We have all been there.  You stand in your local grocery or vitamin store and stare in wonder at how many different bottles there can be of the same vitamin or mineral.  The question is which one is the best for you and what do you need.  Finding that information can be a very difficult thing.  The FDA does not assess over-the-counter vitamins and minerals so finding information from them will not work.  You could try to do consumer reports but that may cost you money.  Another way is to ask your doctor what they think would work best for you.  For the purpose of this blog entry we will be discussing the right Omega-3 for your eyes.

The brand of Omega-3 that is recommended by the doctors at Solinsky Eyecare is from Nordic Naturals.  Nordic Naturals has a few different types of Omega-3 but the specific one recommended for patients with dry eyes is the ProEPA with GLA formula.  The ProEPA with GLA formula has 2 different forms of Omega-3 including the EPA (Eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (Docossahexaenoic acid) and Omega-6 GLA (Gamma-Linolenic acid).  This specific concentration has been found to be purer than other brands and will give you the right amount of Omega-3 to help with dry eyes as well as other organ systems including the heart, skin and immune system support.

The bottles come with 60 soft gels and the recommended dosing is two pills per day with food.  They are available to purchase in any of the Solinsky offices for $39.00 or at our on-line store.  If you have questions about Omega-3 vitamin options or if you would like to include Omega-3 into your personal health and wellness please call to schedule an exam today or stop by any of our locations (860) 233-2020
