    Yes, flaxseed oil is good for human eyes. Food and Drug Administration of United States have researched and proved 13 benefits of flaxseed oil to human body. Among that, the benefit it does to human eyes is included. The most helpful element of flaxseed oil is α-linolenic acid. It has been proved that when human body lacks α-linolenic acid, it will take longer for retina to recover from reflect reaction, and the eyesight will turn bad. But α-linolenic acid is quite rare in our daily food. Nowadays, common edible oil contains much more fat and less α-linolenic acid than needed. It leads to the imbalance of human body. Flaxseed oil could mend the imbalance effectively. It contains more α-linolenic acid and less fat. Besides to supplement α-linolenic acid so as to improve human vision, it also helps about losing weight and blood fat and so on. In general, flaxseed oil is quite healthy.
