It is easy to take our eyes for granted and, if you’ll pardon the terrible pun, not see the bigger picture. It is for this reason that the National Eye Care Awareness Month sprang into being a few years ago: the drive seeks to improve awareness of the importance of maintaining good vision right through your life.

It is easy to see why such a drive is needed, not least due to the general apathy around eye health but also due to the effects on our vision of hours spent on smartphones, desktop computers, tablets and in front of the television.

Screen-time has become an almost mandatory element of modern living, particularly for those working white-collar office jobs, so the need for the initiative has never been higher.

One of the best ways to protect your eyes and vision is via your daily diet. In this article, we will tell you about the best foods and nutrients for eye health.

You might be surprised to learn that certain nutrients can prevent or delay eye-related troubles in later life, so it pays to know what they are to ensure you’re getting enough.
