Vitamins to Support and Maintain Your Eye Health

Eye health is extremely important, and you may have heard over the years that certain vitamins, supplements and nutrients can help support and maintain your eye health. This is also important for those who already have good vision or may have undergone a LASIK vision correction procedure. As we discuss the vitamins below, which may help maintain your eye health, please note that these should never be used in place of medicine recommended by your eye doctor, and you should undergo regular eye exams and check ups.

According to various research studies, Vitamins A, E and C are extremely good for the eyes as well as omega-3 fatty acids and folic acid. If you are already taking a daily multivitamin, it may already contain certain amounts of the Vitamins mentioned above. However, these can also be taken individually.

If you are looking for foods that can help maintain your eye health, then vegetables such as kale, spinach and carrots are highly recommended. Nuts and legumes are also good as they contain high amounts of natural omega-3 fatty acids.

Again, please be sure that you still talk to your eye doctor about your eye health, any vision or allergy concerns affecting your eyes. Dr. Hakimzadeh and her team can help treat your concerns as well as recommend the best Vitamins and nutrients for you and your unique needs.

In addition to regular eye exams, Dr. Hakimzadeh also performs advanced eye procedures and vision correction procedures, including cataract surgery and LASIK in Michigan. She is among the most recognized ophthalmologists in the state.
