  • Citrus Berry Smoothie

Supercharge your eyes in the A.M. with this smoothie. Fresh berries, orange juice, and toasted wheat germ fill you with vitamins E and C -- nutrients that may help protect against AMD.

This meal-in-a-glass smoothie is bursting with berries and orange juice, healthful sources of carbohydrate and powerful antioxidants. Getting plenty of antioxidant-rich foods makes sense for active people, since free radicals are produced any time the body’s cells process oxygen.

  • Strawberry-Orange Muffins

These muffins taste as good as those at your corner bakery's, but with a lot fewer calories and a lot more vitamin C. Makes them ideal for your eyes and your pants size.

We love the combination of strawberry and orange in this sweet breakfast muffin with a streusel topping. For a less conventional (but equally delicious) twist, try the basil variation. The hint of basil complements the fruity berries wonderfully.

  • Spinach, Avocado, and Mango Salad


Three simple, delicious main ingredients in this salad give your eyes a lineup of needed nutrients, including lutein, zeaxanthin, and vitamin C. 

  • Curried Carrot Soup


It's no secret that carrots are good for your eyes. But they go down a lot easier in a light, creamy-tasting soup like this one.

  • Rainbow Chopped Salad

Skip the wimpy salad fillers. This salad gets right down to business with nothing but good stuff for your eyes, including antioxidant-rich carrots, bell peppers, and broccoli.

  • Oven Sweet Potato Fries

Making fries out of beta-carotene-rich sweet potatoes and baking them in the oven with a drizzle of olive oil makes this favorite food a best bet for your eyes and your waistline. 

  • Cheesy Popcorn

Here's a snack switcheroo your eyes will approve of whole-grain popcorn instead of potato chips. And something your taste buds will approve of freshly grated parmesan cheese.

Some foods are good for eyes but are unhealthy for you if you are suffering from any diseases like asthma, diabetes etc. Therefore, you need a thing which work for every diseases as well as for poor eye vision. It is Acai Berry Juice.
