Did You Know Your Eyes Need Nutrition?

Protect Eye Health

There are over 2 million working parts in the human eye. To keep them working properly, we need to take care of them. Obviously regular eye exams are a good way to start. But have you ever considered feeding your eyes?

Your diet can have a significant impact on your eye health. Proper nutrition can help delay or prevent disease and maintain the overall health of your eyes.

Vision-Specific Supplements

You may not want to take a handful of pills every morning. Luckily, there are a number of over-the-counter supplements available that are specifically formulated to encourage healthy eyes. These supplements include a number of nutrients like omega-3 fatty acids, vitamin C, and Zinc.

Ask Your Doctor Before Taking Anything

Your pharmacist doesn’t know you like your doctor does. Book an appointment with your optometrist and ask them what supplements they might recommend to optimise your eye health.

How Nutrition Protects Your Eyes

Nutrition for eye health is not a do it yourself plan. Make sure you schedule an eye health exam with your Urban Optique optometrist who will discuss the best nutritional plan for your eyes.
