Monitor and Compare Our Omega-3 Indexes - Here are my results!

Submitted by dave on Sun, 02/01/2015 - 2:16pm
I just had my Omega-3 Index tested by OmegaQuant, a leader in fatty acid analysis. It is a simple, inexpensive, home-based test. In this post I share my results and provide some discussion of what they mean in the context of glaucoma. I also share my thoughts on the supplements needed to achieve even better test results!

Omega-3 Fatty Acids Improve Vision In Glaucoma

Glaucoma is a chronic, neurodegenerative disease that is the second most common cause of blindness in the world. All available treatment is focused on lowering IOP to slow the progression of the disease, with no current therapy to reverse visual field loss or improve visual acuity available. Therefore, in this article, the authors describe the use of high dose omega‐3 fatty acids to combat the neuro‐inflammation in glaucoma patients, thereby improving visual acuity and visual field in glaucoma patients.
