One question I get asked EVERYDAY by patients is what food should is good for the eyes. It’s important to remember that the eyes are a part of the body, and you are nourishing your body including the eyes.
I love a food salad bar, so many options, it’s easy to find things that you can like, enjoy, and feel good eating.
Salmon contains omega 3’s, which are fatty acids that are good for dry eyes.
Eggplant contains magnesium and a good source of fibre.
Feta contains calcium, vitamin b12, folic acid and vitamin D. ( I like to mix with balsamic vinegar for dressing)
Pomegranate contains vitamin k, vitamin B and antioxidants that neutralize free radicals, therefore reducing damage to the macula of the eyes.
A leafy green salad with protein is a great lunch, good for the body and the eyes!
