We all grew up thinking carrots were the food for great vision. If your eyes are a concern for you, then green is the way to go.
Carrots are great raw foods, but if you're looking to keep your eyes healthy it is actually the dark green, lutein-rich foods that will help slow macular degeneration; kale, collards and swiss chard. Coming in a close second are fatty fishes such as sardines, herring and mackerel.
If these dark leafy greens are new to you they can taste quite bitter. The best way to try them for the first time is to boil them in a small amount of water until they are limp. Then try tossing it with a touch of balsamic vinegar. In order to avoid the taste altogether, you can always take the raw food, chop it up in a food processor very finely, and then sprinkle it in a pasta dish (lasagne works well) or salads or soup.
The foods to avoid? Not surprisingly, refined grains and added sugars are going to add to macular degeneration and need to be limited as much as possible.
