QUESTION: I'm a 44 year old pilot, athletic, no health problems, but I've noticed my vision deteriorate requiring spectacles over the past few years. Although I can pass the medical I am keen to know if there are any supplements proven to work for maintaining or improving vision?
ANSWER: In general, as long as one eats a well-balanced diet all the essential elements, vitamins, amino acids and so on are taken care of - one really has to either eat a quirky diet or have a gastrointestinal issue that impacts absorption to be at risk of any serious deficiency that can impact vision.
