Eye spy.

My eyesight is not great and I refuse to wear glasses or contacts. Which isn’t necessarily terrible. It gives me that Cybil-Sheppard-in-Moonlighting haze when I look in the mirror. That, I don’t mind. The trouble of course is when I drive, it’s Mr. Magoo time. Thank God I live in New York City and don’t own a car. Let me just say to all the other drivers out there, you’re welcome. And to you I say, let’s talk about eye health.

A new study from Tufts University finds that eating the right foods can drastically reduce risk of developing Age-Related Macular Degeneration, a disease that impairs your sight as you age.

So what “right foods” should you be (ahem) looking out for? Try foods with a low-glycemic index and rich with nutrients that promote eye health – spinach, dried apricots, peanut butter, broccoli, red peppers and egg yolks. It’s never too soon to start mixing these into meals to make sure your family has the eye of the tiger and that twinkle in their eye and eye, eye captain and, oh forget it, there are just too many eye puns.

Here’s looking at you.
