Dry eye symptoms are caused by a chronic lack of sufficient lubrication and moisture on the surface of the eye. This lack of lubrication can cause persistent dryness, scratching and burning in eyes or a “foreign body sensation” a feeling that something is in the eye.
Tear quality is essential for good eye health. Poor tear quality can cause a wide range of symptoms from eye pain to impaired vision and a compromised quality of life. Improving the omega-3-lipid component of the tear leads to better tear composition and better lubrication for the eye.
A study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition analyzed data from an ongoing women’s health study. Women who ate a daily intake of omega-3s EPA and DHA in a natural triglyceride form reduced the risk of Dry Eye Syndrome by up to 66%.
Choosing to take an omega-3 will provide your body the necessary nutrients for optimal tear composition and overall eye health. Choosing the right omega-3 is just as important.

Improving Macular Health
Macular degeneration is a major cause of blindness in the United States. Approximately 10 million Americans age 40 and older have some form of vision loss associated with macular degeneration.
Daily supplementation of omega-3 EPA and DHA in a natural triglyceride form (the same form as fish) may arrest the advancement of and prevent the occurrence of macular degeneration. A meta-analysis from 2008 reviewed results encompassing 90,000 participants. This investigation confirmed that eating a diet rich in omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA could significantly improve macular health.
The National Eye Institute also reports in their Age Related Eye Disease Study (AREDS1) that daily supplementation of specific vitamins and carotenoids can help reduce the risk of developing early stages of macular degeneration.
Choosing to take a Macular Benefit Package will provide your body the necessary nutrients for optimal eye health. PRN’s omega-3’s rich in EPA and DHA, in their natural triglyceride form combined with our evidence based eye vitamin was designed to provide a therapeutic outcome specifically targeting improved macular health.
