What do these Fruits and Vegetables have in common?

Maintaining good eye health isn’t just about attending your routine eye check-ups with your optometrist. Our BV doctors highly recommend integrating a healthy lifestyle and diet into your daily routine to keep your eyes and body healthy and happy!

There are many studies that suggest that foods rich in Vitamin C are also an amazing source of bioflavonoids, which means that these foods are packed with antioxidants!

What does this mean for your eye health?

The combination of Vitamin C and bioflavonoids in your long-term diet provides your body with powerful antioxidants that can help prevent cataracts and macular degeneration and also promote corneal health.

Foods Rich in Vitamin C:

Bell Peppers
Citrus Fruits
Green Leafy Vegetables

Improving your eye health is just a few delicious fruits and veggies away!

Remember to always seek the advice of your health care provider with any questions you may have regarding any medical condition or drug interactions.
