Nutrition and Eye Health

Eye health is an important part of your overall health and well-being. Don't be fooled into thinking that your eye health is not connected and affected by other aspects of health as well. Even your nutrition can drastically affect your eye health. At Exquisite Eye Care, serving Houston and the surrounding areas, we can help you better understand this connection.

Eyes and Nutrients

It is a terrible misconception to believe that your nutrition only affects your weight. Every single cell of your body is made up of the foods that you have put in your mouth. This means that you literally are made of what you eat. Each part of the body requires specific nutrients to operate at its best.

When these nutrients are present in abundance, the body can perform necessary functions without using up excess energy. When these nutrients are not present, though, the body must try to overcompensate in many ways, and this can become exhausting. The eyes require specific vitamins and nutrients to function at their best. Specifically, the eyes need an abundance of the following:

  • Vitamin A
  • Vitamin C
  • Lutein
  • Omega 3 Fatty Acids
  • Others

You can get these from your diet alone, but if you are concerned that you are not getting enough in your diet, you can also take supplements.

How Can an Optometrist Help?

The eye doctor will advise you on how you can improve your eyesight by improving your diet. If you are also dealing with health conditions such as diabetes, it will be even more important to take special care of your eye health.
