We are constantly using our eyes – work, school, watching T.V., reading a book… When we are relaxing we are still using our eyes. So take time to improve your habits to healthy eyes. Eat foods that are good for your eyes…Important vitamins, minerals & antioxidants found in foods can strengthen your eyesight. To mention a few…
- Beta-carotene, lutein & lycopene found in carrots help to protect the eyes from sun damage & UVB radiation.
