You probably know that eating fish high in Omega 3 fish oils, like salmon and cod is good for your body's health and well being, but did you know it is good eye nutrition, too? People who eat diets high in Omega 3 fish oils show far fewer incidence of glaucoma, and there is evidence it can help prevent or improve the symptoms of other eye diseases, as well.
For example, Eskimo Native Americans, whose diet is rich in Omega 3 types of fish, have almost no incidences of glaucoma, and medical studies have found the same results. So, for good eye nutrition, eat the right foods, like salmon, cod, tuna, haddock and sardines, eat leafy green fruits and vegetables for lutein, and check with your doctor regarding other eye nutrition supplements.
