Dr. Mercola published an article that discusses this new research and also provides other nutrients that are important for good eye health.  These nutrients include lutein and zeaxanthin, astaxanthin, anthocyanins and animal based omega-3 fatty acids (note: plant based and animal based omega-3 are not the same thing and cannot be interchanged.  For a good source of animal based omega-3, look into krill oil).
