A diet that is low in trans and saturated fat helps prevent retina diseases. Several studies suggest that a Mediterranean-style diet (fish, plant-based foods, and healthy fats) is recommended for healthy vision. Not only is olive oil free of trans fats and is low in saturated fat, Australian researchers found that subjects who reported consuming the most olive oil were 48% less likely to develop ARMD. When buying olive oil, look for extra virgin for the additional antioxidant boost it provides.
