Why Take Eye Care Supplements?
Eye care supplements can help maintain your vision and eye health. Piedmont Eye Care offers a range of quality supplements to help our patients achieve optimum wellness.
Before you take any supplements, be sure to discuss the matter with your optometrist and primary care doctor. Although we sell quality supplements, they might not be suitable for each individual. Sometimes a supplement may contraindicate other prescription medications or other supplements.
Have you ever heard the expression “you are what you eat?” In many ways, that saying is true. Our bodies are made from the nutrients we consume. This includes the eyes.
Key nutrients maintain our vision and the health of our eyes. While the ideal is to consume all the essential nutrients through a healthy diet, sometimes people find it difficult to consume enough of the right nutrients. This is where supplementation can help.
Some Of The Key Nutrients Your Eyes Need:
- Omega-3 fats EPA and DHA
- Vitamin C
- Vitamin E
- Carotenoids like lutein and zeaxanthin
Many people fall short on these nutrients due to following the modern diet. A high-quality supplement offers an insurance policy that you won’t fall short on the nutrients that your eyes need. While good nutrition doesn’t solve all vision problems, it is a prerequisite to maintaining healthy function.

Each of our featured supplements delivers nutrients that help some aspect of eye function. The benefits vary among each supplement. The following list highlights some key benefits.
