Study: Mediterranean Diet May Boost Eye Health

I have been telling my patients for quite some time that omega-3 fatty acids are good for the eyes. These essential fatty acids can help people with dry eye disease.

A recent study also shows that it can reduce the risk of sight-stealing macular degeneration, too:

Two studies released this week in the Archives of Ophthalmology show adults who followed a Mediterranean-style diet high in omega-3 fatty acids found in fish, nuts, and olive oil and low in the trans fats found in baked and processed foods have a much lower risk of developing the sight-robbing disease.

This is one more reason to pay attention to your diet and talking to your doctors about omega-3 supplements if you think you don't get enough.

Eat well!
