While applying Surma daily is definitely beneficial to the eyes‚ its efficiency can be enhanced by intake of food products that are rich in vitamin A, vitamin B2, vitamin C and vitamin D in the daily meals. Green vegetables‚ carrots and fennel seeds are also good for eyes as they are all rich in Vitamin A.
