NOT ALL OMEGA-3S ARE CREATED EQUAL
Research supports omega-3s in a purified triglyceride form have been shown to provide essential nutrition for the ocular surface and promote healthy vision maintenance. A recent study positively assessed the effect of the company’s oral re-esterified triglyceride omega-3 fatty acids for patients with occasional dry eye symptoms, including dryness, itching, burning, sensitivity to light and blurry vision. This new patented composition delivers a total amount of 2668mg Omega-3 essential fatty acids.
A Healthy Meibum prevents evaporation of the eye’s tear film₂
When there is an imbalance in the ratio of healthy fats, the meibum becomes inflamed and the oil composition becomes thick, which can result in a blocking of the meibomian glands. Blockage can prevent the production of the important tear film lipid layer. Without this lipid layer, the aqueous layer evaporates, resulting in dry eyes.₃
