“Lutein and zeaxanthin — two nutrients found in egg yolks, spinach and other leafy green vegetables — may help prevent harmful short-wavelength light from reaching the macula (center of the eye’s retina). Recent study: People whose diets included high amounts of lutein and zeaxanthin were 35% less likely to develop age-related macular degeneration than people who consumed the least of these nutrients. Age-related macular degeneration affects 1.2 million Americans ages 65 and older and can lead to blindness.”
