It has been well established that nutrition plays a key role in our health and this is no different for ocular health as well. There are many studies showing the positive effects of Omega 3 supplementation for dry eye patients.
We recommend PRN De3 Omega 3's to our patients instead of over-the-counter fish oil for a few reasons. It contains the proper concentration and ratio of DHA and EPA to improve symptoms in dry eye patients. It is also in an ultra-purified triglyceride (rTG) form, which is easier for your body to absorb and micro-distilled to remove contaminants like PCBs, lead, mercury.
Omega-3 supplements have the potential to interact with medications such as Warfarin and other blood-thinning medications. Patients taking these and other medications on a regular basis should discuss possible interactions with their healthcare providers.
