Vitamins and Nutrition for your Eyes

Nutrition plays an important role in maintaining the health of your eyes. Eating a healthy diet in Joplin, MO is an extremely important part of the daily lifestyle choices you make for your overall well-being. Foods that you eat and the dietary supplements you take affect your overall health and may affect the health of your eyes. Eating the right foods won’t stop the aging process of our eyes, but it may help us achieve better eye health longer.

What Type of Foods Promote Healthy Eyes?Healthy Green Broccoli Kale Vegetables

A healthy diet for your eyes should include plenty of colorful fruits and vegetables. Foods such as carrots, tomatoes, bell peppers, strawberries, pumpkin, corn and cantaloupe supply vitamins A and C, and carotenoids: the compounds that give these fruits and vegetables their yellow, orange, and red pigments. These are thought to help decrease the risk of many eye diseases. These foods also help because they provide beta carotene, vitamins C and E, as well as zinc. Orange yellow fruits and vegetables also supply zeaxanthin and lutein and as in the yolks of eggs.

Leafy Greens such as spinach, kale, and collard greens, to name just a few, are packed with zeaxanthin and lutein, important pigments that are found in the macula of the eye. Broccoli, peas, and avocados are also a good supply of this powerful antioxidant duo. Fish (such as salmon, halibut, and tuna), walnuts, and flax seeds will all supply Omega-3 fatty acids which are important to overall health and eye health. One study of women who consumed seafood 2 to 4 times a week showed a decrease in their risk of occasional dry eyes by 45%. These same Omega-3 fatty acids may work just as well for men. A diet containing foods with a low glycemic index (GI) may also be beneficial to maintaining eye health. Swap refined carbohydrates for quinoa, brown rice, whole oats, whole-wheat bread, and pasta. The vitamins E, zinc, and niacin found in whole grains also help promote overall eye health. Kidney beans, black-eyed peas, and lentils are sources of bioflavonoids and zinc — thought to help support retinal health.

To Our Patient Family,

Based on federal and state recommendations, many offices have voluntarily moved to a temporary model of care where they are reducing or eliminating routine vision care, particularly for at-risk populations, while still allowing urgent care for their patients.

After careful consideration we have made the decision to follow these recommendations until April 3rd, at which time we will re-evaluate.

So what does that mean?

To minimize the spread of COVID-19 our physical office will be temporarily closed to routine vision appointments.  We will have both Doctors and staff in the office Tuesday – Thursday from 9:00 am – 5:00 pm to answer questions, place contact lens orders and schedule urgent/emergency patients by phone.

We are offering to extend contact lens prescriptions if necessary, to make sure our patients have enough supply until our quarantine lifts.

Both Dr. David and Dr. Jeff are still available for red eyes, sudden vision changes, injuries, and other urgent issues for both new and established patients.  Please feel free to call our office between the hours of 9:00 am and 5:00 pm Tuesday – Thursday.

Our doctors will be providing Tele-health for your convenience and extended care.  We will also be offering extended services for our vision therapy patients.

If you have glasses ordered or glasses that are ready for pick up, we ask that you call ahead and schedule a time to pick those up. Once you have arrived, call the office for check-in, and we will deliver and adjust your glasses at your car.  Contacts and vitamins that are available for pickup will follow same check-in process.

As always, we genuinely care for our patients and want the very best for each of you.  If you need us, or have questions about your specific situations; please feel free to call the office.  This plan of action could change due to federal or state guidelines and recommendations.  Please monitor our Facebook page for updates.

We appreciate your understanding in this matter.


Dr. David Coleman & Dr. Jeff Coleman
