Lutein and zeaxanthin have strong antioxidant effects, which can protect the eyes from ultraviolet rays, slow down eye aging, and prevent eye diseases. People with sufficient amounts of these two nutrients will have particularly bright eyes. Although egg yolk is good, patients with hypertension, hyperproteinemia and hyperglycemia  should not eat more.
