SmartBuyGlasses share ten Superfoods for eye health which improve your night vision

NEW YORK - July 18, 2018 - eTradeWire -- Nyctalopia, or night blindness, is a condition that renders you unable to see clearly, or at all, at night or in low light conditions. Most commonly caused by a Vitamin A deficiency, the impact of this condition on overall quality of life cannot be underestimated.

It's now a well-known fact that many foods, such as carrots, egg yolks, and leafy greens, contain vitamin A, which in turn contains retinol. Retinol is a retinoid that your body needs in order to synthesize rhodopsin, the pigment in your eyes that operates in conditions of low or dim light.

Scientifically speaking, foods which contain components that synthesize rhodopsin are beneficial when trying to improve your vision in low light conditions. If you wish to improve your night vision, as well as improve your overall macular health, SmartBuyGlasses, the world's largest online stockist of designer eyewear (sunglasses and eye glasses), has put together this list of ten super foods you should try to work into your diet and consume on a regular basis.
