Regular Eye Care Is Important

Annual eye exams are recommended,
especially for those who are 40+

Here's to your eye health.

There has been a lot of focus in recent years on essential fatty acids and their impact on health, particularly for those with dry eye. In this case, many credible scientific studies have shown positive results for dry eye patients who consume adequate amounts of these essential fatty acids. As a result of these well-studied benefits, incorporating omega fatty acids into your diet for relief of dry eye symptoms is one dietary recommendation that you might want to consider.

The consumption of omega fatty acids has received lots of attention and research due to their potential for numerous health benefits. These essential fatty acids, called omega 3’s and omega-6’s, are necessary for your body to function correctly and must be obtained through diet as your body cannot produce them. Omega-3’s can be obtained from plant-based sources like flaxseeds, soybeans, pumpkin seeds, walnuts, and tofu. Omega 6’s come mostly from plant-based oils, for example, those made from corn, soybeans, and sunflowers. Most Americans obtain enough omega-6 fatty acids with a normal diet but may fall short on omega-3 consumption. It is best to obtain these nutrients by incorporating foods rich in essential fatty acids but supplements may be used effectively as well.
