Carrots are rich in beta carotene, which is then converted by the body into Vitamin A. Deficiencies in vitamin A are the leading causes of blindness in the developing world. Lack of vitamin A can also lead to many other health issues. Carrots also contain lutein, which is an important antioxidant. Foods rich in Lutein are known to increase the density of pigment in the macula. As pigment density increases, the retina is protected more and the risk for macular degeneration decreases.

Peaches also contain beta carotene and are an antioxidant that benefits eye health, along with vitamins A and C. Regular consumption of peaches can improve your eye health by increasing blood circulation throughout your body. The beta carotene also nourishes and protects the retinas in your eyes from free radical damage, as well as helping to prevent cataracts and age-related macular degeneration.

Lemons are rich in Vitamin C, an essential antioxidant that can protect your eyes from free radical damage.

Apples can help to ease some of the effects of poor eyesight. They contain a considerable amount of both vitamin A & C, which can help to treat night blindness. They also can strengthen eyes and can help to prevent eyesight from worsening.

Beet greens are rich in a powerful antioxidant called lutein, which protects eyes from age related macular degeneration and cataracts. Beet greens have powerful phytochemicals that have been shown in studies to benefit the health of our eyes.
