It doesn’t matter if you are a stay-at-home-mom, or an orthopaedic surgeon, your eyes are one of your most important organs. Much of the time we are genetically predisposed to the eyes we are given, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t try and take care of them anyway.

As we all know, our diet has a lot to do with keeping our bodily systems functioning correctly, so here are five foods that can help your vision, aside from carrots of course.

Almonds are my favorite snack anyway, and it helps that they are loaded with vitamin E, which helps fight macular degeneration.

Citrus is packed with vitamin C, which also helps reduce macular degeneration risk.

Leafy greens offer the antioxidants lutein and xeaxanthin, which can help lower the risk of cataracts, as well as macular degeneration.

Fish like tuna, salmon, mackerel, anchovies, and trout are rich in a fatty acid called DHA, which is present in your retina, and helps prevent dry eye syndrome..

Eggs provide the same antioxidants as leafy greens as well as zinc, which helps prevent macular degeneration.
