Fresh Orange Juice

Oranges are excellent for vision health as they contain high amounts of vitamin C, which keeps blood vessels in the eye strong and stable while decreasing the risk of cataract formation. Oranges also contain folate, which is important during fetal vision development, so pregnant women should drink good ol' OJ in the morning.
