Taking care of your eyes has always been important, but as technology—and screens—become more and more a part of our daily lives, we’re challenging our eyes like never before.
The light from computers and the nighttime glow of smartphones can tire eyes, especially when you’re looking at them constantly. Thankfully, it’s easy to support vision with carotenoids like lutein.**
As the principal carotenoid found in the macula, a central area of the retina, lutein plays a big role in supporting your sight.** Specifically, lutein helps filter out the damaging blue light we expose ourselves to when using computers.**
In a study conducted in China with healthy subjects who regularly used computers, those who supplemented with Lutein had better contrast sensitivity in a visual performance test. Contrast sensitivity is a key factor in vision during low-light situations, such as night driving.**
