Eye health deteriorates as you age. However, according to experts, some dietary changes will help preserve vision for a long time.

The famous seasonal vegetable, pumpkin, can help.

According to ophthalmologist Alistair Lockwood, an eye surgeon, pumpkin helps reduce the risk of age-related macular degeneration (AMD), which is common in people in their 50s and 60s who suffer from cataracts.

Why is pumpkin good for the eyes? Because of the high amounts of vitamins C and A and zinc in it.

He said: “Vitamin C slows the progression of AMD and reduces the risk of developing cataracts. Vitamin A protects the cornea and improves night vision, while zinc helps transport vitamin A from the liver to the retina and produces melanin that protects the eyes.

Pumpkin also contains lutein and zeaxanthin. These are antioxidants that protect the eyes by filtering out high-wavelength light waves and reducing the risk of chronic eye disease.
