Consume a healthy diet
For good eye health, it is important to consume a healthy diet. Make sure your diet comprises essential nutrients like lutein, zinc, vitamin C, and omega-3 fatty acids.
A good meal also helps to ward off other health conditions. These include obesity and diabetes that are also the cause of a number of eye conditions. Eat a lot of green leafy vegetables, oily fish, eggs, beans, nuts, oysters, and fruits.
