Try sticking to a diet high in antioxidants, beta-carotene, and vitamins. All off these helpful nutrients can be found in foods you might already eat on a daily basis. Cranberries, broccoli and peppers can help reduce the risk for certain eye conditions like glaucoma, cataracts, and macular degeneration.

The easiest way to know if you are eating an eye-conscious food is generally based on the color. The more colorful the food the better! Colorful foods can signify a high nutrient content. Try choosing foods like spinach, squash or almonds to add to your holiday plate.

This year,  head for the fruit and veggie tray and give your eyesight a healthy boost. Visit one of Dr. Tavel’s board-certified optometrists with more questions about an eye-conscious diet.
