As we age, taking good care of our eyes becomes more important. With technology all around us at our fingertips, our screentime definitely takes a toll on our eyes.

While there are some factors that can have an effect on our vision that are beyond our control, there are things we can do to potentially lower our risk of problems! One great method is through dietary changes.


Vitamin A is the nutrient famous for eye health. According to the Eye Clinic London, studies have proven that consumption of vitamin A rich foods such as dragon fruit, can improve eyesight and prevent various types of eye related issues.

Dragon fruit is native to Southern Mexico and other Central American countries including Guatemala, Costa Rica, and El Salvador. Also known as pitaya or strawberry pear, dragon fruit's name stems from its scaly and spiked exterior!


This exotic fruit is full of vitamin A, vitamin C, B1, B12, and carotene.

Vitamins A, C, and E are proven to provide nourishment and protection for the cornea.


Dragon fruit has recently become extremely popular due to its many health benefits.

This nutrient packed fruit contains antioxidant activity that may also protect inflammatory disorders including gout and arthritis, according to research that was published in the International Journal of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences.
