Many eye care providers recommend supplementation to fill this all-too-common dietary gap. EyePromise is the #1 doctor-recommended eye vitamin brand, and we’ve created a line of vitamins dedicated to people like you looking for a solution for their screen time suffering.
This critical antioxidant is chosen by the retina to protect central vision. Additionally, zeaxanthin is accumulated in the fovea (center of the retina) 2 times more than lutein. While the eye itself chooses to include more zeaxanthin in its own protection, most eye vitamins choose to match the ratio found in the diet, which is 5 to 1 lutein to zeaxanthin. EyePromise recognizes the importance and scarcity of zeaxanthin and, therefore, chooses to include 4x more than other products.
While zeaxanthin is extremely important, lutein is no scrub. This antioxidant plays an important role in protecting vision from dangerous blue light, and it's been found to help support many other parts of the body.
