Ocular Vitamins – Do They Help?

Studies show…YES!

Patients with macular degeneration show a slowed or stopped progression of the disease when taking  specifically formulated vitamins like Macular Protect Complete AREDS2.

Patients suffering from dry eye (especially post-menopausal women) find long-term relief when taking a hydrating supplement like HydroEye.  Watch this video.

Ocular Vitamins

When comparing vitamins, you truly get what you pay for.
The more they cost, most likely, the better they are.

Tip: Look for Capsules.  Compressed tablets are more difficult for the body to digest, which means you may not absorb all of the nutrients in each pill.

The ocular vitamins available at your local pharmacy are NOT the same formulary as the vitamins offered by ophthalmologists.

Normal Vision Development in Adults Over 60

“As we age, even people who do not have age-related eye diseases and who have good visual acuity may experience vision changes.” Read this article from the American Academy of Ophthalmology (AAO) to learn what doctors consider “normal” vision changes.

The AAO recommends comprehensive eye exams every one to two years for everyone over 65 years of age.  Your ophthalmologist will look for age-related eye diseases such as age-related macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, glaucoma, cataract and other eye conditions.

What are Eye Allergies?

“Eye allergies, called allergic conjunctivitis, are a common condition that occurs when the eyes react to something that irritates them (called an allergen). The eyes produce a substance called histamine to fight off the allergen. As a result, the eyelids and conjunctiva — the thin, filmy membrane that covers the inside of your eyelids and the white part of your eye (sclera) — become red, swollen and itchy, with tearing and burning. Unlike bacterial or viral conjunctivitis, allergic conjunctivitis is not spread from person to person.

People who suffer from eye allergies usually (though not always) have nasal allergies as well, with an itchy, stuffy nose and sneezing. It is usually a temporary (acute) condition associated with seasonal allergies. However, in other cases, eye allergies can develop from exposure to other environmental triggers, such as pet dander, dust, pollen, smoke, perfumes, or even foods. If the exposure is ongoing, the allergies can be more severe, with significant burning and itching and even sensitivity to light.”
