'Beyond Carrots - Best Foods For Eye Health A to Z' shatters the common myth that carrots are all you need for healthy vision.

In fact, there are over 30 nutrients your eyes need to protect and preserve them for a lifetime. In this "eye-opening" book, double board-certified ophthalmologist and integrative practitioner Dr. Rudrani Banik, M.D., shares this range of nutrients critical for healthy vision. She also highlights the Best Foods for Eye Health A to Z, an entire alphabet of therapeutic foods richest in these nutrients to support your eyesight.

In the book's foreword, New York Times best-selling author and Dr. Banik's patient, Frank Bruni, underscores the importance of being proactive about protecting eyesight. Vision is a major public health concern as the population ages, especially in light of nutrient-poor dietary habits, sedentary lifestyles, the obesity epidemic, and visual demands of excessive screen time with blue light exposure. According to the International Agency for the Prevention of Blindness, the incidence of eye diseases may rise by 55% by the year 2050, with myopia, cataracts, glaucoma, and macular degeneration becoming more prevalent.

To counter these trends, Dr. Banik stresses, "Nutrition is the foundation of healthy eyesight, and everyone - from children to adults - should be aware of the optimal diet they should follow to maintain healthy vision and avoid blindness in the years and decades to come."

The nutrients and foods in 'Beyond Carrots' will help support your eyesight and prevent common diseases like dry eye, cataracts, glaucoma, and macular degeneration. When it comes to healthy vision and the prevention of eye diseases, it is important to eat right for your sight

Complete with full-color illustrations, delicious and nutritious recipes, a chapter on eye supplements, and over 300 references, "Beyond Carrots" provides readers with a comprehensive roadmap for taking charge of their eye health. Dr. Banik's expertise as a board-certified ophthalmologist equips readers with evidence-based information, expert guidance, and practical strategies for maintaining a lifetime of healthy vision.
