Can Eye Supplements Really Help Your Eyesight?

The answer to this question is simple. In conjunction with a balanced diet, regular exercise, and a healthy lifestyle, eye vitamins can help support your eyesight. 

But what vitamins to take? Indeed, this is a difficult choice to make as the market for eye vitamins is crowded, with a myriad of products competing for health claims. Many of them are not backed by science or created by a board-certified ophthalmologist. Luckily for you, eyetamins is here to shed some light (and science) on how and what eye vitamins help eyesight.

Vitamins to Help Eyesight?

blue eyes

You have probably heard someone (your grandmother) say, “Eat your carrots, they are good for your eyes.” And I know you probably ignored them. But they were (for the most part) right...

The truth is, many vitamins and minerals can help maintain eye function, protect against blue light and reduce the progression of age-related degenerative diseases of the eye. Indeed, in this illuminating video, Dr. Allen, a leading eye specialist, names taking vitamins and minerals as the second most effective tool for helping to ease vision loss.


Vitamin A

The first of these vitamins is Vitamin A. Without sufficient levels of the stuff, the conjunctiva - which is normally blemish-free - can develop a pearly white spot called a Bitot’s spot (don't ask us where this name came from). In fact, Vitamin A deficiency can reduce your ability to see at night and, in extreme cases, lead to blindness.

And this is where carrots come in: they are jam-packed with beta carotene and zeaxanthin which the body absorbs and converts into Vitamin A. Luckily, most adults in the developed world do not need Vitamin A supplements since they get enough from their diet.

Vitamin C

Vitamin C is an ingredient that should be part of any comprehensive eye vitamin formula. That is because a clinical trial by the NIH showed that Vitamin C can be beneficial for eye health and vision. Check out this Q&A with medical professionals on the benefits of Vitamin C.

 Omega-3 Fatty Acids

When it comes to Omega-3 Fatty Acids - found mainly in fish, namely Tuna, Mackerel, and Salmon, alongside leafy greens, vegetables, and nuts - most of us do not consume enough. Indeed, our diets are decisively lacking in Omega-3.

Why this is relevant to eye health is that Omega-3 contains DHA, which plays a vital role in reducing inflammation and helping cells repair and revitalize themselves, especially after damage from light exposure and aging, can also help dry eye and vision.


Not to be confused with blueberry, Bilberry is famed for improving night vision and eyesight. While this claim is not entirely true, what we do know is that they are loaded with antioxidants that combat harmful free radicals, which may play a role in fighting macular degeneration.

Do You Need Supplements?

Diet should always be your primary source for obtaining the vitamins and minerals your eyes (and body) needs. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle and eating antioxidant-rich foods can help protect against damage to your cells and will contribute to improving your eye health.

But, and this is a big but, according to the National Eye Institute, the high levels of vitamins and minerals needed to realize these benefits is difficult to achieve from diet alone. Hence the need for supplements.

Eyetamins offers a range of supplements that are packed full of the vitamins and minerals you need. With different products geared towards adults and children, they will support your vision and may help stave off potential eye-related problems in the future.


Tailored to children, Nurtureyes® nurtures eye health, defends against blue light and even supports brain development. Indeed, it is the first natural eye care supplement for kids to directly address the needs of the modern-day. It supports your child’s eye and brain health with these powerful super nutrients. 

The first is Lutein. Derived from the Marigold flower, lutein is the most important health nutrient known to humankind. It bolsters visual and cognitive development and acts as a primary filter of high-energy blue light from digital screens.

Secondly comes Zeaxanthin. The sister of Lutein, it supports brain and visual development and strengthens the macula, the epicenter of your child's vision. Finally, meso-zeaxanthin. This newly discovered and rare super-nutrient is crucial for boosting and protecting central vision.

Carefully sourced, 100% natural, vegan, non-GMO, nurtureyes® is backed by science and clinically proven to support eye health at every age. 

Vision Support

For those looking to maximize their visual performance and gain a sharper edge in life, Vision Support is an ultra-strength eyesight and brain formula. It contains Vitamin C, Bilberry, Vitamin E, Zinc, Saffron, alongside Zeaxanthin, Meso-Zeaxanthin, and Lutein.

So what? Well, thanks to this formula, Vision Support promotes contrast sensitivity to pick up on fine detail, visual processing speed, visual reaction time, visual processing speed, visuomotor ability, visual tracking, motion detection, depth perception, and photostress recovery.

In short, it is a powerful tool to support and bolster your eye health. After all, vision is as important as life itself. Watch this 14 day eyetamins transformation and see for yourself.


People Also Ask:

What are the Best Vitamins for Eyesight?

As we have covered vitamins A, E, C, alongside Lutein, Zeaxanthin, and Omega-3 Fatty Acids, are important for your eye health. 

Can Lutein Improve Vision?

Lutein is a carotenoid with fantastic anti-inflammatory properties. A large body of evidence demonstrates that lutein has several beneficial effects, especially on eye health. To be precise, it is known to be part of a formula for age-related macular degeneration which is the leading cause of blindness and vision impairment.

Are Eye Vitamins Worth Taking?

Absolutely, many of the ingredients in eye vitamins have been tested and clinically proven to improve eyesight in children as well as adults.


We started out with the question: can eye supplements really improve your eyesight? In tandem with a balanced diet, healthy diet, and plenty of exercises, we found that they are decisively effective. This is especially because your diet often cannot cater to the range of vitamins and minerals your eyes need to stay happy and healthy!
