You've probably heard that carrots and other orange-colored fruits and vegetables promote eye health and protect vision, and it's true: Beta-carotene, a type of vitamin A that gives these foods their orange hue, helps the retina and other parts of the eye to function smoothly.

But eating your way to good eyesight isn't only about beta-carotene. Though their connection to vision isn't as well-known, several other vitamins and minerals are essential for healthy eyes. Make these five foods a staple of your diet to keep your peepers in tip-top shape.

All on our high consumption list. I have to be very careful though as I'm severely allergic to raw carrots. Cooked are fine, but raw causes anaphylaxis. Dammit.

They've been on my must eat list since the first of the year. I hope to have Superman vision before long.
