Does eating vitamin supplements help in treating myopia?

Doctor's Answers (2)

I don’t know if there are very strong evidences for treating myopia with vitamin supplements but it is generally very good for your health as long as there isn’t an overdose.

Ultimately, it still boils down to proper myopia management such as outdoor activities and balanced diet, but there is no need to binge on vitamin supplements to prevent myopia.

So far, taking vitamin supplements have not been shown to help in treating
myopia. The only proven strategy in controlling myopia progression in kids
is spending time in an outdoor environment.

However, having a balanced diet from varied sources is generally good for a
healthy and active lifestyle, including in the young. For picky eaters,
taking a vitamin supplement is beneficial in this regard.
