@mcneeleyecenter Are you suffering from Dry Eye? It’s possible to start relieving symptoms just by taking 2000 mg of pharmaceutical grade Fish Oil per day.
According to Katherine Zeratsky , R.D., with the Mayo Clinic:
“Research suggests that taking an omega-3 fatty acid supplement can reduce symptoms of dry eyes. Omega-3 supplements are safe for most healthy adults and generally have few side effects when taken in a standard dose. Before you begin taking a supplement, however, talk with your health care provider to make sure it’s right for you.
To maintain eye comfort and good vision, the front surface of your eye must be covered with an even layer of tears that contain the right mix of water and oils. If tears are not of sufficient quantity or quality to maintain that layer, dry eye disease (also called ocular surface disease) can develop.
Symptoms of dry eyes can be bothersome and may include a stinging, itchy or burning sensation in your eye; sensitivity to light; blurred vision; mucus in or around your eye; and excessive tearing. Dry eye disease tends to be a chronic condition, and it usually cannot be cured completely. However, various treatments can be used to ease symptoms.
In recent years, fish oil has been suggested as a possible remedy for dry eyes. Fish oil contains two omega-3 fatty acids called docosahexaenoic acid, or DHA, and eicosapentaenoic acid, or EPA. Omega-3 fatty acids are thought to provide a wide range of health benefits. Due to these potential benefits, fish oil has become a popular dietary supplement.” Call our office today for a Dry Eye consultation and learn more about how you can resolve your Dry Eye symptoms!
