Eye Problems

The eyes are complex organs which provide us vision, the most important sense. Eye problems come in many different forms, such as refractive disorders (e.g. myopia), eyestrains, cataracts, glaucoma, conjunctivitis, dry eyes, macular degeneration.  Some medical conditions also cause eye disorders, e.g. diabetes.  Because eyes are such important and delicate organs, eye problems need to be treated by medical professionals without delay. 

A healthy diet, avoidance of intense close work and inadequate light, sufficient sleep, good personal hygiene, sufficient amounts of vitamins and minerals are essential to maintain healthy eyes.   Some food supplements are also known to improve eyesight and lessen the symptoms of mild eye problems.

 

Food supplements for healthy eyes:

Vitamin A

Vitamin A deficiency causes night blindness.  Vitamin A is essential in all eye problems.  It can prevent cataract and blindness caused by macular degeneration.

 

Carotenoid complex

Beta-carotene is a precursor of Vitamin A and is found in orange or yellow fruits and vegetables.  Lutein and zeaxanthin can reduce the risk of cataracts and age-related macular degeneration.  Lutein and zeaxanthin are closely related and they are often found in dark green vegetables together. Our body can also convert Lutein to zeaxanthin. 

 

Vitamin C with bioflavonoids

Vitamin C is an antioxidant that can protect our eyes (lens and retina) from free radical damage.  Vitamin C can also promote healing in the cornea.  High levels of vitamin C can reduce the risk of cataracts and glaucoma, and delay age-related macular degeneration. Bioflavonoids help your body to absorb vitamin C. 

 

Zinc

Zinc supplements can delay macular degeneration. Zinc also seems to boost the effectiveness of vitamin A.

 

Bilberry

Bilberry contains anthocyanosides, which strengthen blood vessels and improve circulation to the eyes. Bilberry protects eyes from eyestrain or fatigue.  It may also improve vision in those suffering from  glaucoma, cataracts, and age-related macular degeneration.

 

Eyebright

Eyebright is a herb used traditionally for eye troubles.  It is both anti-inflammatory and astringent.  It soothes watery eyes and helps relieve swelling and irritation.

 

Goldenseal

Another herb that has anti-inflammatory and astringent effect.  Goldenseal contains berberine, which constricts the blood vessels.  Goldenseal can be used to relieve tired, irritated, itching, and bloodshot eyes.
