Seeing You in All We Do™
Day-to-Day Vision Care
Of course, you already know about Alcon's OPTI-FREE® PureMoist®, used by millions of lens users around the globe. However, you may not be aware of the other Alcon products that can help with everyday vision care.
For instance, dry eye is an eye condition that affects many people as they get older, causing an uncomfortable burning, gritty sensation. Thankfully, Alcon has developed Systane® Lubricating Eye Drops, an artificial tear that provides fast and long lasting dry eye relief.
NUTRITION AND EYE HEALTH
Get the nutrients to fight AMD
There is growing evidence that improving your diet may also improve the health of your eyes and slow the progression of age-related macular degeneration (AMD), or reduce your risk of developing the disease.
By eating a diet rich in antioxidants, omega-3 fatty acids, and lutein and zeaxanthin you will be consuming the nutrients thought to be most valuable to eye health. These can be found in a variety of healthy foods including:
- Fresh fish
- Green leafy vegetables
You can get these nutrients either through diet or your eye care professional may recommend supplementing your diet with an ocular vitamin, such as Vitalux® Vitamins. Click to learn more about Vitalux® Vitamins
