Starchy, sugary fare that rates high on the glycemic index increases your risk for macular degeneration (our leading cause of vision loss). Aside from reducing – or eliminating – your refined carbohydrate intake, focus on prevention as well. For example, antioxidants can help keep your eyes healthy as you age. Think green and red vegetables, fruit, fish, nuts, eggs, and a fish oil supplement. Nix the sugar, folks.
