Eye Vitamins

Your Eyes Have Nutritional Needs Too!

As we age, our eyes can lose vital nutrients. Eye vitamins will enable you to get the proper nutrients that you need to sustain healthy vision. With that being said if your diet contains too much processed and junk food, vitamins can only do so much. Please see our page on proper eye nutrition for more information regarding what you can do to make improvements in eating foods that will benefit your long term vision.

To help replenish vital nutrients that are important to help protect your eye health the eye doctors at Washington Eye Physicians & Surgeons suggest a variety of eye vitamins and supplements. Most people’s diets do not include high amounts of Lutein, Zeaxanthin and Omega-3s. These are very important nutrients that help protect your eyes. Regardless of whether you have age-related macular degeneration or are predisposed to getting age-related macular degeneration, maintaining a diet rich in omega-3 fatty acids (DHA and EPA), lutein and zeaxanthin is a good idea.

Many Eye Vitamins will come in 2 main forms:

There are also eye vitamins for total eye health. Please consult one of the eye doctors at Washington Eye Physicians & Surgeons to find out what the best eye vitamin for you would be.
