Omega-3 Essential Fatty Acids
Omega-3 essential fatty acids are helpful in systemically reducing the inflammation of the accessory lacrimal glands of the eyes. In addition, it has been found that these same Omega-3 essential fatty acids are beneficial in controlling meibomitis and chronic lid disease. Dry Eye Omega Benefits® is formulated with a high concentration of the anti-inflammatory Omega-3, EPA (eicosapentanoic acid), and Vitamin D3. It works from within to help alleviate dry eye syndrome.
At MEA we are sincere believers in the benefits of Omega 3. However, not all Omega 3 supplements are created equal. It is important to take supplements that are found in their triglyceride form which is naturally occurring and has an absorption rate of 69%. Most products on the market are in ethyl ester form whose absorption rate is much lower, at 20%. Additionally, some of the less expensive over-the-counter brands of Omega 3 may contain high levels of PCBs and heavy metals such as mercury.
MEA carries Physician Recommended Nutriceuticals (PRN) Dry Eye Omega which stands behind all of its products with the confidence that each one is of the purest, highest quality marine source Omega 3 available. These products are available through physician recommendation only and are available at Matossian Eye Associates.
