Four Benefits Of Salmon For Healthy Eyesight 

Our five senses, including sight, are crucial for our day-to-day life. Our eyes, the second most complex organ after the brain, are responsible for processing 36,000 pieces of information in just one hour. As our eyes work hard for us, we must care for them by consuming nutritious food. Salmon is a superfood that is great for vision. It is rich in omega-3 fatty acids, vitamin D, and niacin, all essential for maintaining good eye health. Continue reading to learn more about how salmon can help to improve your eyes. 

Omega-3’s From Salmon Help Support Your Retina 

Did you know that DHA, a type of omega-3 fat, plays a crucial role in maintaining the shape of disc membranes in photoreceptor cells? These cells are located in the retina of your eye and are responsible for converting light into electrical signals that your brain interprets as images. By maintaining these cells’ shape, DHA helps support your visual function, allowing you to see colors more vividly and navigate your environment more effectively, particularly in low-light conditions.

Omega-3’s Can Also Provide Dry Eye Relief 

If you spend a lot of time in front of a screen, use contacts, or drive frequently, you may experience dry eyes. This uncomfortable sensation occurs when the glands at the edge of the eyelids are blocked or not functioning correctly, which leads to insufficient oil secretion into the tears that coat the front of the eye. Omega-3 fatty acids can help prevent dryness by reducing inflammation and the risk of waxy buildup within the eyelid glands. This, in turn, reduces the likelihood of dry eyes and the need for artificial eye drops.

Omega-3s and Vitamin D Help Combat Macular Degeneration

As the number one cause of irreversible vision in people over sixty, macular degeneration results from the deterioration of the small central part of the retina, known as the macula. Omega-3 fatty acids from sources such as salmon can help ward off macular degeneration by shielding the eye’s light receptor cells from damage caused by sunlight and free radicals. At the same time, Vitamin D boasts anti-inflammatory and antiangiogenic properties that slow the growth of new blood vessels.

Reduce The Risk Of Cataracts

Cataracts are cloudy areas in the eye’s lens that can drive changes in eyesight and lead to fuzzy vision and sensitivity to glares.  The nucleus of the lens in the eye is especially sensitive to a lack of nutrients. Hence, evidence suggests that increasing niacin intake can protect the eye against nuclear cataracts. Salmon is exceptionally high in B-vitamin niacin and is one of the healthiest seafoods to help boost your vision.
