Vitamin D & Your Eyes

April 11, 2011, 5:10 PM by Kelli Grant

Vitamin D & Your Eyes
Vitamin D appears to be good for women's eyesight. A new study finds it could protect women from a leading cause of blindness.

A new study shows women under the age of 75 who have higher levels of Vitamin D in their blood are less like to develop macular degeneration later in life.

Macular degeneration is the leading cause of blindness in the U.S. It affects 1 in 10 Americans over 40 --some 8.5 million people. If you have it, you may notice vision changes like the need for bright light when reading, difficulty adapting to low light levels like when you enter a dimly lit restaurant and increasing blurriness of printed words.
 
A new study say a healthy dose of sun, the best way to get Vitamin D in the bloodstream, could protect your eyes. But just sun may still not be enough.

“The way to increase it to the levels that are protective, we need to eat properly. Eat Vitamin D rich foods,” Dr. Shantan Reddy said.

Those foods include leafy vegetables or fish like salmon and tuna. You can also find vitamin D fortified in things like milk, orange juice and some cereals.
