Generally speaking, eating plenty of foods high in antioxidants is a good overall strategy for improving eye health. Raw vegetables that are rich in antioxidants and various carotenoids (think bright yellow, orange, and red pigments) will help protect and support eyesight.

Supplementally, one of the the most powerful antioxidants known to man that has shown to support excellent eye health is astaxanthin. This “King of Carotenoids” has exponentially more antioxidants than even the most popular antioxidant supplements (like CoQ10, resveratrol, and glutathione), and is a significant addition to nourishing the eyes.
