Vitamins A, C and E are considered beneficial to eye health, according to WebMD. Omega-3 fatty acids, folic acid and minerals such as zinc, selenium and lutein are also important to eye health.
Contrary to popular belief, eating carrots won't actually improve your vision, according to CooperVision. However, maintaining a diet rich in vitamin A helps maintain eye health. The most effective way to maintain eye health is to eat a diverse diet that naturally contains micronutrients that are important to eye health. Kiwis, carrots, kale, dried apricots and other natural foods are rich in many of these micronutrients and contribute to a healthy lifestyle.
