Best Vegetables for Your Eye Health

You've likely heard that carrots are a great source of beta carotene, but did you know that there are other eye nutrients that will help improve your vision health?

Green vegetables are an excellent source of lutein, zeaxanthin, and Vitamin C to boost your vision health.  Darker shades of green, leafy vegetables will typically have more nutrients than lighter shades of green. Vegetables with higher levels of lutein and zeaxanthin include:  

  • broccoli
  • brussels sprouts
  • celery 
  • collards
  • green beans
  • kale
  • leaf lettuce
  • peas
  • spinach

If it's not easy eating green, there are other vegetables that have high levels of lutein and zeaxanthin as well as Vitamin C:

  • carrots
  • chili peppers
  • corn
  • leeks
  • squash
  • sweet peppers
  • sweet potatoes
  • tomatoes
  • yams

Another great way to get all of these important nutrients as well as Vitamin E, zinc, and copper is to take a vision supplement. Focus Select is a supplement that contains the nutrients that are important for your vision health.
