For the longest time, the main ingredient that people were after for eye health was found in tomatoes. While antioxidants play a vital role in protecting the eyes, omega 3 fatty acids have been found to be protective for eye health as well. The retina is mostly composed of a compound called DHA, which is a type of omega 3 fatty acid. When your eyesight slips and is not what it was before, then this could be due to a lack of omega 3 fatty acids in your diet.
