By Clare Wilson. During the second world war, British propagandists circulated rumours that RAF pilots were such good night fliers because all the carrots they ate helped them to see in the dark. In reality the British were trying to keep their use of radar secret. Yet it turns out that there is some truth to the idea that diet can affect our eyes. Retinal cells contain three yellow pigments — lutein, zeaxanthin and meso-zeaxanthin — which absorb near-ultraviolet light, protecting the eye from its damaging effects and reducing glare. These pigments are concentrated in the centre of the retina that produces the sharp central area of our vision, the macula. We get these pigments from food, and the richer our diet is in them, the higher the levels in our macula. In theory then, people of any age could boost their eyesight by improving their diet or taking supplements.
