Effect of Oral Re-Esterified Omega-3

Purpose Oral nutrition is considered primary therapy for dry eyes and meibomian gland dysfunction. The purpose of this study was to assess the effect of oral re-esterified omega-3 fatty acids on tear osmolarity. MMP-9, OSDI, tear break-up time (TBUT), Schirmer’s score, corneal staining and omega index.   Methods This was a multicenter, prospective, interventional, placebo controlled, double masked, randomized trial. On final analysis, 105 patients with dry eyes were randomized to receive four capsules (2 gm) once a day containing 1680 mg EPA and 560 mg DHA (PRN Dry Eye Omega Benefits) for 3 months or four capsules of placebo. All patients underwent a screening, baseline, 6 week and 12 weeks visit. On each visit patients were tested for tear osmolarity, MMP-9, fluorescein corneal staining, Schirmer’s testing, and OSDI. On the screening exam and week 12 evaluation patients had their omega index tested.   Results Mean tear osmolarity at baseline, week 6 and week 12 was 326.0+15.4, 317.0+20.5 and 317.7+19.7 mOsm/L for the placebo group versus 326.2+15.8, 309.4+13.4, 306.9+12.1 mOsm/L for the omega-3 group (P=0.042 Week 6; 0.004 Week 12) OSDI placebo group at baseline, week 6 and 12 was, 27.1±22.9, 19.6±17.0, and 22.0+19.3 compared to 32.4±19.2, 21±14.4, and 15.5+11.0 for the omega group. (P=0.285 Week 6; 0.002 Week 12) Tear break-up time placebo group at baseline, week 6 and 12 was 4.61±2.04, 5.55±2.43 and 5.81+3.13 compared to 4.78±2.96, 6.64±3.17 and 8.25+4.78 for the omega group. (P=0.126 Week 6; 0.002 Week 12) Omega index levels statistically improved at 12 weeks in the omega group vs placebo (p<0.001). Conclusion This study demonstrated that oral consumption of re-esterified omega-3 fatty acids... read more

How Diabetes Can Damage Your Eyes

Having diabetes puts you at risk for eye problems. Learn about diabetes-related eye conditions that can threaten your sight and how to avoid them. By Regina Boyle Wheeler Medically reviewed by Farrokh Sohrabi, MD and Matthew Dombrow, MD Type 2 diabetes complications can be widespread, affecting nearly every part of your body. One of the greatest threats is to your eyes. People with diabetes have a higher risk of developing serious eye problems than people without diabetes do. Diabetes causes increased inflammation in the body, which is particularly evident in blood vessels both big and small, says Mario Skugor, MD, an endocrinologist at the Cleveland Clinic in Ohio. Problems with larger blood vessels can cause heart attacks and strokes, he says, while damage to smaller ones, the capillaries, can cause kidney and eye problems. “If you look in the eye of a person with diabetes, you will frequently see the damaged capillaries,” Dr. Skugor says. Successfully managing diabetes and other health conditions and seeing an eye doctor regularly are key to keeping your eyes healthy. Here’s what you need to know about diabetes-related eye problems.

There are two types of diabetic retinopathy: Non-proliferative diabetic retinopathy is the most common... read more
