My mother always told me to eat carrots so I could see in the dark! Thankfully, stuffing yourself with Bugs Bunny’s favorite nibble isn’t the only thing you can do to help keep your eyesight in tip-top shape.Those amazing catechins have done it again. Because of them, green tea can have a positive impact on our vision too. Shown to be capable of penetrating the eye tissue, these powerful antioxidants are thought to be beneficial to the retina, that light sensing tissue at the back of the eye that helps form visual images.
Green tea may also protect the eye from glaucoma, as well as slow down the formation of cataracts, one of the leading causes of impaired vision in the US.
