Diet and nutrition play an important role in the overall health of the eyes and may even help prevent macular degeneration and dry eye syndrome. Omega-3, a fatty acid which can be found naturally in fish, flaxseed and walnuts, is one of the most popular supplements people take today—and for good reason! Your body can’t make them.
Many studies have shown omega-3 may help in treating dry eye syndrome. It can also act as an anti-inflammatory agent which supports good heart health.
