Believe it or not, chocolate (when eaten in moderation) is actually good for your eyes. That’s because it contains flavonoids, which studies have found to lower cholesterol and protect the blood vessels in your eyes.
Coconut meat is also packed full of health benefits. With 1 cup of shredded coconut containing 7.2 grams of fibre, regular consumption will further help moderate your cholesterol levels. Reducing your LDL cholesterol plays a significant role in your overall health, including your eyes.
