We've talked about all the food that contain healthy vitamins for your eyes, but never really focused on the vitamins themselves. All of these vitamins help your eyes in different ways, mostly preventative. 

Lutein

Lutein can lower the risk for macular degeneration by an average of 43 percent. 

Zinc

Zinc benefits tissues within the eyes because it plays a crucial role in proper cell division and cell growth, maintaining healthy circulation, balancing hormones that prevent autoimmune reactions, and controlling inflammatory cytokines that attack tissue. 

Zeaxanthin

Zeaxanthin helps protect the eye's tissue, lens and macula, which clears vision and prevents glare, light sensitivity or disorders like cataracts. 

Vitamin C

It helps protect your vision by fighting free radicals and helping you absorb more trace minerals and nutrients in general. 

Vitamin E

Vitamin E significantly lowers relative risk of cataracts and macular degeneration. 

Vitamin A

It has been shown to prevent loss of vision cause by degenerative conditions, such as cataracts and macular degeneration. 

Omega-3

Omega-3s stabilize blood sugar levels, which lowers inflammatory responses, helps fight eye damage caused by diabetes, improves circulation and helps stop cells from mutating.
