Zucchini is rich in lutein and zeaxanthin, two antioxidants that were found to prevent age-related macular degeneration.  The carotenoid Beta-carotene can be converted into vitamin A in the body. The presence of Vitamin A in the squash helps in active cell development in the eyes, which enhances vision and helps in preventing age-related medical conditions affecting the eyes.
