How to maintain or improve eyesight? What can be done at home without seeking the help of an ophthalmologist?
Undoubtedly, a balanced diet can have a significant positive effect on vision, and a number of products consumed over a long period of time will help to avoid another visit to the eye doctor. But, you need to eat such products often and a lot. There are dietary supplements (for example, Bilberry with Lutein or Bilberry-MIC) that simplify this task, they contain Bilberry extract. This berry improves blood supply to the retina, and its content of vitamins C, B1, B2 is very high. Bilberry is well known for its ability to support visual clarity and retinal function. Bilberry anthocyanosides provide antioxidant support for the eyes, the health of which may be compromised by free radical damage. Fish (omega 3 fatty acids), greens (antioxidants) and citrus fruits (vitamin C) are also very useful for the eyes.

This technique is aimed at normalizing the mental state and maintaining eyesight during fatigue and long-term work.
