Usually if you eat balanced diet then no need to go extra miles for more nutrition because the amount of vitamins, minerals our eyes require is very less which can be full filled by a proper diet. 

                 Anti-oxidants are natural substances that exists as vitamins, minerals and other other compounds in food.
