Omega 3 May Promote Better Eyesight

A diet high in fish and healthy fats may lower your risk for age related eye diseases. Researchers at the University of Melbourne analyzed data from nine large studies that looked at the link between omega three fatty acids and Macular Degeneration, an eye disease that can cause severe vision loss.

They found that the people with the highest intake of omega three had a nearly 40% reduced risk for the more advanced version of the disease. Eating fish twice a week was also associated with a lower risk for Macular Degeneration.

Researchers suspect that components of omega three fatty acids may help restore nerve cells in the retina. However, experts say more rigorous studies need to be done before they can recommend routine intake of omega three for the prevention of eye diseases.
