Hi there, i currently eat an almost vegan diet (3 years) BUT i eat duck eggs from a local farm because i can't tolerate B12 supplements and duck eggs are surprisingly high in B12 (1 a day saw my B12 levels go back into normal range.) I know that means i'm not a vegan, but i don't know what you call a vegan that doesn't consume any dairy products but consumes eggs!
With that out the way i'd really appreciate some feedback from this forum about whether any of you have experienced sore eyes since adopting a vegetarian or vegan diet?
My eyes feel CONSTANTLY sore and they are bloodshot and grey to look at, almost like they have shrunk into their sockets? My doctor has run all the usual tests but can't find anything in my results that would explain it.
They've been this way for quite a while now and i've tried all sorts of things like, increasing my consumption of flax and chia for Omega 3s, increasing my consumption of iodized salt for iodine, because you sometimes here about Omega 3s and Iodine having a role to play in good eye health.
Anyway would be great to hear any advice/stories people might have in relation to vegan and vegetarian diets and eye health.
