You use your eyes every single day. In fact, you’re using them right now as you read this blog! Your eyesight is one of your most important senses, as 80 percent of what you perceive comes through your sense of sight.

If you proactively consume a healthy diet that’s rich in nutrients, such as omega-3 fatty acids, vitamins A and C and zinc, you can lower your risk of prevalent eye conditions.
