Omega 3 has received quite some attention in relation to cardiovascular disease, ADHD (Attention Deficit Disorder) with children, and it would appear eyes may benefit as well.
The dietary benefits with the eyes appear to span; from treating some forms of dry eye conditions,through to improving eye pressure control (specifically internal fluid outflow inside the eyes).Steering away from Omega 6 fats, found in red meats, appears to benefit the outcome.
We dispense these findings with caution as we do not wish for patients to abandon traditionally proven treatment regimes, especially with Glaucoma management.
What is the recommended dose ?
General nutritional advice is to consume 250-500mg per day. This is equivalent to 2-3 fish meals per week. So your body and eyes will likely benefit.
