Maintaining good eye health isn't just about having an annual examination and looking after your contact lenses or spectacles. You can take a much more active role in protecting your eyes.
Nutrients such as Vitamin C, omega-3 oils and key plant molecules are so important that you really can eat your way to better vision, says leading eye researcher Professor Ian Grierson, Head of Ophthalmology at the University of Liverpool.
'Eye problems such as cataracts, glaucoma and macular degeneration, a leading cause of blindness, are all affected by what we eat,' says Prof Grierson. 'Adding a little more fruit and vegetables to your meals could dramatically reduce eye disease in future.'
