Q&A with Dr. Bomse
Dr. Bomse Answers Your Eyecare Questions
Q: Are carrots good for your eyes?
Carrots cannot restore vision or make physical changes to the eye. However, carrots are beneficial for overall vision health. Carrots are rich in beta-carotene and lutein, which help delay/decrease cataracts and macular degeneration. So, keep eating those carrots! Eating healthy is necessary for a strong body, but certain foods can help keep eyes healthy too. The antioxidants in coffee are beneficial to eye health as well as eggs, leafy greens, berries, and cold-water fish such as salmon. The omega-3 fatty acids in salmon help prevent dry eyes and keep the retina healthy.
