Guide to Choosing Nutritional Supplements for Vision


Several vitamins, minerals, and phytochemicals have been shown in some research to be associated with reduced risk of cataracts and macular degeneration, as well as generally support healthy vision. When you shop for a daily dietary supplement, look for the following nutrients:

  • Vitamin C 250 mg

  • Vitamin E 200 mg

  • Beta-Carotene 5,000 IU

  • Zinc 25 mg

  • Lutein 10 mg

  • Zeaxanthin 500 mcg

  • Selenium 100 mcg

  • Calcium 500 mg

  • Folic acid 800 mcg

  • Thiamin 2 mg

  • Omega 3 Essential Fatty Acids 2,000-3,000 mg

  • Alpha Lipoic Acid 100 mg

  • N-Acetyl Cysteine 100 mg

A multiple vitamin will have many of these nutrients, and a multiple vitamin formulated for supporting healthy vision may have all of them. If not, all of these nutrients are available as separate dietary supplements.
