Natural Eye Care Options for Ophthalmic Patients

Posted by Joe on 8/15/2013 to Ophthalmic Discussion

Ophthalmic patients with conditions such as cataracts, macular degeneration and floaters have several options for improving their eye health using natural means. Certain dietary and nutritional supplements support eye health and help prevent the slow degradation of the eyes. The best natural supplements for eye health are:

• Vitamin A: Vitamin A ensures proper functioning of the retina. Deficiencies in vitamin A can cause disorders such as night blindness. Adequate amounts of this vitamin can prevent dryness of the eyes.

• Lutein: Lutein prevents cataracts and macular degeneration. Spinach, tomatoes, squash and carrots contain this nutrient.

• Beta Carotene: The body converts beta-carotene into vitamin A, which prevents certain eye diseases. Sweet potatoes, kale, spinach and carrots have beta-carotene.

• Vitamin C: This vitamin helps maintain the health of collagen tissue. It can also be used to treat and prevent glaucoma.

• Chromium: Chromium helps maintain appropriate intraocular pressure in the eyes. Onions and tomatoes are excellent sources of this important mineral.

• Zinc: The retina contains high levels of zinc to maintain proper eye function.

• Manganese: Manganese promotes healthy functioning of the eyes. Wheat germ, nuts and seeds provide an excellent source of this nutrient.

• Omega-3 Fatty Acids: Omega3 decreases the effects of eyestrain, and it helps to maintain the strength of the neural tissues.

The ocular system of the body contains a complex vascular network and is a highly specialized part of the brain. The consumption of adequate nutrients ensures the support and maintenance of the visual system. The above list of supplements will help with the natural care of the eyes. An eye care professional can provide expert advice to individual patients to achieve the desired results.
