Omega-3s & Eye Health
Omega-3s are important for eye health. The omega-3 DHA is found in large amounts in the retina of the eye, the part of the eye responsible for seeing under different lighting conditions. While omega-3s are important for eye health throughout life, they are especially critical during pregnancy and infancy for the developing baby.
Infant visual development
Omega-3s play an important role in eye health and specifically infant eye development. The European Union’s Food Safety Authority (EFSA) acknowledges this strong science by allowing a health claim on DHA’s role in supporting normal visual development in the fetus and for infants up to 12 months of age.
