    Blueberries: Blueberries contain anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and collagen-stabilizing properties, thus making it the best food for healthy eyes. Consuming blueberries would strengthen the blood vessels present in the back of the eyes, thus improving the vision. Plus, blueberries contain anthocyanin that reduces the blood pressure & inflammation as well as prevents blockage in the arteries that supply oxygen to the retina.

    Spinach: As kids, we might have seen Popeye the sailor man show where the titular character would gobble a can of spinach, get his muscles pumped up, and beat the blue out of the bad guys. But spinach does more than that. Spinach is said to be full of nutrients such as lutein, zeaxanthin, and vitamin A that are good for our eyes. For example, lutein shields our eyes against UV rays and zeaxanthin helps in visual development.

    Carrots: They are said to contain beta-carotene that gets broken down into vitamin A by our bodies. Vitamin A not only helps in improving the vision but also assists in the production of rod & cone cells that allow us to see colors. Consuming great amounts of beta-carotene reduces the risk of cataracts, glaucoma, macular degeneration, & several other eye diseases.

    Egg yolks: Egg yolks also contain lutein & zeaxanthin that are also found in spinach & other leafy vegetables. The high level of fat content in the yolks helps your body to absorb all the antioxidants. As per studies, eating an egg daily for a week can increase the levels of zeaxanthin & lutein by 40% and 28%, respectively. Also, egg yolks are rich in vitamin D that prevents the occurrence of macular degeneration.
