You're here because you have eye irritation or dryness, right? Well, you can stop having that problem. The iTear100 stops your dry eye in just seconds per use, AND you'll need it less as you use it! Visit to learn more!

We understand how challenging dealing with dry eye syndrome can be. It's not just about the discomfort-those red, itchy, tired eyes can be a real obstacle in your daily life. That's why Olympic Ophthalmics is dedicated to offering solutions that not only alleviate symptoms but also promote overall eye health. And guess what? The path to relief may just start on your plate!

When it comes to combatting dry eye, your diet plays a surprisingly significant role. Consuming the right foods can provide your body with the nutrients it needs to produce more tears and improve the quality of your tears. Omega-3 fatty acids are especially beneficial, as they can help reduce inflammation and support eye health. Cold-water fish, such as salmon and mackerel, are fantastic sources of omega-3s, but if fish isn't your thing, don't worry-flaxseeds and walnuts are great plant-based options.

Not to forget, staying well-hydrated is essential for maintaining sufficient tear production. We need to keep those fluids coming-not just water, but you can also include hydrating foods like cucumbers and watermelons in your diet. These foods are not just refreshing; they are packed with water to help you stay hydrated throughout the day.

Omega-3s are the superstars of eye nutrition. Including more of these in your meals can make a big difference:

  • Salmon: A delicious way to get a dose of DHA and EPA, two types of omega-3 fats that are key for moisture.
  • Chia seeds: An easy-to-add ingredient for smoothies or breakfast bowls.
  • Walnuts: A great snack to keep your eyes feeling less dry.

Don't love guzzling water all day? No problem. Add these to your diet for a hydration boost:

  • Cucumbers: With a high water content, they're perfect in a salad or as a snack.
  • Watermelon: Sweet and hydrating, it's like a treat that's good for your eyes.
  • Coconut water: A natural beverage that's both refreshing and hydrating.

Looking for snacking options that are both tasty and eye-friendly? Nuts and seeds are not only convenient but packed with vitamin E, which can protect cells in the eyes from free radicals. Almonds, sunflower seeds, and hazelnuts are particularly good choices. But hey, we get it, sometimes you crave something sweet. Dark chocolate is also rich in flavonoids that can help your eyes. Just ensure it's high in cacao and low in sugar.

And don't forget about fruits! Citrus fruits, strawberries, and bell peppers are excellent sources of vitamin C, which is also crucial in maintaining eye health. iTear100 recommends having a colorful plate the more colors, the wider range of protective antioxidants and nutrients for your peepers.

Here are some awesome nuts and seeds to keep your eyes on the prize:

  • Almonds: A handful a day can contribute to your daily vitamin E needs.
  • Flaxseeds: Grind them up and sprinkle over your yogurt or oatmeal.
  • Sunflower seeds: They're great on salads or as a midday snack.

Sweeten your day and support your eyes with these fruity delights:

  • Oranges: A classic source of vitamin C, perfect for breakfast or a snack.
  • Berries: Whether it's strawberries, blueberries, or raspberries, they're all great picks.
  • Kiwi: This little fruit packs a big vitamin C punch.

We can't talk about eye health without mentioning the powerhouses that are leafy green vegetables. Spinach, kale, and collard greens are loaded with lutein and zeaxanthin-two nutrients that can help filter harmful light and prevent eye damage. Plus, they're versatile! Throw them in a smoothie, mix them into an omelet, or create a delightful salad. Who knew that something so green could have such a golden impact on dry eyes?

iTear100 is all about offering you effective, holistic approaches to manage dry eye syndrome, and what better way than through the foods you love? Remember, it's not just about what you put in your eyes, but also what you put on your plate!

These greens are not just for rabbits-try adding these to your meals for a nutrient punch:

  • Spinach: Saut it or blend it into your smoothie, it's as versatile as it is beneficial.
  • Kale: Make kale chips or toss them raw in a salad. Either way, your eyes will thank you.
  • Collard Greens: Great for wraps or as a cooked side dish.

Every meal is an opportunity to nourish your eyes. Consider some of these options:

  • Broccoli: Roast it or steam it, it's a cruciferous veggie that's great for your vision.
  • Peas: Easy to add to any dish and full of eye-healthy nutrients.
