Can consuming more lutein, Vit A and Vit D helps to protect the eyes and delay the onset of myopia?

2y ago

Lutein, Vitamin A, Vitamin D, antioxidants and beta carotene are nutrients for healthy eyes. In general, green leafy vegetables, fruits of various colours, eggs and fish are ingredients to healthy eyes. A balanced diet is crucial for keeping our eyes heathy. However this doesn’t equate to perfect eye sight and can not delay or reverse of one’s myopia. Eye protection from harmful rays like UV and blue light is equally important too.
