Chronic dry eye can be a frustrating problem and eye drops can only provide so much relief.  Research has been done to see how nutrition plays a role in the production of tears.

Patients with dry eye were given either omega-3’s plus GLA or placebo for six months.  The omega-3 plus GLA group had improved their symptoms.  It is believed that these fatty acids help decrease inflammation in the eye.
