VisiVite's Dry Eye Relief TG-1000 is one of only four dry eye vitamins that are made using the preferred triglyceride form of omega 3 fatty acids, reported Dr. Eric Donnenfeld, in a presentation at the annual American Society of Cataract and Refractive Specialists meeting in San Diego. Dr. Donnenfeld noted that study results showed that daily intake of re-esterfied omega-3 fatty acids over a course of 12 weeks had a significant measurable improvement in dry eye symptoms. Oral supplementation is considered a primary therapy in treating dry eye syndrome, which is the leading cause of meibomian gland dysfunction. The advantage of re-esterfied triglyceride omega-3 fatty acids over triglycerides is that the omega-3 keeps its natural triglyceride structure, which means that it is more easily metabolized and absorbed. Dr. Donnenfeld believes that oral omega-3 supplementation is crucial in managing meibomian gland dysfunction and dry eye symptoms. VisiVite Dry Eye Relief TG-1000¬†utilizes high¬†potencies of the preferred triglyceride [TG] form of Omega-3 fatty acids. TG Omega-3s are the natural form found in whole fish that are up to 70% more absorbable than the synthetic ethyl esters form found in most other dry eye supplements.
