In clinic, I routinely recommend 1000-2000mg of Omega 3 (EPA + DHA) for dry eye management.   See the Blog about Confusing Omega 3 labels for full information.

Here is a convenient table that contrasts various mEYEspa Omega 3 options to get to our minimum therapeutic recommendation of 1000mg/day (EPA + DHA rTG form)

Most important TIP...  Take with food!  Without food, even the best Omega 3 will not absorb properly and not deliver the desired result!
