"I've worn glasses for 45 years -- this is incredible! I see ordinary objects (trees, flowers, people, houses, cars, etc.) with crispness and sharpness unlike I ever experienced with glasses. My only regret is that I didn't have it done sooner. The results are nothing short of UNBELIEVABLE!"

Eye Healthy Eating Continues During Love Your Vision Month!

February 11, 2012 @ 07:00 AM -- by Sean Mulqueeny, O.D.

 

Eat Green Leafy Vegetables to Improve Your Eye Health

Nutritional research suggests that the more green, leafy vegetables you eat, the healthier your eyes and vision will be.  Broccoli is a great natural source of dietary fiber, vitamins C, E, K and A along with other antioxidants such as carotenoids (lutein, zeaxanthin), beta-carotene, manganese and zinc in beneficial amounts.

Antioxidants  lutein and zeaxanthin, found in the pigment that produces the dark green color in these types of vegetables, are also found in the retina of the eye.   Studies have shown that by eating a diet rich in lutein and zeaxanthin will increase the amount of pigment found in the macula –the central area of the retina.  More pigment means more protection against eye disease such as macular degeneration!

To maintain healthy retinas, try out this yummy broccoli recipe submitted by Erica Lashbrook, Patient Service Specialist at Mulqueeny Eye Centers!
