Eye Vitamins & Supplement Recommendations for:

Eye Fatigue

Our fast paced life based mostly on close work, especially computers, is causing lots of problems for vision. Computer eye strain is the most common complaint to eye doctors today.

Moisture Support

Dry Eye

Comfort depends upon your eye retaining moisture. This function is supported by the three layers of the tear film: the mucous layer, the watery layer and the oily layer.

Corneal Support

Cornea

The cornea not only protects the eye from foreign objects and water, but it absorbs oxygen and nutrients and actually provides 65% to 75% of the focusing capacity of the eye. It consists of a number of layers performing very precise functions.

Eyelid & Conjunctiva

Eyelid

Inflammation of the eyelid and/or conjunctivits can produce a number of common, mostly not too serious, conditions. However, if any of these conditions last more than a week or so you should see an eye doctor.

Health of the Lens

Lens

Changes to the eye's lens can result in cloudy, blurry vision, eventually limiting your ability to drive, read and see color.

The Vitreous Humour

Vitreous humour

The vitreous (or vitreous humour) is a gel-like substance that fills the center of the eyeball maintaining a constant pressure to hold the shape of the eye. It can thin, shrink and clot with age leading to floaters and detachment from the back of the eye. Learn more about how to support the health of your vitreous.

The Retina

Retina

The retina located at the back of your eyes is a layer of tissue that contains nerve cells, blood vessels, photoreceptor cells and other layers that help distribute nutrients to the eyes. Damage to the retina harms central and overall vision in a variety of ways. Learn more about how to support the health of your retina and over all eye health.

The Macula

Macula

The macula is located at the back of your eye near the center of your retina. The macula enables central vision, the vision that enables you to make out details. It is essential in order to read and recognize faces. Learn more about how to support the health of your macula and retina and over all eye health.

The Eye's Vascular System

Blood supply

The choroid is the spongy layer next to the retina that supplies it with oxygen and nutrients along with other critical functions. This structure along with the vortex veins and retinal artery and retinal vein work together to protect and nourish the retina.

The Optic Nerve

Optic nerve

If the optic nerve is damaged by nutrient deprivation, trauma, compression from pressure, or other causes, vision is significantly impared. Learn about lifestyle and nutrition to support the health of your optic nerve.

  • Inflammation, trauma, deficiencies, toxic damage Several examples: The optic nerve can become inflammed due to autoimmune or viral condtions resulting in optic neuritis. Nutritional deficiencies are tied to various optic neuropathies.
  • Intraocular pressure Untreated increased intraocular pressure (eye pressure) can eventually affect peripheral (side) vision causing glaucoma.
  • Hereditary damage There are several hereditary conditions which can cause damage to the optic nerve. One of them is Leber's which usually affects young men and is passed from the mother's genes.
  • Related conditions: glaucoma, optic neuritis, Leber's hereditary optic neuropathy, and optic nerve strophy.
