There has been much speculation over the reliability and value of ocular supplements for the benefit of patients suffering from various conditions such as Dry Amd and DED (Dry Eye Disease). There have even been suggestions that conditions like glaucoma may respond to certain supplements and nutrients.

There are a large number of papers surrounding the topic and many do seem to conflict on what is considered effective and what is considered, at best, a waste of patient money and, at worst, malpractice.

This presentation aims to try and bring some clarity on the current situation regarding what may be considered a viable support to patient management and what needs to be avoided. We’ll consider current products and regulations. Clinicians should feel more empowered after the lecture on how best to approach supplements in their practice for their patients benefit.
