For years, there has been discussion around diet and nutrition as it relates to ocular health. Many studies have shown—or suggested—the benefits of certain vitamins and nutrients for a variety of disease states, as well as for overall ocular health. As our patients’ primary eyecare providers, it is important to have a comprehensive understanding of the current literature and its impact on clinical care. This will better equip us to discuss the role of dietary supplements. By working in conjunction with a patient’s primary care physician and other specialists, we can provide a holistic approach to improve our patients’ wellbeing.
