Questions 1

Does eating vitamin supplements help in treating myopia?

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.
