This meeting MAGISNAT and the committee of the Fondazione Policlinico Agostino Gemelli IRCCS (Rome, Italy) discussed the importance of adopting the Mediterranean diet to prevent eye diseases.
It emerged from this meeting that diet, being a key lifestyle factor, can also exert long-term effects on ocular health and play a key role in preventing visual dysfunction, which can lead to permanent visual impairment or blindness.
Specifically, the Mediterranean Diet (MedDiet) has been in the limelight since the 1980s for the many health benefits it offers, including eye health. This, being characterized by the consumption of small amounts of red meat, intake of fish, eggs, nuts, legumes, citrus fruits, green vegetables, olives and their derivatives, particularly olive oil, and dairy products in a proportionate manner, helps to achieve maximum health benefits.
In summary, the Mediterranean diet would seem to be the best solution for leading a healthy life and preventing the possible occurrence of certain eye-related diseases.
