Q&A with Dr. Law
Dr. Law Answers Your Eye Care Questions
Are carrots really good for my eyes? Are there other foods that are beneficial for my vision health?
Although carrots hold a great reputation for being good for the eyes, there are other foods that play a larger role in maintaining your eyesight. Antioxidants protect against eye damage from UV exposure and cigarette smoking. Foods rich in antioxidants such as lutein and zeathinin are green leafy vegetables such as spinach and kale. Foods rich in Vitamin C also an antioxidant are also great for the eyes, so oranges, strawberries and grapefruits. In addition, essential fatty acids are also considered helpful not only in preventing eye diseases such as macular degeneration but also aiding in tear production for dry eyes, so consider certain oily fish such as salmon.
Dry Eye Syndrome
Your tears comfort your eyes in many ways. Dr. Alan Schlussel is the founding director of The Dry Eye Treatment Center of New York and New Jersey. Dry eye strikes when your eyes can’t produce enough tears for lubrication or the moisture in your tears evaporates too quickly.
