Contrast sensitivity – distinguishing minor differences in objects like being the subtle slopes on a golf green.
While these nutrients are found in food sources, they are surprisingly scarce in the Standard American Diet. Even if we do eat our share of leafy greens and brightly colored vegetables, we’d need to eat 20 ears of corn a day to get the amount of zeaxanthin our eyes need to improve and maintain visual performance.
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 to improve their performance from the eyes down. Trusted by collegiate, professional, and Olympic athletes, EyePromise’s performance vitamins are of the highest quality and NSF Certified for Sport.
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 recongnizes 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.
