Maintaining a healthy diet is not only essential for keeping good health, but equally important to keep your eyesight free from maladies and problems. Serious eye issues like dry eyes, poor night vision, and cataracts could be avoided if a range of vitamins, nutrients, and minerals, known as antioxidants can be included in your daily diet. Let's have a look at some nutritious foods that are essential for improving eye health. These foods are beneficial for your eyes, however in case of any medical condition always consult your doctor.

Eggs

Eggs are considered an essential source of nutrition for eye health. The yolks contain vitamin A, lutein, zeaxanthin, and zinc, which are all vital to eye health. Vitamin A safeguards the cornea.
