Dry eye disease has been a growing problem for the last few years due to an increase in use of screens, in addition to the usual culprits such as aging and other diseases like Sjogren’s. Finding ways to treat this ever growing problem is a challenge doctors have been trying to tackle for years, luckily, there are studies showing vitamin therapy could bring relief.
New studies suggest that vitamins are important in maintaining proper tear function. Your tears are made of 3 layers (oil, water, and mucus). Whenever the balance of these layers is disrupted, or our body simply isn't making enough tears, dry eye symptoms begin. Keeping vitamins at the proper levels in your body helps improve tear quality, thus helping in the relief of dry eye symptoms.
Below are the vitamins that can make a difference in your eyes.
*Always discuss the benefits and risks with your doctor before starting any vitamin therapy
