Healthy Vision : Prevent and Reverse Eye Disease through better nutrition by Neal Adams. I was recently told I have minor cataracts, might have glaucoma (or might just have weird-shaped optic nerves) and I've suffered from dry eyes for a while now, so when I saw this book on the library's acquisitions list I thought I should have a look.

The book is written at a layman's level by an ophthalmologist and it seems very much science-based. Has a good bibliography of peer-reviewed journal articles. The premise is that by eating properly the right things, some eye conditions can be improved (like dry eye) and the progression of others (like glaucoma and cataracts) can be slowed. He doesn't pretend that everything can be reversed. Of course, a lot of the advice boils down to "avoid processed food and eat a balanced diet with more veg and fruit" but he provides key nutrients for each condition and lists of which foods are highest in those nutrients. I was quite impressed and may even buy a copy for future reference.
