Did you know that taking vitamins can help support healthy eyes? It’s true; a research study sponsored by The National Eye Institute showed that taking vitamin supplements helped to slow the process of advanced macular degeneration. Vitamins also give you valuable nutrients that you need each day for a healthy body and healthy vision. However, taking vitamins should not replace a healthy diet.
Vitamins for eye health have been evaluated for their potential in being therapeutic for eyes. Vitamins C, A and E have been identified in particular because they appear to improve, protect and support eye health. If you eye doctor feels you need added vitamins he or she can instruct you in what eye vitamin or multi-vitamin would be best for you.
If you decide to start taking vitamins and you are pregnant, nursing or taking blood thinners you will want to check with your doctor. Remember that vitamin supplements generally are safe and beneficial but you should always follow label instructions unless otherwise directed by your doctor.
