Are you at risk of developing Macular Degeneration? Risk factors include age, family history, light skin & eye color, smoking, poor diet and high body mass index. Our newest instrument, the QuantifEye MPS II can measure your macular pigment levels.
Why is this important?
Macular pigment is found in the center of the macula, or the fovea at a natural 2:1 ratio. Healthy macular pigment acts as “internal sunglasses” to protect against harmful blue light that enters the eye and negatively impacts the visual cells responsible for central and peripheral vision. Low macular pigment is a key risk factor for AMD, the leading cause of vision loss over age 50. Additionally, high macular pigment improves visual performance, including ability to see clearly (especially in fine detail situations), contrast sensitivity, light sensitivity and glare recovery.
What can be done?
78% of the population has less than optimal macular pigment, but significant increases can be achieved through nutritional intake and supplements containing Zeaxanthin and Lutein; such as EyePromise Restore, AREDS and DVS supplements.
