The macula is responsible for providing acute, central vision. Antioxidants such as vitamin E, vitamin C, lutein and zeaxanthin are found in high concentrations in the eye. The eye is susceptible to oxidative damage as it is constantly exposed to the effects of light and oxygen. Due to their chemical structure, lutein and zeaxanthin have the ability to scavenge free radicals and may help to protect the macula from oxidative damage.
Supplementation with lutein and zeaxanthin may increase macular pigment density, associated with improved visual sensitivity at lower light levels.
Lutein and zeaxanthin may also help to filter high-energy blue light, aiding eye function and may help to protect the cells from light induced damage.
