Nutrition and Eye Health: Latest Evidence

Nutrition plays a pivotal role in maintaining optimal eye health, with emerging evidence highlighting the impact of dietary factors on various ocular conditions. Research suggests that a diet rich in antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, and omega-3 fatty acids can help protect against age-related macular degeneration (AMD), cataracts, and other vision-threatening diseases. Antioxidants such as lutein, zeaxanthin, vitamin C, and vitamin E, found abundantly in fruits, vegetables, and leafy greens, help neutralize free radicals and reduce oxidative stress in the eyes. Similarly, omega-3 fatty acids, predominantly found in fish, nuts, and seeds, have anti-inflammatory properties that may mitigate the progression of AMD and dry eye syndrome. Furthermore, nutrients like zinc and vitamin A are essential for maintaining the structural integrity of ocular tissues and supporting optimal visual function. By incorporating evidence-based dietary recommendations into public health initiatives and clinical practice, individuals can promote long-term eye health and potentially reduce the risk of vision loss associated with age-related ocular diseases.
