    Omega 3 can improve our eyesight, make our head smarter, etc. Most of the fish oil or cod liver oil contain omega 3. So, intaking more fish oil or cod liver oil can make our eyes healthier. Blepharitis is caused by infection, you won't get blepharitis that easy if you intake omega 3 for a long time, because it provide us the mechanism to prevent bacterium.

    Blepharitis is an ocular condition characterized by chronic inflammation of the eyelid, the severity and time course of which can vary. When one suffers blepharitis, the individual will has redness of the eyelids and vision may reduce gradually day by day. Red eyes also follows. Flaking of skin on the lids is one of causes for blepharitis. Omega 3 has a prominent effect on healing blepharitis, my elder sister told me that received oral omega-3 dietary supplementation consisting of two 1000-mg capsules 3 times a day, blepharitis can be controlled. I have found a study which about omega 3 and blepharitis and this study said that omega-3 FA dietary supplementation can have a beneficial effect on blepharitis. Some other ways also work for blepharitis, such as applying a warm, dry, new and clean compress to soften lids and remove oils, avoid make-up until you're fine.
