Eye health is a serious concern for people of all ages. There are several nutrients that are key to protecting eye health and preventing problems. Vitamins C and E are potent antioxidants that have a protective benefit for eye health. Beta-carotene (vitamin A) is crucial for night vision and Omega-3 fatty acids can help protect the eyes from macular degeneration and dry eye syndrome. Other nutrients such as zeaxanthin, selenium, lutein and folic acid also play a major protective role in eye health.
