Vitamins & Supplements
At Nova Eye Care, we encourage our patients to consider the various vitamins and supplements that we offer at our clinic to help support healthy eyes outside of the doctors office!
Macular pigment consists of three (3) dietary nutrients – Lutein, Zeaxanthin and Meso-Zeaxanthin. Nature gives us the ability to selectively accumulate these three nutrients at the very center of the retina. In other words, where vision is sharpest and where color is processed. Unfortunately, today’s processed foods lack the nutrients required to maximize macular pigment. Because of this, supplementation is now believed to be the best way to protect your macula. Replenishing Macular Pigment with MacuHealth helps protect the macula (central retina) from disease, in addition to optimizing visual performance. We highly suggest this supplement for nearly all of our patients!
ProOmega®-D provides exceptionally high levels of the omega-3 essential fatty acids EPA and DHA, in addition to 1000 I.U. of vitamin D3, in one delicious serving. Vitamin D3 (or cholecalciferol) is the natural form of vitamin D produced by the body, and is better absorbed and utilized than other forms.
