High temperatures are felt especially in cities and protecting your eyes from the sun's rays is a priority! In addition to wearing excellent sunglasses, it is necessary to adopt a correct diet that is able to adequately nourish the cornea and retina.
A balanced diet rich in carotenoids, lycopene, folic acid, vitamins A, C and E, omega-3 fatty acids, anthocyanosides and selenium will provide the eye tissues with the most important nutrients to protect them from the sun's rays, which in turn are the main cause of numerous pathologies such as conjunctivitis, cataracts, retinopathies and neoplasms.
- Carrots, pumpkins and apricots
Orange fruits and vegetables all contain beta-carotene, a substance that helps the retina work better when the sun goes down, making the rods, our photosensitive cells, work at their best. Carrots contain vitamin A (retinol) which is useful for protecting the eyes and improving vision. Apricots are a revitalizing panacea in case of tiredness and exhaustion. Pumpkin is very rich in vitamin A: as little as one cup of pumpkin pulp contains approximately double the daily intake of vitamin A recommended by nutritionists.
They are rich in antioxidants that protect the delicate capillaries of the retina, strengthening them and improving their elasticity. Thanks to vitamins A, C and zinc, they are excellent nutrients for the eyes.
Eaten raw they are a precious source of vitamin C that awakens the function of vitamin E, protecting the eye tissues and skin from the damage of the sun's ultraviolet rays.
In summer they must never be missing on our tables because they contain lycopene, a powerful antioxidant which, when cooked, is absorbed and spread more quickly. This molecule acts as a "sun filter" protecting all ocular tissues and especially the retina from ultraviolet rays.
In the summer they are the favorite dish, fresh and fast, and thanks to the presence of folic acid, they ensure a correct production of red blood cells thus ensuring good oxygenation to the cells.
The yolk is an excellent source of vitamin A, it can help in night vision. Eggs are also rich in lutein which helps in case of dry eyes and in some pathologies of the cornea and retina.

They are authentic reserves of vitamin E, an antioxidant that helps prevent various visual disturbances such as age-related macular degeneration or cataracts.
Main food rich in omega-3, essential molecules to ensure the elasticity of cell membranes and blood viscosity. Filling up on fish, especially blue fish, should be the rule in the kitchen. Omega 3s are really precious for our visual apparatus as they help our eyes to "work well", even in low light conditions.
