I am in early stages of macular degeneration. My eye doc gave me a short list of things NOT TO EAT including tonic water. Quinine is awfully bad for eyes. I has some people do, keep it on hand for leg cramps caused by other medications. I do not use it any longer.
The link below has some good information, I follow the foods on this link pretty well, and 6 most of ago, the pressure and inflammation in my eyes was down so much he had to give me a new script
I eat avocados every day at least one, oranges at least 2 every other day.
Grant it this can be expensive. I drive a little farther to produce places ate are reasonable and you have to buy in some bulk. for Example 10 avocados at once. lf some go bad, you can cut them up and put in a plastic bag and keep for mulch for the garden plot.
The A. pits you can grind up in a food processor and put over a salad. Spinach is very good for the eyes and the iron is great for depression.
Of course I can not do anything about
the Brexit, however I can sympathize as rational Americans like myself do not understand how the president [lower case on purpose] is not impeached, or otherwise removed from office yet.
Radical acceptance has never been my strong skill. But somethings are just out of our control. We I become freaked out about
it, I start my breathing exercises and cold water. Tell myself, this already has too much power and why am I allowing it to take my peace away today. https://www.livestrong.com/article/468281-eye-inflammation-diet/
If it has to power to take everyones peace away in the future, darn I am keeping mine today. Not worrying about
the future it is not here yet... and I have to much to be thankful for.
