More research needed on the most effective nutritional supplementation for dry eye

The use of nutritional supplements, including flax seed oil, fish oils and vitamin E, to combat the effects of dry eye appears to have positive effects on the disease, but an objective study is needed to know for sure, according to a speaker here.

"The question is: 'Which vitamin E,'" she said. "There's a tendency to think they are all the same."

Dr. Macsai said clinicians should make sure to tell patients to buy flax seed oil pills that are sold in opaque bottles so the oil does not lose its potency. Those pills seem most effective, she said.

"Ground flax seed is a great source of fiber, but it's not going to help your dry eye," Dr. Macsai said.
