    Yes, Omega-3 Fatty Acid is good for our eyes. We know, Omega-3 Fatty Acid can not be synthesized by the human body, and it must be obtained from food. From pharmacological, it provides protection to our eyes for the retinal nerve protection and reducing the angiogenesis. In short, it can provide nutrition to visual nerve cells, prevent and reduce juvenile myopia and age-related eye diseases.
