How To Keep Your Eyes Healthy This Thanksgiving

Eye Care Services Westborough MAWhen it comes time to celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday, it can either seem like you love the holiday or you could leave it, but either way, you have to celebrate it with friends and family. If you really want to get the most out of your holiday feast, then this article is right up your alley. This article will take a closer look at a few foods that you should keep your eye on this Thanksgiving.

Leafy Greens

Even though you may want to indulge in a few more Thanksgiving casseroles rather than fresh foods, do your body and vision a favor and eat some leafy greens. For instance, try making a big spinach or kale salad. Leafy greens are chock full of carotenoids which are really great for supporting your vision health.

Carrots

Maple glazed carrots are bound to be a big hit on your Thanksgiving table. And, not only are carrots so delicious for you to eat, but they are also full of carotenoids like leafy greens which as previously mentioned can do wonders for your eyesight.

Sweet Potatoes

Thanksgiving wouldn’t be Thanksgiving unless you had some sweet potatoes as part of your big spread. Even though traditional toppings like brown sugar and marshmallows may not necessarily be healthy for you, sweet potatoes themselves certainly are good for your eyesight. Sweet potatoes contain a lot of Vitamin A which has been known to help reduce age-related vision conditions like cataracts and glaucoma.

In addition to ensuring that you are eating well over Thanksgiving, make sure that you come into our Keamy Eye and Laser Centre office for regular vision checks. To schedule your next eye exam, contact our Westborough office today and contact us at 508-836-8733.
