Fish Oil and Flaxseed for Dry Eyes

Dry eyes can be a serious problem for many people, but making some nutritional changes can help. Flaxseed oil and fish oil with their fatty acids can help relieve some of the symptoms of dry eyes, according to AllAboutVision.com. Fatty acids also can help reduce the risk of cataracts and macular degeneration. According to this article, flaxseed oil supplements come in capsule and liquid forms, but you may need a large number of them to achieve the dose you would need to treat dry eyes. Fish oil supplements are also available in capsule and liquid forms. You also could simply incorporate grilled, cold-water fish into your diet three times a week. Your doctor may recommend these supplements in conjunction with eye drops, but the bottom line is the burning, stinging and redness can be reduced, bringing relief to dry eyes. Have you tried flaxseed or fish oil for dry eyes? Did it help?
