Good vision is vital to overall health.
Omega-3s can play a role.
The body’s highest concentration of DHA is found in the retina of the eye and DHA is an important nutrient for the cells of the eye that control the ability to see under different lighting conditions. Research has shown EPA and DHA are important for proper visual development and retinal function and omega-3s may also help alleviate the symptoms of dry eye syndrome in adults.
Research suggests that increased intake of EPA and DHA omega-3s can reduce symptoms of dry eyes.
Ongoing research and current evidence suggests that omega-3s may decrease risk of age-related macular degeneration.
