    Yes, of course, it is good for the eyes. As we know that selenium is a kind of food which is wildly used to prevent the heart diseases, and other healthy problems, such as cancer. But on the other hand, it also can do a good job to the eyes. First, you should know that Selenium is an important nutrient in the prevention of cataracts and macular degeneration. Then as we know that The primary cause of these diseases is lipid peroxidation in the eye. And also, because of the macular degeneration, people will show low levels of selenium and glutathione. So through using selenium, it can relieve the symptom. Besides, you also can use lutein, zeaxanthin, and bilberry which are also valuable supplements in the prevention against macular degeneration.
