New Review Finds That Many Americans Over Age 50 are Not Getting Enough of Key Nutrients in Their Daily Diet to Support Their Eye Health
Date:6/20/2013

utein (66 percent) and zeaxanthin (nearly 90 percent). Diet is the best way to get these specific nutrients, but for adults who don't get the nutrients needed through diet alone, nutritional supplementation is warranted.  

"Many Americans don't consume enough of these eye healthy foods in their daily diets, even though diet is the best way to receive these nutrients," said Michael J. Cooney, M.D., MBA, retina specialist at the Vitreous Retina Macula Consultants. "That's why I recommend an eye vitamin and mineral supplement, such as Ocuvite®1 to help fill the gap when diet alone does not provide the recommended levels."*

While the research found that many Americans are not getting optimal amounts of the eight identified nutrients that may support eye health through their diet, there are many common foods that contain these vital nutrients and antioxidants. Registered dietitian Keri Gans recommends incorporating several of these foods into the daily diet to increase the levels of these vital eye nutrients.

"There are several foods adults can easily add to make their diets more 'eye-friendly,'" said Gans. "For example, make a salad with kale or spinach which are both packed with lutein and zeaxanthin. Or, add berries to yogurt in the morning for extra vitamin C."

Other foods to look for include:

  • Vitamin C: citrus fruits, berries, tomatoes and broccoli
  • Vitamin E: vegetable oils, wheat germ, nuts and legumes
  • Zinc: oysters, beef and other meats, nuts, legumes and dairy from plant sources of zinc
  • Lutein and zeaxanthin: kale, spinach, broccoli, peas, corn, colored bell peppers, goji berries and brussel sprouts
  • Omega-3 fatty acids: fish oils from cold water fish like salmon or tuna
  • Beta-Carotene: carrots, pumpkin, sweet potato and spinach
