Omega-3s and Eye Health: Protecting Your Vision

Maintaining good eyesight is crucial, especially as we age. Omega-3 fatty acids, particularly DHA, have been shown to play a significant role in supporting eye health.

A study published in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition in 2008 by SanGiovanni et al. explored the impact of omega-3 intake on age-related macular degeneration (AMD). The study found that higher omega-3 consumption was associated with a reduced risk of developing neovascular AMD, a severe form of this eye condition.

The presence of DHA in high concentrations in the retina underscores its importance in maintaining healthy vision. To support your eye health, consider incorporating fatty fish and other omega-3-rich foods into your diet, or consult with a healthcare professional about omega-3 supplements.
