PRN Dry Eye Vitamins
Research shows that Omega-3 essential fatty acids appear to help the eye in a variety of ways, from alleviating dry eye symptoms to guarding against macular damage. Good sources of Omega-3 are cold-water fish such as salmon, mackerel and herring, fish oil supplements, and freshly ground flaxseed and walnuts. However, with a recommended daily allowance of 1,000 mg daily, most of us don’t get the proper level of Omega-3 in our diet.
We began offering PRN Eye Health Vitamins to patients seeking relief for mild to moderate dry eye symptoms. PRN Omega-3 supplements are produced in reesterified triglyceride form, which is the form you ingest when eating natural Omega-3 rich foods like fish. This form is easier for the body to absorb, and eliminates “fish burps” that result from consuming fish oil gel-tabs processed with ethyl alcohol.
