The eye is a sensory organ fragile and complex , responsible for our vision. It is protected by structures such as eyelids , eyelashes where the lacrimal glands , which help prevent any external aggression (too intense light, dust, impurities, etc.) and to ensure optimal lubrication . When a foreign body enters the eye, a whole system is activated. Just like a physical barrier , the eyelids close reflexively to push away the foreign body . Then, the eyelashes of the lower and upper eyelids will come scan the surface of the eye . When the eyelids are closed, they allow retain moisture in the eye and when blinking, the tears are spread and provide the nutrients and the necessary oxygen to the cornea.

Despite this, the number of external attacks cannot be counted on the fingers of one hand. Between pollution, glare, the sun, screens, tobacco, obesity, high cholesterol and even diabetes, our eyes are put to the test . Indeed, all these factors can be the cause of a premature visual degeneration , which must be prevented.

How to prevent risks?

To preserve the health of your eyes and protect yourself from early ocular degeneration, it is essential to adopt a certain number of good habits as reduce screen brightness , wear anti-blue light glasses or remain faithful to sunglasses .

Preserving your eyes through your diet

This is a general principle that you are no doubt familiar with: it is essential to have A balanced diet . But did you know that some vitamins And minerals are better able to protect your eyesight?

At the top of the list we find the vitamin A and its protective functions for your eyes.

Hence the importance of favoring foods rich in vitamin A for good protect your eyes .

Vitamin A exists in the form of carotenoids and of retinol . Retinol is only present in animal products (liver, fish liver oil, dairy products and butter) while carotenoids and provitamin A are present in plants (carrots, apricots, etc.) and in certain products. animals (butter, eggs, etc.). Vitamin A is therefore essential in preventive eye care, but it is not the only one! We also find the vitamin C and E , zinc and the Omega 3 . These vitamins are anti-oxidants , slow down cellular aging and allow prevent eye diseases age-related diseases such as Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD) or cataracts.

THE omega-3 , for their part, makes lower LDL level (bad cholesterol) and therefore prevent the formation of atherosclerotic plaques in the capillaries by protecting the small vessels that irrigate your eyes. An atheroma is a deposit caused by the accumulation of different elements (fat, blood, fibrous tissue, lime deposit) on part of the internal wall of blood vessels. Its diameter decreases, which can hinder blood circulation. Being polyunsaturated fatty acids, omega-3s also contribute to moisturize the eye and to prevent dry eyes . They are found in the Pisces like salmon or mackerel and also in vegetal oils rapeseed, flax or walnut type.

We also too often forget the lutein and the zeaxanthin who are antioxidant pigments belonging to the carotenoid family. They are not naturally synthesized by humans, which is why we can consume them through dark green vegetables such as spinach or broccoli. At Poméol, the SELF-BRONZANT® food supplement to tan without sun and food supplement BELLE DE JOUR NUTRITION PEAU® anti-wrinkle and anti-aging contain between 6 to 10mg of lutein And 1mg of zeaxanthin .
