Our eyes are a small but mighty component of our body. When they don’t work properly, or they feel dry or itchy, it can affect our productivity, our comfort and even our safety. Driving or crossing a road with blurry eyes is not recommended! And trying to focus as we work or read from a screen with tired eyes is utterly exhausting for every part of our face and brain.
Healthy eats – a feast for the eyes
Eating a healthy diet and getting enough exercise is important for maintaining overall health, but did you know that taking supplements can also be beneficial for eye health? While a healthy diet is always the best way to get the nutrients your body needs, certain vitamins and minerals are essential for eye health, like omega-3 fatty acids and vitamin A, and can be hard to get enough of through food alone.
Could supplements be the solution for you and your eyes?

Stars in your eyes
Do you hold menus at arm’s length? Squint at ingredients in the supermarket? It happens to us all! Age-related macular degeneration affects the central part of the retina making reading difficult. Refractive errors can lead to blurred vision, near-sightedness, far-sightedness and astigmatism.
A dry eye in the house
One of the most common eye complaints is dry eye syndrome, when the eyes don’t produce enough tears, causing discomfort and irritation. And the sticky, painful conjunctivitis, or pink eye, which leaves eyes red, itchy and can seep a nasty discharge.
Pain in the eye? Why?
Age is a common factor in many eye health issues, but genetics also play a role. Some eye problems run in families, and environmental factors, like exposure to ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun without proper eye protection can increase the risk of eye conditions as well as excessive use of digital screens which can cause eye strain and dry eyes.
Live well, see well
Lifestyle choices can also impact eye health. Smoking, unhealthy eating habits and lack of exercise can also contribute to eye problems. Nutrition is key to healthy eyes.
Vitamins – a feast for the eyes
Which are the best vitamins to help with eye problems?
Omega-3 fatty acids have anti-inflammatory properties which may help prevent diabetic retinopathy and can help with dry eyes. Vitamin A has been associated with a reduced risk of cataracts and AMD. Riboflavin and vitamin E are antioxidants, and could help protect eyes against damaging free radicals and has been linked to a reduced risk of cataracts. Vitamin C forms collagen, a protein that gives structure to your eyes, whilst vitamins B6, B9 and B12 may help reduce the risk of developing AMD by lowering homocysteine levels. Niacin, lutein and zeaxanthin also work to prevent AMD and cataracts.
A diet that is high in fruit and veg can provide many nutrients, but it’s hard to get the right quantities and balance through diet alone. Vegetology’s range of supplements are designed to support healthy eyes, specifically:
