Improve your eye's health by adding these four foods to your diet!

• Cold water fish
Sardines, cod, tuna and mackerel are an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids, which help lubricate the eyes and improve vision.

• Eggs
Eggs contain xanthophylls, an antioxidant that can help prevent macular degeneration, a progressive deterioration of the eye.

• Red wine
The elixir of the gods contains anthocyanins, an antioxidant that helps improve blood circulation in the eyes and reduces the risk of cataracts.

• Garlic
The pungent root is rich in sulfur that helps stimulate the production of the amino acid glutathione and helps protect against glaucoma.
