    The answer is yes. Eye pressure is also known as ocular hypertension. It is a common condition in people over 40. It really do work for lowering your eye pressure by taking food contain rich omega 3. The secrets of omega 3 is it contains an anti-inflammatory effect,and nutritional supplementation, which can really help lower the eye pressure effectively by improving blood flow to the retina and optic nerve. Some patients in the study, got relief from the omega 3. And to make sure that you take enough omega 3 in, you should have diets which contains a highly amount of omega 3, such as fish oil or flax seed oil or krill oil, among which krill oil is the most effective form of omega 3. If you insist on trying, you may need 10 to 14 weeks at most to see the full benefits of omega 3. Hope these suggestions can be helped.

    Yes, Taking food with Omega-3 Fatty Acids can help people lower eye pressure. That because Omega-3 Fatty Acids contain antioxidants and bioflavenoids that can help people reduce many eye diseases such as dry eyes. According to an article in U.S. News, food with rich omega-3 can enrich nerve cells in the retina thus to keep eye health. So, you can try to lower your eye pressure by taking imega 3 rich food suc as raw tofu, fish and flaxseeds etc. Good luck.

    Ok, It looks like that you are suffering from high eye pressure, which might lead to a lot of problems with your eyes. Anyway, omega 3 is mainly used to keep our body healthy, it has little things to do with eye pressure. But my advice for you is to get some eye drops designed for high eye pressure. And you must take regular rest and healthy and balanced diet to tackle the problem. Hope you recover in time.

    The term ocular hypertension usually refers to any situation in which the pressure inside the eye, called intraocular pressure, which also has a commonly name-eye pressure. It is really a big problem because blurry vision can be easily caused. Omega 3 has a prominent effect on lowing eye pressure, my elder sister told me that received oral omega-3 dietary supplementation consisting of two 1000-mg capsules 3 times a day, eye pressure can be controlled.
