Constantly feeling like there's something in your eye
Nutrition In Occasional Dry Eye Care
Nutrition plays a huge role in the health of the ocular surface and healthy function of the tear film, both heavy contributors to occasional dry eye. In the Dry Eye Workshop II (DEWS II) report, experts updated occasional dry eye protocol to include nutritional intervention in the first tier of care.
This means that nutrition should be one of the first measures taken against ocular dryness and discomfort.
Changing Your Patients’ Occasional Dry Eye Outcome
You can make a difference in your patients’ eye health by giving them the nutritional support their eyes need now. It all starts with a proactive, science-based approach.
While eye drops can be a common recommendation, they are often a temporary fix. The American College of Allergies, Asthma and Immunology recommends that patients don't regularly use eye drops for more than 2 weeks, and many products recommend no more than 4 uses a day. Additionally, there are risks for patients who overuse eye drops, including “rebounding” (eyes rapidly returning to their previously irritated state), washing away natural tears, and masking more serious problems.
Using clinical research, EyePromise developed an eye health nutraceutical designed to support the ocular surface and tear film while providing relief for your patients' occasional dry eye symptoms. EyePromise EZ Tears is formulated with 8 soothing ingredients, including high-quality Omega-3s, to help alleviate discomfort from the inside out.

Why Our Fish Oil Stand Out?
Our highly concentrated fish oil is sourced from the oceans of Chile and put through a patented purification process to ensure quality and freshness. Certified for Responsible Sourcing, Friend of the Sea, and Dolphin Safe, these Omega-3s are as good for the environment as they are your eyes. As we mentioned, the fish oil used in EZ Tears is highly-concentrated - meaning that 70% of our fish oil is the potent, easily absorbed Omega-3s your eyes need. The average for other fish oil supplements is 40%-50%.
