What Are Age-Related Eye Health Issues?

Age-related eye health issues destroy central vision and is the leading cause of severe vision loss in adults over age 55, affecting millions of Americans each year. While there is currently no cure for age-related eye health issues and its effects are irreversible, there are risks that can be mitigated.

Non-modifiable risk factors:
Age
Gender
Family History

Changing Your Age-Related Eye Health Outcome

Few people know that there’s a strong relationship between what you eat and your eye health. Maintaining a healthy diet is one of the simplest ways to preserve your vision. Eating more brightly colored fruits and vegetables as well as leafy greens can help reduce the risk of developing or worsening age-related eye health issues.
The Solution
A common care protocol for age-related eye health issues is nutritional supplementation. As studied in the National Eye Institute’s AREDS 2 Clinical Trial, those with age-related eye health issues need to take an eye vitamin with zeaxanthin, lutein, Vitamin C, Vitamin E, zinc, and copper to help promote eye health. In the trial, 90% of participants accompanied these nutrients with a multi-vitamin. Additionally, studies show that Omega-3s and Vitamin D3 are also beneficial in protecting aging eyes*.

What Makes Our Vitamins Stand Out?
Zeaxanthin
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.
Lutein
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.

We know what you’re thinking. “Where’s the proof?” We’ll spare you the long scientific rambling, but here are a few of the clinical results.
  • It has been shown that the functionality of the macula depends on the nutritional uptake of lutein and zeaxanthin and that it is inversely associated with the risk of age-related eye health. Read the study!

  • Regular consumption of DHA and EPA and fish was associated with a significantly decreased risk of incident age-related eye health issues. Read the study!

  • The purpose of this study is to evaluate whether dietary supplementation with the carotenoid zeaxanthin (Zx) raises macula pigment optical density (MPOD) and has unique visual benefits for patients with age-related eye health issues. Read the study!
