5 tips for better eye nutrition and strengthening eye vision
Hereditary factors and diet are most important for the health and sharpness of eye vision – ophthalmologists and doctors agree. The most common disorder of eye vision (after the age of 40) is senile farsightedness (presbyopia). Practically all people face this problem, regardless of whether they had excellent eye vision and sharpness during their youth. With age, the elasticity of the lens of the eye decreases. The eye thickens and stops changing curvature when observing nearby objects. That is why a person finds it harder to distinguish small objects, newspaper fonts and the like.
- With proper nutrition, senile farsightedness and the progression of this ailment and other eye diseases can be avoided. Eye sharpness can be improved.
- Particularly useful foods include: blueberries, pomegranates, apricots and other fruits and vegetables rich in vitamin C, carotenoids and antioxidants. These substances strengthen the sharpness of the eyes, have a regenerating effect and contribute to faster recovery of damaged cells.
- The diet should include pumpkin, pumpkin, sweet peppers, carrots, cabbage, onions, eggplant and tomatoes.
- Heat treatment of all foods should be minimal with unrefined vegetable oils. Preparation time should be short (5 to 10 minutes) to preserve vitamins and biologically active substances as much as possible.
- The cooking pot must be covered (without mixing food in the pot) and with minimal chopping of ingredients.
