How to improve impaired vision

Some years ago bad vision was only a problem of elderly people. Nowadays, young people wearing glasses are not a surprise anymore. Long working hours at the computer and evenings spent watching TV damages our eyes really badly. Unfortunately, it is quite difficult to change this kind of lifestyle but what we can do is to compensate our eyes somehow.

First of all you have to regulate your lifestyle. Make sure you exercise and spend more time outdoors. But that is not all.

If you see poorly in low-light

from the very young age we know that the best medicine to our eyes is blueberries. They have positive effect on ocular blood flow and slows down cataract and retinal degeneration. Blueberries contain rhodopsin – a red pigment that is necessary for normal cells in the retina of the eye to function properly. This ensures good vision at low-light.

Poor vision in the dark also develops because of the lack of vitamin A. You can find vitamin A in the same blueberries, carrots, black currants, spinach and other green vegetables, also in butter, liver and fish oil.

Blurred vision

Blurred vision is caused by a lack of lutein. Lutein accumulates in the retina of the eye and protects it from degeneration and harmful UV rays, improves blood circulation and has antioxidant properties. With aging, reserves of lutein in the body decrease resulting blurred vision. The main sources of lutein are green leafy vegetables, dark colored fruits and egg yolks.

You should get 800 micrograms or vitamin A and 6 milligrams of lutein daily. To get this much of these two substances, you have to eat food that not only have lutein and vitamin A but also products that contain carotenoids and antioxidants. Eat a handful of blueberries, cooks something with spinach and carrots, don’t forget fruits.
