I eat a healthy diet, lots of fruits & veggies plus other stuff. I also take a Bilberry and Lutein supplement.

A raw diet is the BEST thing you can do for your vision. Keep it up.

Drink plenty of fresh made raw carrot juice. Carrots for the eyes.

Go for foods rich in beta carotene, like carrots, sweet potatoes, spinach, kale & pumpkin. Zinc is also said to be helpful.

Someone recommended the following site (I have no eye trouble so I can't vouch for it, but it sounds interesting):

Along with all of your healthy vegan food choices, rebounding is an excellent choice to help preserve your vision.
Because your eyes are set apart from each other they perceive any scene uniquely, forcing your brain to compare the two pictures. Messages are signaled to a separate part of your brain as muscles shift your eyes about, to process your view of the world in three-dimensional form. Your right eye, corresponding to the right side of your body is controlled by the left side of your brain. Your left eye, corresponding to the left side of your body, is controlled by the right side of your brain.
Healthy vision depends on quality integration between both sides of your brain. Since the 1930's visual therapists have been utilizing rebounding exercise techniques as a tool in therapy programmes for retraining vision. Improved balance, rhythm, visually guided direction and movement, spatial awareness, tactile and kinesthetic awareness, attention span and improved breathing patterns are among the skills nurtured in their programmes.
If you don't have any eye problems, I don't see why you can't keep it up.
Or are you already experiencing some?
A healthy diet, super relaxation, plus healthy vision habits:
'Relearning to see' by Thomas Quackenbush is a VERY good book, based on the Bates method (holistic vision improvement). Look it up on Amazon.
