Vegetables & fruits for poor vision

(Last Updated: Mar 14, 2008)


In order to improve your vision, it is important to eat well. The most important nutrient for improving poor vision is vitamin A. The richest sources of this vitamin are carrots, milk and all milk products, leafy greens such as spinach, collard greens and mustard greens, turnips, tomatoes, peas and dates. It is also important that you focus on fresh vegetables as opposed to canned or preserved. You must also up your intake of fresh fruits in order to improve your eyesight. Apples, peaches, plums, cherries and grapes are excellent for the eyes. Oranges are also considered particularly good in helping to improve eyesight. You must try to have the juice of at least four oranges each day, or to at least eat two.

Apart from natural fresh fruits and vegetables, there are also cereals such as oatmeal which will help to improve general eyesight. Soya beans are also a very rich source of vitamin A and must be eaten regularly in order to improve eyesight over a long period of time. All whole grains are also excellent ways to keep your eyes healthy. Although this is not a rule, it is better to avoid processed foods in order to keep your eyes healthy. You must also avoid sugar-rich foods for the same purpose.
