Celebrate #WorldSightDay by nourishing your eyes! In Malaysia, where eye health is a growing concern, it's important to note that over 1 million Malaysians suffer from vision impairment, and the numbers are rising. Our Kaisar Pharmacists says - your vision is precious, and these nutrients are key to maintaining optimal eye health:
Lutein & Zeaxanthin
These powerful antioxidants protect your eyes from harmful light. Find them in leafy greens like spinach and peas, as well as corn and eggs.
Zinc helps maintain the health of your retinas. You can get your dose from nuts, seeds, and whole grains.
Vitamin A supports good vision, especially in low light. Carrots, sweet potatoes, and apricots are packed with this nutrient.
Vitamin B1 (Thiamine)
Thiamine helps prevent eye conditions like cataracts. You'll find it in whole grains, lean meats, and beans.
Vitamin C is an eye health superstar, protecting against age-related macular degeneration. Oranges, strawberries, and bell peppers are rich sources.
Vitamin E helps reduce the risk of cataracts. Nuts, seeds, and vegetable oils are great sources.
Omega-3 Fatty Acids
Fish like salmon and tuna are packed with omega-3s that support eye health. These fatty acids can reduce the risk of dry eyes and other conditions.
Let's take action to protect our vision and spread awareness about the importance of eye health. Your future self will thank you for it!
