Nutrition for your eyes

Just 10 milligrams of lutein and two milligrams of zeaxanthin (found in one cup of leafy greens like kale, spinach and collard greens) a day can improve vision and reduce the risk of developing age-related macular degeneration (AMD), a condition that results in blurred vision.
