When your mother told you to eat up your ‘greens’ she was absolutely right.
The darker and leafier your greens, the better they are for your eyes. Not only do they contain Vitamin C and omega 3 which are important for a healthy eye as well as a healthy body but they also contain high levels of lutein and zeaxanthin.
Kale and spinach, whether fresh or frozen have the highest content of lutein and zeaxanthin
Broccoli, lettuce (darker leafy type such as Romaine), turnip greens, peas, brussels sprouts, celery, parsley, green beans and raw onions can also help to boost your macular pigments of lutein and zeaxanthin.
