Vitamins for Eye Health

Vitamins are an important part of maintaining your overall health, but they are also important for keeping your eyes in good shape.

Vitamin A strengthens the surface of the eye, mucous membranes, and skin making them more effective barriers to bacteria and viruses Vitamin C is found in citrus fruits like oranges and grapefruits, as well as kale, broccoli, and strawberries.
