Omega-3 fatty acids are notorious for being good for your health and the eyes do not fall short of absorbing these benefits. These vital nutrients are necessary for the production and functioning of cells, organs, nerves and even muscle. They also play a role in blood pressure regulation and blood clotting. Omega-3’s are essential fatty acids which means that while necessary, we need to obtain them from food. Three types of Omega-3 fatty acids include docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), eicopentaenoic acid (EPA) and alpha-linolenic acid (ALA). Omega-6 fatty acids are also an essential fatty acid needed for growth and development but an excess of Omega-6 can be pro-inflammatory.

 

Several studies have concluded that Omega-3 fatty acids protect adult eyes from macular degeneration and dry eye syndrome. The 2009 AREDS study by the National Eye Institute found that participants who reported the highest amount of omega-3 fatty acids in their diet were 30% less likely than peers to develop macular degeneration in a 12-year period. In the Women’s Health Study of 2005 of more than 32,000 women, those who ingested at least two servings of tuna per week had significantly less risk of dry eye inflammation than those who ate one or fewer servings per week.

 

Both Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids are important to the body’s overall health, but the dietary balance is very important with most experts recommending a ratio of Omega-6 to Omega-3 be 4:1 or lower. A great way to improve your diet is to ingest more foods rich in Omega-3 fatty acids. Cold-water fish is high in DHA and EPA but Americans often do not eat enough fish to get a healthy dietary amount of Omega-3s.

 

Omega fatty acid supplements are a way to make sure you are receiving adequate amounts of the beneficial fatty acids in your diet and are often recommended by eye care providers to assist in providing relief of dry eye inflammation. The doctors at EYESPOT recommend the HydroEye supplement which contains a blend of Omega fatty acids (gamma-linolenic acid, EPA and DHA) and antioxidants to support a healthy tear film and soothe the ocular surface. We invite you to contact EYESPOT with any further questions about HydroEye!
