Coffee Can Help Your Eyes

In addition to helping you keep your eyes open in the morning, coffee may have other ocular benefits. Raw coffee contains chlorogenic acid, a strong antioxidant that might prevent degeneration of the retina, a thin tissue layer inside the eye, reports research recently published in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry.

Other potential benefits of drinking coffee include a reduced risk of Parkinson’s disease, type 2 diabetes, prostate cancer and age-related cognitive decline.
