Important nutrients to help support healthy eyes include: Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin E and Zinc. Overall, it is best to focus on dark leafy greens such as spinach and kale, yellow and orange fruits and vegetables, egg yolks and fish such as tuna, salmon and halibut. These vitamins may help slow down the progression of cataracts and age-related macular degeneration (AMD)—a disease that results in vision loss in the macula, where the eye controls central vision.
