    About supplements in the Dry Eye Shop

    Omega 3 supplements for dry eye have been commonly recommended for people with dry eye ever since (perhaps even before) the famous Women's Health Study in 2005 indicated that "a higher dietary intake of omega-3 fatty acids is associated with a decreased presence of DES [Dry Eye Syndrome] in women". 

    We are now offering some Omega-3 supplement options in the Dry Eye Shop as a convenience to customers, knowing that you may well already be using a supplement anyway and thinking that you might appreciate the convenience of buying them here to bundle them with other purchases. 

    Full disclosure - we're not the pros on supplements! Unlike many other items sold here (eye drops, gels, ointments; goggles & glasses; scleral lens supplies; etc), I cannot claim to have any particular expertise or knowledge in nutritional supplements of any kind. As a business, we're not in a position to give you guidance on which supplement is "best". My goal is to stock a well-reputed brands and offer a range of prices, and thereafter to be guided by customer input about whether to add any more options. I strongly encourage you to ask your eye care provider about their experience and recommendations.

     

    Expectations-wise, my position on supplements tends to be "Think of this as *potentially* offering you some incremental benefit". I would want to temper expectations as I'd rather have you pleasantly surprised than disappointed. Dry Eye Shop attracts predominantly highly symptomatic people, many of whom have chronic and sometimes severe or rare diseases or conditions which often require multiple treatments and remedies to keep one's eyes comfortable and well. Because of our particular customer base, I do not advise placing strong reliance on any manufacturer claims that a supplement could replace artificial tears. Many of us use artificial tears for comfort, but some use them as a matter of medical necessity due to severe dryness and potential for ocular surface damage. As with all dry eye treatments and remedies, be guided by your eye care professional about what is best and safe for you.
