are exceptionally common. From cataracts, to macular
degeneration, to retinopathy, to glaucoma, to night
blindness, to simple focus and eye strain issues,
there are numerous eye problems .
discounted by many in the mainstream for decades,
scientific research confirms that there are
nutrients in foods that can help provide support for
eye health. For example, vitamins A, C, & E; taurine;
carotenoids lutein and zeaxanthin; fruits &
vegetables; selenium; and zinc all have been advised
for macular degeneration [2,3]. While vitamin C,
fruits, vegetables, flavonoids, mixed carotenoids,
selenium, and zinc all have been advised to help
prevent cataracts [1,2].
Complete Eye Health contains
the following Foods:
Acerola cherry ,
Malphighia glabra is
one of the most vitamin C dense Foods. Vitamin
C is "[o]ne of the most important antioxidants in
the eye" . "Malphigia glabra also
contains flavonoids. Flavonoids improve "night
vision and adaptation to dark. Improves visual
acuity and improves capillary integrity to reduce
hemorrhage in diabetic retinopathy" . Vitamin C
has been advised for corneal ulcers, macular
degeneration, and vascular retinopathy .
Bilberry berries of
contain high amounts of the flavonoid compound,
anthocyanosides. These compounds are believed to
accelerate the resynthesis of rhodopsin, a
chromoprotein in the retinal rods that stimulates
the retinal sensory endings as it is formed and
degraded. Anthocyanosides have been reported to
modulate retinal enzyme activity. The antioxidant
capacity of these bilberry anthocyanosides is
believed to slow retinal angiopathy that occurs in
age-related macular degeneration and diabetic
retinopathy [6-8]. The anthocyanosides in bilberries
help prevent the breakdown of vitamin C, which helps
it protect the eyes . "A group of Italian
researchers showed that a mixture of anthocyanidins
from bilberry plus vitamin E halted the progression
of lens clouding in a remarkable 97 percent of
people with early stage cataracts" . Bilberry
reportedly reduces eye strain, improves retinal
sensitivity in myopia, and enhances night vision as
well as macular recovery time, but is not
recommended during pregnancy or nursing [8,9].
Bovine tracheal tissue supplies
cartilage, which is a natural source of chondriotin
sulfate-A. Cartilage has specifically been
recommended "[t]o prevent or possibly halt the
progression of the condition" of diabetic

healthy eyes . Broccoli contains a variety of
phytochemicals such as chlorophyll, lutein, and
sulforaphane . Sulforaphane "protects the eyes
"from damage caused by UV light" that can lead to
macular degeneration" . Broccoli also contains a
plant form of vitamin K . Plant vitamin K has
been shown to have neuroprotective effects which aid
the retina . It appears that broccoli

long been used to help prevent night blindness (the
ancient Greeks knew this). "[A] decade-long Harvard
study indicat[ed] that by getting 50 milligrams of
carotenoids in every other day"significantly

disease, and cataracts" . Carrots supply
carotenoids such as betacarotene, a vitamin A
precursor"vitamin A has specifically been advised to
help those with dry eyes . Betacarotene has been
used to help reduce the the development of advanced
age-related macular degeneration .
liver oil supplies
essential fatty acids and naturally contains vitamin
A . "Dry eyes generally stem from a lack of
vitamin A" . Essential fatty acids and vitamin A
are recommended for dry eyes and sometimes floaters
Copper has been
studied as a nutrient to improve eye health .
Specifically, copper has been used to help reduce
the development of advanced age-related macular
degeneration  and now many ophthalmologists
recommend it. It may of interest to note that
bovine/goat tissues, tomatoes,Saccharomyces

a complete variety of ocular peptides. Eye tissue
extracts have "been found useful in nearly all
uncomplicated eye conditions, such as ordinary eye
strain and usual tissue changes associated with
failing vision and the aging process"glaucoma,
cataracts, iritis" . Eye tissue has also been
recommended for strabismus, far sightedness, and
near sightedness, but not eye infections ,
though it appears more effective for eye-strain and
aging-related eye complaints. Taurine, which is

cataract formation [3,4] Lutein esters have been
found to increase macular pigment . Lutein is
recommended for those with diabetic retinopathy .
The lutein in Complete

of B vitamins. Specifically, rice bran naturally
contains vitamins B-1, B-2, B-3, B-5, B-6, and B-8,
plus minerals . B complex vitamins are
recommended for eye health [1,5]. Rice bran also
supplies potassium which is recommended to help with

Antioxidants are often advised for eye health.
Furthermore, rosemary contains carnosic acid, which
promotes the production of the nerve growth factor

nerve tissue . Nerve growth factors may have a
retinal protective effect . Carnosic acid in
rosemary has similar antioxidant properties to

Tomato powder supplies
lycopene. "Lycopene is an acyclic isomer of
beta-carotene" . One nutritional study found that
the risk of cortical cataract was lowest in
individuals with the highest plasma levels of
lycopene . Lycopene in tomato powder appears to
be more bioavailable than that in fresh tomatoes,
and tomato powder has (by weight) 26-144 times more
lycopene than fresh tomatoes .
Vitamin E "A
deficiency of this important antioxidant may lead to

Interestingly, e ven the mainstream now recognizes
that nutrients from Foods,
and not isolated so-called nutritional supplements,
are what are best to help protect eyes from problems
such as macular degeneration [26,27].
