In brief: Lutein

Is an essential micronutrient (vitamin) for the retina.
It is found in dark green leafy vegetables, like spinach, kale and mustard greens and in egg yolks. There is some evidence that lutein may be helpful in prevention of macular degeneration. So be like popeye and eat your spinach.
