Is there anything that I can eat that is good for my eyes?” Of course!
Your eyes are part of your body, and keeping your body healthy is the very first step to keeping your eyes healthy. During your dilated eye exam, your eye doctor is able to get a magnified view of your retina and the blood vessels inside of your eye. These blood vessels are very fragile and delicate, and thus if we see a problem with them, they can be an early warning sign for the rest of your body that something is wrong.
We usually recommend the same things that your primary care doctor recommends. High blood pressure, diabetes, heart disease and high cholesterol are all conditions that cause damage to your eyes. We want to prevent those conditions as much as we can, so we advise limiting your intake of fried foods, sugar-sweetened beverages, and salt. We also recommend tracking your dietary intake to gain a better understanding of nutrients that you are consuming.
