The health of your vision requires a certain input of vitamins and minerals so it can function normally. Sometimes, common actions like spending a lot of time in front of the computer, stress, or even certain weight loss diets cause you to lose not only visual acuity little by little, but also to contract certain diseases associated with vision that will take their toll because of the mere fact of not taking care of your nutrition.
For example, following a proper diet with essential vitamins is enough to allow you to regenerate your ocular tissue. These are simple components that you will often find in fruits and vegetables. Let’s do a small review.
Vitamins that Care for Your Vision

Carrots, spinach, milk, butter, egg yolks…
It is active in all of your fresh vegetables and provides great benefits and antioxidant effects, as well as folic acid, iron… It is in oranges, lemons, grapefruit, strawberries, raspberries…
