Eat foods that are high in vitamin C. Foods that contain vitamin C include broccoli, oranges, strawberries, tomatoes, cantaloupe, papaya and green peppers.
Go “green” nutritionally to reduce your risk of cataracts, and perhaps to stop existing cataracts from worsening. Green vegetables, especially dark leafy greens like spinach, kale, turnip greens and romaine lettuce, are high in nutrients called lutein and zeaxanthin.
Boost your levels of carotenoids, the nutrient that gives fruits and vegetables an orange or red hue. Carrots, squash, peaches, tomatoes and other orange vegetables and fruits provide you with carotenoids.
Ask your doctor about taking vitamin supplements if you have an early-stage cataract. Getting high enough levels of antioxidant vitamins C, E and A to make a difference in your eye health may be difficult through diet alone. Supplements in addition to a healthy diet might be able to turn around your eye health.
