Have you ever wondered how your diet relates to your eye health?  If so, you are not alone.  Many people are confused about the importance of diet when it comes to eye sight.  My favorite saying is,” What is good for the rest of your body is good for your eyes.”  Followed closely in second place is, “you are what you eat!”  With these two tips in mind it is easy to make decisions that will have positive effects on your vision.

The latest research in the medical journals support the use of Omega 3 fatty acids in the prevention of vision loss, reduction in inflammation , and help for dry eyes.  Tuna, salmon, and supplements are three easy ways to help your eyes stay healthy.  These are particularly important for young eyes that are still developing.

I recently attended a lecture given by Dr. Bruce Holub about the importance of Omega 3 in our diets.  His web site is a wonderful resource for more information  http://www.dhaomega3.org/  Check it out and let me know what you are doing to keep your eyes healthy!
