Green Leafy Veggies: Carrots have vitamin a. Your liver can store enough beta-carotene (vitamin a) for a year if you eat one carrot. Green leafy veggies contain anti-oxidants which may be helpful in preventing macular degeneration or at least in stabilizing it once it has started. Vitamin c may be helpful in preventing cataracts.
