A healthy diet is fundamentally important for the body in general and for good vision in particular.  Like every other structure in the body, the eye must be nourished with the correct nutrients and in the correct amounts, in order to perform optimally.


A healthy diet can also reduce the appearance of cataracts and age-related macular degeneration, as well as contribute to the prevention of many ocular diseases.
