Supplements for healthy eyes

Eye Care Supplements 

Best Supplements for Eye HealthWhen it comes to protecting your eye health there are several things you can do – wearing sunglasses when outdoors, changing your contact lenses as directed, and getting regular eye exams are all things you should be doing. But have you ever considered taking eye care supplements? 

Just like your daily multivitamin for your body, there are supplements that you can take to further protect the health of your eyes. 

Best Supplements For Eye Health 

  • Vitamin A: Ophthalmologists recommend taking vitamin A to improve your night vision. Taking vitamin A improves the lubrication of the eye thus reducing blur and glare — especially at night.  
  • Vitamin C: Taking vitamin C helps slow down the progression of cataracts. While you can’t truly avoid cataracts, as they are a natural aging process, vitamin C can help keep them at bay a little longer.  
  • Omega3 Fatty Acids: Omega3s not only help cut down on the effects of dryness in the eyes, but they also help protect the retina from UV damage and aging. Many ophthalmologists will suggest fish oil supplements to round out a healthy diet full of leafy greens and fatty fishes.  
  • Lutein: Known for its anti-inflammatory properties, lutein is an important supplement for the retina. Most eye-specific vitamins will contain lutein because it helps slow down the effects of age-related macular degeneration(AMD). AMD is one of the leading causes of vision impairments. 

As you can see, there are several supplements that can play an important in maintaining healthy eyes. Before you start on any new supplements, however, it is always important to consult your health care provider. If you are already taking a daily multi-vitamin, you should check the label because you may already be getting the daily recommended dosage for these supplements.
