Blueberry and Flax Seed Pancakes

blueberryI love brunch – especially pancakes at brunch! These pancakes will fill you up and they are delicious and healthy too! They have key ingredients that are really good for your eyes which is what makes them an eye food!

The secret ingredient that transforms them into an eye food is the ground flax seed. Flax seed has 4 key eye nutrients.

The first is Omega – 3 fatty acids (ALA form). The omega -3 – fatty acids are especially beneficial for people with dry eye. Dry eye is an inflammatory chronic condition and omega -3 fatty acids are amazing at reducing inflammation and have been shown to reduce dry eye symptoms.

Q&A with Dr. Theresa Taylor

Dr. Theresa Taylor Answers Your Eyecare Questions

Are there any day to day activities that can cause Dry Eye?

          Certainly age, gender and medications can be causative factors, but so can work environment (dry offices or factories), weather/seasons, and geographical location.

          What are some of the warning signs? How is it best detected?

          Warning signs can accumulate quite gradually over many years. Not
          uncommonly among contact lens wearers, they may incorrectly assume the
          lenses are old and need to be replaced. Other times the eyes water a bit
          more, or burn, or itch. Many, many cases are sub-clinical – they can only
          be diagnosed with the use of microscopic detection and special equipment!
          We look at tear quality, tear meniscus, and gland structure. Research has
          pointed towards the testing of tear osmolarity as a reliable indicator of
          the disease in terms of pre-treatment and post-treatment situations.
