Eat healthy for you and your eyes

For most people, healthy eating means having a balanced diet that includes lots of fruit vegetables and whole grains plus drinking water and other fluids. For people with uveitis, good nutrition can help you attain and maintain a healthy weight and energy level. Check out Canada’s Food Guide for more information.

Examples of eye healthy foods:

  • Foods rich in foods rich in lutein, zeaxanthin, and vitamin C, such as orange peppers

  • Kiwi is a good fruit source of vitamin C. Other excellent fruit sources of vitamin C include raspberries, papayas, red, white and black currants and litchis.

  • Turkey breast and lean beef (contain large amounts of zinc and vitamin E)

  • Fish with a lot of omega-3 fatty acids

  • Nuts and seeds 

Tip:

Mix 1 tablespoon of ground flax seed or wheat germ into your daily diet for a boost of eye nutrients.
