Eat more green leafy vegetables

Leafy green vegetables are extremely high in lutein and zeaxanthin.  They also contain beta-carotene, vitamin E, vitamin C, zinc and fiber.  This balance of eye nutrients makes them a staple in an Eyefoods diet. 
Lutein and zeaxanthin are absorbed better by the body when consumed with healthy fats.

  • Eat leafy green vegetables daily. 
  • Enjoy them both cooked and raw.
  • Eat a variety of leafy green vegetables ensuring to include kale at least once a week.
  • Add a small amount of healthy oil to your leafy greens.
