After treatment of retinal detachment, what are the key supplements for eye health?

Question by Frank: After treatment of retinal detachment, what are the key supplements for eye health?
This is after the eye surgeons have done all they could to help my retinal detachment. I’m just wondering if there are certain vitamins, minerals, or omega acids that I should take in order to help my situation, possibly help my situation and improve my vision.

For general eye health you can probably take a good multivitamin that provides what you may need, but Bausch & Lomb and other companies have put together capsules that support eye health also.

Omega 3, Lutein, Vitamin A, Beta Carotene, Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Vitamin B2, Zinc, Copper & Bilberry Extract.
Check with your Doctor to make sure it’s safe to take any vitamins along with other medications you may be taking.

Best of Luck with your surgery.

there are supplements that promote eye health but they are not necessary.
and after the surgery what vision you get back during the recovery process is what vision will return. no pill is going to magically give you full sight again.

honestly i would just go about your daily life. follow your eye dr’s instructions as to what to do and not do and go to the appointments as scheduled to make sure that the retina remains stable.
