The link between food and your overall eye health

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!⁣
