Antioxidants help prevent oxidative damage to ocular tissues like that seen in age-related macular degeneration and cataracts. The important antioxidants for the maintenance of ocular health and prevention of ocular disease are:
Vitamins A,C, E, lutein and zeaxanthin, selenium, zinc and CoQ10
Eat a diet filled with a variety of brightly colored fruits and vegetables. Getting these antioxidants from food, versus only from supplements or vitamins, allows your body to take advantage of the synergy of the nutrients in foods.
