At Look Optometry and Eyewear, we not only want to serve all your eye needs, but also want to keep you healthy as a whole. We as eye care practitioners have the ability to see signs of diabetes, high blood pressure, cholesterol, myasthenia gravis, multiple sclerosis and much more! When optometrists see signs and symptoms of dry eyes, many will say that the tear film is low in omega 3s. However, I would say not only does your tear film lack omega 3s, but the entire body does, even the brain! Low levels of ‘good fat’ can lead to depression, anxiety and memory loss, and many more consequences. Please watch the video below and hopefully it will inspire you to have a few more nuts and seeds in your diet.
