Carrots and apricots contain abundant beta-carotene (carotenoid), which can be converted into Vitamin A, preventing cell oxidation and keeping the eye healthy. Omega-3 is also a good nutrient, the following cold-water fish contain this nutrient: salmon, tuna, cod, sardine, haddock.

Lutein is another carotenoid, which can reduce the macular degeneration risk. The following foods contain lutein: spinach, broccoli, green peas, kale, romaine lettuce, egg yolks. Bilberry and Vitamin C are also important, as they can help to prevent cataracts and improve eyesight.
