Which vegetables are good for our eyes?

I heard that we can grow gardens that are "good for our eyes." I know that carrots are eye-healthy. What other vegetables are good for our eyes?

Yes, carrots are good for maintaining our night vision. Leafy greens such as kale, collard greens and spinach, are among the most eye-healthy foods. Orange bell peppers, corn and peas also provide food for our eyes. May also is Healthy Vision Month,
so take steps to care for your eyes. Enjoy a variety of colorful vegetables for good overall health and especially eye health.
