A DIET TO HELP PREVENT SERIOUS EYE ILLNESS

Want a diet that might help your eyes? Think green.

Chicago ophthalmologist Dr. Jonathan Rosin recommends a diet rich in green, leafy vegetables, plus adding in two servings of fish a week.

"It's all the things that mom told you to do," Rosin said.

The federal National Eye Institute's Age-Related Eye Disease Study found that taking in high levels of antioxidants and zinc can reduce the risk of macular degeneration by about 25 percent.
