Dry Eye

Disease

Daily supplements of flaxseed oil or fish oil, when used alone or in tandem with lubricating eye drops, provide important dietary fatty acids and appear to reduce dry eye symptoms, including burning, stinging, redness and intermittent visual disturbances. For this reason, many eye doctors now are recommending these supplements for their patients who suffer from dry eyes. Research also suggests these same fatty acids may reduce the risk of macular degeneration and cataracts
