Eye support supplements provide the necessary support to eye function and health. As you age, your eyesight worsens. Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) and cataracts are the main causes of vision loss. You may suffer from myopia or just wish to improve your eye health. Taking supplements can help with this.
Important ingredients in eye support supplements include vitamin C, vitamin E, lutein, zeaxanthin, zinc and copper. Lutein and Zeaxanthin are carotenoids and support your retina health and protect your eyes against damaging high-energy blue and ultraviolet light.
Zinc protects your eye from cell damage. Vitamin B1 help reduces stress, inflammation and certain eye disorders. Omega-3 fatty acids commonly found in fish, support eye health and help the cornea heal and regenerate. Vitamin C is also known to reduce cataracts.
In addition to taking eye support supplements, you can also take measures to promote your eye health such as using a humidifier, drinking plenty of water, keeping your eyes moist with artificial tears, changing air conditioner filters regularly, avoiding environments with dusty or dirty air and using cold compresses, cucumbers, or dampened and cooled green or black tea bags on your eyes. Also, you can consult with an ophthalmologist to determine the best eye supplements for you.
