- Helps protect the macula
- Increases Macular Pigment Optical Density (MPOD)
- Protects retina from oxidative stress and cloudiness
- Blocks and filters damaging blue light
- Provides protection for those who spend hours looking at computer screens
Patient One Lutein plus Zeaxanthin supplies lutein and zeaxanthin, two naturally occurring plant pigments that are deposited in high quantities in the retina (macula) of the eye. These antioxidants support increased macular pigment--the yellow pigment at the macula believed to protect against age- related macular degeneration (AMD) and cataracts. Lutein and zeaxanthin filter harmful high-energy blue wavelengths of light (the most damaging spectrum of visible light) and help protect and maintain healthy cells in the eyes. Today's "digital lifestyle" increases high-energy blue light exposure risk, creating a new concern for all age groups. Blue light exposure is often associated with electronics with LED screens including computer monitors, smart phones, tablets, e-readers, and TV.
