Dry Eye Treatment with Omega 3 Supplements


Dry Eye Disease (DED) is a global problem that affects more than 30 million people in the United States alone. Dry eye disease (DED) is a mutifactorial disease of the tear film and ocular surface that can result in eye pain and impaired vision. The main dry eye treatments are typically supportive rather than therapeutic. Based on current clinical studies in the journal Ophthalmology, today we know that a moderate daily dose of Omega 3 Supplements for about 3 months resulted in reduced tear osmolarity and increased tear stability in people with DED; and that the phospholipid form called Krill Oil is even more therapeutic, reducing DED symptoms.

If you or someone you know suffers from dry eye disease or experiences gritty, sandy, dry, or red eyes and wishes to explore whether Omega 3 Supplements would be helpful, please call Baltimore Washington Eye Center at 800-495-3937, or visit Baltimore Washington Eye Center, Google+ or facebook.com/baltimorewashingtoneyecenter.
