Throughout the day, our eyes are active. However, the amount of time we spend in front of computers can induce stress and headaches and impede our everyday tasks. A nutritionist, Loveneet Batra, took to Instagram to discuss some nutrients that can help enhance eye health. She captions her post, “ Puffy eyes, swollen under eyes; dark circles are only a few downsides of excess screen time,” and gives tips to take care of our eyes.
Vitamin A is a fat-soluble vitamin that, according to the dietitian, helps lower the risk of age-related macular degeneration, a common eye ailment. It also shields the eye from the harmful effects of sunshine. Beta carotene, an organic pigment found in vegetables, is also essential for keeping the cornea bright and healthy.
Vitamin C is important for maintaining the body’s appropriate balance of antioxidants and free radicals, as well as keeping eye cells healthy. It is an important factor in the production of collagen, which is required to give structure to the cornea and sclera, which make up the eyeball’s outer layer.
Her caption read, “Omega 3 is a very important fatty acid that helps save the eye from drying up and from discomfort.”
Lutein and Zeaxanthin
They are useful for filtering out hazardous high-energy blue wavelengths. According to the specialist, they also protect the eye from aging.
