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
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
supplements for healthy eyes:
Vitamin A deficiency causes night blindness.
Vitamin A is essential in all eye problems. It can prevent cataract
and blindness caused by macular degeneration.
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 supplements can delay
macular degeneration. Zinc also seems to boost the effectiveness of
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 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.
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.
