OCULAR NUTRITION

At The Optical Centre, we pride ourselves on being up to date on the evidence-based role of nutrition and nutritional supplements in the management of eye health.

If someone had told you a few years ago that what you eat can affect your vision or the progression of disease in the eye, you may have nodded politely, rolled your eyes, and headed straight for the dessert table.

However, what we now know, and what has been shown in many scientific trials, is that nutrition has a profound effect on vision and vision-related disease including dry-eye, glaucoma, cataracts and macular degeneration.

At The Optical Centre, we pride ourselves on being up to date on the evidence-based role of nutrition and nutritional supplements in the management of eye health.

  • Do you know that if you have dry eye, you may be deficient in vitamin D?
  • Do you know that a high intake of green leafy vegetables is associated with a lower risk of Glaucoma?
  • Do you know that a Mediterranean Diet (sorry Banters!) is associated with a reduced progression of age-related macular degeneration?
  • Do you know that omega-3 fatty acids have been shown to be an effective therapy for dry eye syndrome?

Speak to one of our knowledgeable optometrists about your ocular nutrition needs.
