Carrots contain high concentration of vitamin A, which protects the eyes and allows them to function efficiently. Lack of vitamin A can lead to vision problems including glaucoma, night blindness and short sightedness that sometimes can be serious.

Citrus fruits are rich in vitamin C, which protect your eyes from inflammatory disorders, infections, early formation of cataracts, age-related macular degeneration and corneal ulcers.

Green vegetables are one of the best foods for the eyes as they are rich in lutein and zeaxanthin, known as nutrients shown to reduce macular deterioration and cataracts, two age-related eye problems.

Vitamin A deficiency is one of the major causes of childhood blindness in developing nations. Papaya contains beta-carotene, which keeps your eyes healthy.
