Glare from oncoming headlights or computer screens can be quite bothersome,  It is a very common complaint we get when patients come in for their annual eye exams.  The typical recommendations we have used have been polarized sunglasses or anti-reflective coatings.  Until recently these were the best solutions we could offer.  Now there is an eye vitamin that has shown to improve glare symptoms of patients.  That eye vitamin is called MacuHealth.

Oncoming Headlights – Common Glare

MacuHealth has a different formulation compared to other eye vitamins in that it includes all 3 carotenoids.  The three carotenoids are Lutein, Zeaxanthin and Meso-Zeaxanthin.  Many other products only have two, Lutein and Zeaxanthin.  The benefit to having all three is an ability to restore some macular pigment from the macula in the eyes.  The macula needs the pigment in order to function its best.  Conditions like Macular Degeneration show a loss of macular pigment as the disease progresses which impact vision.

Studies have shown that taking MacuHealth daily can increase macular pigmentation levels and in turn can improve visual function.  One of the things that can inhibit visual function is glare from different light sources.  To reduce your glare symptoms the most it is advised to still use the different coatings on your eyeglasses and to also take MacuHealth eye vitamins.

MacuHealth is available to purchase in office.  If you would like to order some today or have your eyes examined to see if MacuHealth eye vitamins can work for you please call (860) 233-2020 today.
