How to Support Your Eye Health


Regular eye exams are essential for catching any declines in vision as well as early diagnosis of eye conditions. However, most diagnoses often come with little to no guidance in how to prevent further decline and rarely is the possibility discussed of recovering without surgery.

New research suggests that eye cells are capable of regeneration, which means you DO have the opportunity to support your eye health through diet, lifestyle, and supplementation! To help, here are some of our tips and suggestions, but if you have any additional questions, please feel free to contact our office.


Diet is the foundation to overall health! The Weston A. Price Foundation Diet focuses on foods that provide additional Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Zinc and Copper. Here are some nutrient-dense sources of each:

Vitamin A

  • Pasture raised eggs, liver and other organ meats, grass-fed butter, fermented cod liver oil and wild-caught shellfish.
  • Many people tend to depend solely on plant sources for vitamin A. However, most of these plants only contain beta carotene, which is a Vitamin A precursor. If you’re unable to convert beta carotene to vitamin A due to a variety of health concerns (i.e. diabetic, sluggish thyroid, congested gallbladder, eating a low-fat diet, being a child/infant, working out heavily or drinking alcohol), it’s even more important for you to focus on the nutrient-dense items listed above. For a deeper explanation, read this article.

Vitamin C

  • Necessary for antioxidants.
  • Organic fresh fruits and dark leafy green veggies.

Vitamin E

  • Necessary for fat soluble vitamins and antioxidants.
  • Fatty nuts and seeds and wheat germ oil. (Be sure to soak your nuts and seeds to optimize digestion.)



  • Liver, organic leafy greens and wild-caught shellfish.

Move Your Body

  • Aerobic exercise improves circulation, which is key for delivering healing nutrients to the eyes and can increase levels of nerve growth factors to support cellular regeneration.

Get Outside

  • Natural sunlight is an important stimulant for eye health and can help local vitamin D production to support cellular health in the eye.

Reduce Blue Light Exposure

  • Cut down on your screen time, step away from all electronics 1-2 hours before bedtime, and wear blue light blocking glasses while watching television or working on the computer.
  • To learn more about the dangers of blue light, read this article and/or listen to this podcast.
