There are plenty of obvious ways to keep your eyes and eyesight in top condition, but many people aren’t aware of the important role food plays in vision and eye health. So, for that reason, we’ve put together our expert list on the top foods that give your vision a bit of a boost and keep your eyes feeling good…

While it may not be original, there’s some truth behind this myth. No, it won’t help you to see in the dark, but adding carrots to your diet is an effective way to increase your Vitamin A intake. This promotes cornea health and reduces the chances of developing night blindness.

As with a lot of oily fish, mackerel is packed full of omega- 3 fatty acids, which work to protect eyes from macular degeneration. In addition, these acids help to keep your eyes moisturised and feeling fresh and healthy - an effective defence against dry eye and irritation.

Probably the easiest food on this list to introduce to your diet (if they aren’t already included), oranges are an ideal source of vitamin C for just about everyone, whether as an ingredient in a smoothie or as a quick snack on the go. As the eye’s natural fluid contains vitamin C, contact lens wearers will appreciate the addition of oranges, or indeed any citrus fruits, to their diet as they help your eyes to settle the lenses and to stay protected from the onset of cataracts.

Whether fried, scrambled, poached, boiled or served Benedict, eggs are just about the most versatile food on this list and offer a huge boost to your eye health. As a great source of lutein and zeaxanthin, eggs help to absorb blue light, which could otherwise prove dangerous to your retinas. On top of this, both nutrients contribute to helping your eyes contrast more effectively – improving your visual acuity.

Kale and other leafy greens

Another excellent food to increase your lutein and zeaxanthin intake, kale is a perfect addition to your diet if you’re on a health kick. These nutrients are also found in other leafy greens, such as spinach, and play a role in protecting your eyes from cataracts and macular degeneration.
