Can your diet really impact your eyesight? Absolutely! Just like any part of your body, the health of your eyes correlates to the foods you eat and is largely dependent on your lifestyle. MyEyeDr.’s Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Artis Beatty and Optometrist, Dr. Amanda Steele share an eye healthy recipe that promote the best benefits for your vision.

This shrimp foil pack is full of numerous eye healthy vitamins. Zucchini squash is packed with carotenoids and a one-cup serving packs nearly half of your daily dose of vitamin C. Zucchini also boasts vitamin A and antioxidants while shrimp includes astaxanthin which aids in maintaining good eye health, including protecting the retina against oxidative damage.
