your eyes require in sufficient quantity. Macusan, Ocuvite and MacuShield are 3 particular vitamin supplements. MacuShield is especially great for AMD but good for eyes generally as it contains Meso-zeaxanthin, the core compound for vision.

With many foods, super foods and vitamin supplements available you should eat these to keep your eyes healthy. They do not guarantee eye disorder protection as some disorders are genetic or happens due to aging but at least they can delay the progress of the diseases. Don’t wait until you see symptoms of eye disorders before you decide to act. Sometimes it may be too late, especially so with glaucoma. Glaucoma makes your vision deteriorate over a long period of time so change is not easily detectable. By the time you’ve noticed, the lost vision cannot be restored. Eat healthily and get your eyes checked regularly at the opticians.
