As we age, our eyesight steadily declines, and our eyes become more susceptible to cataracts and conditions like macular degeneration. Fortunately, we know of certain vitamins for eye health that can help keep vision strong and ward off serious eye conditions. Eye health supplements include:
- vitamins A and C
- Folic Acid
- Alpha Lipoic Acid
- vitamin E
Our IV vitamin clinic provides injection and IV forms of most of these supplements to boost vitamin levels, replace deficiencies, and support eye health.
IV Vitamin Therapy offers a variety of nutrients for injection directly into the bloodstream. We are an upscale, boutique-style medical office and all of the nutrients that we offer are made from some of the highest-grade ingredients in the medical industry.
Best Vitamins for Eye Health
The vitamins and minerals recommended for eye health (which we listed above) are all considered antioxidants; they fight against the formation and harmful accumulation of free radicals in the blood. They are also considered allies in staving off cataracts, macular degeneration, and other serious eye conditions. These vitamins and minerals can all be found in the food we eat and in the form of orally consumed supplements. Unfortunately, medical experts agree that some adults don’t get all of the essential nutrients they need from food alone.
Eye health supplements in pill form provide one option for extra vitamin intake, but supplements in pill form are not always as effective as you might think. The primary problem with oral vitamins is that they have to pass through the stomach and the liver when digested, and it’s the stomach and the liver which can degrade the potency and effectiveness of nutrients that are delivered via pill. So, by the time the vitamins and minerals reach the intestines for absorption into the bloodstream, only a fraction of the original potency is left.
Depending on a patient’s medical history, your healthcare provider may prescribe one of the vitamins mentioned earlier, another supplement such as magnesium or fatty acids, or a cocktail of vitamins tailored specifically to the patient’s needs.
Vitamin B and Eyesight
B-complex vitamins (which include multiple important B vitamins such as vitamin B12 and B6) have been found to reduce the risk of age-related macular degeneration (AMD). AMD is a degenerative eye disease that results in vision loss.
The macula (a part of the retina) begins to lose function over time due to damage from oxidation. But macular degeneration can also be caused by vitamin B12 deficiency!
Glutathione and Eyesight
Glutathione is an amino acid considered by many to be a “super antioxidant.” Its anti-aging properties come from its superior ability to neutralize free radicals.
It’s important to the function of the optic nerve, cornea, macula, retina, and lens of the eye. Alongside vitamin C, glutathione neutralizes free radicals in the eye, protecting the lens and retina from damage. Glutathione and vitamin C deficiency are often seen in glaucoma patients.
And as an added bonus, glutathione and vitamin C also help support your immune system, letting you support your eye health and general wellness with one IV drip.
Vitamin A and Eyesight
You’ve probably heard that carrots are good for your eyes. That’s actually because they’re such good sources of vitamin A! Vitamin A helps protect the cornea and helps protect the surface of the eye against bacteria. Vitamin A is also essential for tear production and eye lubrication – no one wants itchy, dry eyes.
Why use IV Vitamins to Help Eyesight
IV vitamin therapy allows vitamins, minerals, and amino acids to be injected directly into your bloodstream at full potency. In instances when deficiencies exist and it is difficult to replace such deficiencies with supplements alone, one can receive injections and intravenous replacement.
With IV treatments, higher dosages of certain nutrients can be injected in a single session with little to no discomfort. The delivery of nutrients and eye supplements is facilitated by a basic IV drip, and patients are awake and aware for the entire 20- to 60-minute session. Most patients use the time to relax with a book or work remotely.
