... so make sure you read this
As a doctor, we recommend nutritional supplements for a number of reasons. Among those are dry eye and macular degeneration. In both cases the patients often have dry mouths as well. When you have a dry mouth, it is harder to swallow things. When you have trouble swallowing the worst thing that you can do is put a large chunk of something in your mouth that is inherently a bit sticky or very dry and try to swallow it. Enter the Omega 3 1000 mg soft gel or any other vitamin supplement or pill. So which one of these in the picture is most likely to get “stuck?”
Controversy abounds in the arena of the impact of behavior and nutrition related to all disease…including glaucoma. The following is an exercise in science to attempt to bring some organization and sense to the discussion.
Eyelessons.com continues to be a sponsor-free website for educational purposes. However, all readers should realize that behavior is critical to maintenance of overall and ocular health and doctors should be sensitizing patients to the issue. With that being said, I want to highlight a new publication by an eye doctor that speaks to a healthy life style and provides some doggone good recipes at the same time. I have tried a few and can recommend the book highly.
Neither eyelessons.com nor Larry Alexander, OD is receiving any compensation for this recommendation.
