Re:Vision are focused on making excellence in eye care accessible to everyone who needs it, and as well as their range of services, they also know that eating ‘super foods’ will keep your eyes in optimal health. It is fairly obvious that foods that are good for your eyes, are usually those that are good for your overall health.

We probably all know the traditional eye foods such as carrots, broccoli and spinach, but Goji berries, Kiwi fruit, raw cacao and kale are all right up there for good eye health. For example, kale is an excellent superfood for your eyes. It is a source of Vitamins A,B6 and C. It's also a great source of calcium, fiber and iron, and has a nutritional edge over spinach. For example, it's calcium has a higher absorption rate. This is because it contains a minimal amount of Oxalic Acid, a substance that hinders absorption.

Kale is fortified with important eye nutrients such as Lutein and Zeaxanthin, and as such it offers powerful protection from degenerative eye conditions such as Macula Degeneration and Cataracts. Its nutritional value in terms of being a superior source of Vitamin K places it on a higher grade level than vegetables such as broccoli, spinach and Swiss chard.

Delicious Kiwi fruits are also classified as one of the best foods for your eyes. Surprisingly, they have a higher nutritional value than many other common fruits. Finally, what makes cacao a nutritional superfood is that it's antioxidant content surpasses that of red wine 14 times and green tea 21 times. If you are concerned about stress as you age, it offers powerful protection from eye conditions such as Macula Degeneration and Cataracts.
