EyePromise® Eye Vitamins Supports Save Your Vision Month

To support Save Your Vision Month, EyePromise, has developed free learning resources and online assessments to help consumers evaluate AMD risk factors and visual performance challenges.

Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD) is the leading cause of severe vision loss in adults over age 50, according to the AOA. Understanding the risk factors allows consumers to be proactive in preserving healthy vision.

Visual performance challenges become more apparent as people age, and things like glare while driving at night and bright light sensitivity are affected by eye health.

The free learning resources and assessments can be found at www.eyepromise.com/saveyourvision where visitors can view videos, download articles, patient education guides, and also sign-up for the EyePromise inSight newsletter with a chance to win EyePromise products, coupons, and other valuable prizes.

Caring for eye health and vision quality doesn't end with buying a new pair of glasses, says Chris Barber, President of ZeaVision®, the parent company of EyePromise. Nutrition and annual eye exams are extremely important for maintaining optimal ocular health.

"So many of us take healthy sight for granted. We typically don't even think about eye care until a problem occurs," said Barber. "Eye exams can actually tell a great deal about a person's general state of health and that's why the AOA's Save Your Vision Month is so important." 

According to ZeaVision co-founder, Dr. Dennis Gierhart, who holds a PhD in Food and Industrial Microbiology from Cornell University, a growing body of scientific evidence proves, "specific fruits and vegetables, and supplementation of Zeaxanthin (zee-uh-zan-thin) and Lutein can protect and enhance vision by increasing the density of macular pigment in the back of the eye."

Gierhart adds, "Macular pigment filters harmful light and protects the photo-receptors, which are responsible for vision. Low macular pigment, along with age and family history, is a key risk factor in Age-Related Macular Degeneration and may also decrease visual performance."

Lutein is readily available in the diet through dark, green leafy vegetables, but Zeaxanthin is found in trace amounts in vegetables like corn, and is not produced within the body. Therefore, supplementation is often necessary to replenish this key protective pigment.

EyePromise eye vitamins contain the highest levels of natural dietary Zeaxanthin, and is the only brand guaranteed to increase MPOD (macular pigment optical density).  More information on can be found at www.eyepromise.com.

This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happe...
