In brief: Hmmm
Best for eyes: wear good sunglasses in sun, goggles when doing anything that makes chips, dust or sparks; avoid over-drying (drink water, eat plenty of healthy oil) & remember to blink.
Staring at screens reduces blinking in a way that books do not.If you eat a good diet, you don't need more than rda dose of vitamin a, d&e unless your eye doc says so. See eye doc yearly for pressure check after 40.

In brief: Depends
If one has a 'normal' diet, vitamin supplementation has not conclusively been shown to improve eye health.
With certain vitamin deficiencies, such as vitamin a etc.. Supplementation would be helpful. The only vitamins shown to have beneficial effect are the so called - areds vitamins. These have been shown to slow macular degeneration in susceptible patients and may be prescribed by your dr.
