• What vitamins and minerals are good for my eyes?

Omega 3 fatty acids (EPA and DHA) help protect adult eyes from macular degeneration, dry eye syndrome and decrease the risk of glaucoma. Vitamin C and Bilberry, a bioflavanoid, help protect the cornea and blood vessels in the retina, and reduce the risk of cataract formation and macular degeneration. Vitamin A helps protect the cornea, aids in reducing eye infections and decreases the risk of macular degeneration. Anyone who smokes should not take excessive Vitamin A or Beta carotene because of the increased risk of developing lung cancer. Vitamin E helps to possibly prevent cataracts and macular degeneration. Lutein and zeaxanthin provide protection against damage to the retina. Zinc and selenium help your body absorb Vitamin A and Vitamin E and protect against macular degeneration and night blindness.
