Tomatoes Help Keep Your Eyes Bright
With high levels of vitamins E, A and C, as well as copper, tomatoes are a pretty good menu choice if you want to keep your eyes in top condition, but they also have a few secret ingredients that make them a super food for your eyes.
Tomatoes contain the phytochemical antioxidants zeaxanthin, lutein and lycopene, all compounds that protect the eye from light damage. The human body cannot synthesize these compounds, so they have to be introduced by the foods we eat [source: California Growers].
Instead of eating an apple, eat a tomato a day to keep the eye doctor away.
