Fish, nuts good for eyes

May 12, 2009 A new study shows eating fish, nuts, olive oil and other foods rich in omega-3 fatty acids may help protect your eyes.

Researchers found that eating one serving of fish per week was associated with a 31 percent lower risk of developing early AMD. Eating one to two servings of nuts per week lowered the risk by 35 percent.

Those who ate the highest amounts of trans-fats found in baked goods and processed foods were 76 percent more likely to develop AMD.

This study is in the Archives of Ophthalmology.
