Q&A with Dr. F
Dr. Fraser Answers Your Eyecare Questions
I have always heard that carrots are good for eye health; is this true and should I make sure my kids are eating carrots?
The short answers to the above questions are YES and YES. However, we need to dig a little deeper and realize that while carrots are good for overall eye and retinal health, they are not the only food we should be making sure are kids are snacking on! We have known for quite some time that carrots are packed full of beta-carotene which serves a vital role in eye health. Beta-carotene can also be found in mangoes, papayas, sweet potatoes, kale, spinach, and collard greens (just to name a few.) More recent research also states that a diet high in lutein, zeaxanthin, Vitamin C, Vitamin E, and Zinc is essential to retinal health. For our adult patients who fear they may not be getting adequate amounts of the nutrients listed above we will recommend a specific eye vitamin to supplement their diet. In children, we like to focus on a well-balanced diet of foods to provide the same vitamins and nutrients. So yes, please continue to give your children carrots—but don’t stop there. Add in some spinach, kale, collard greens, almonds and oranges just to name a few! Check out our eye healthy recipes to give you more ideas!
