Do your eyes feel tired, dry or irritated after long periods on your phone or computer?
These are common symptoms of short-term digital eye strain, which can be attributed to blue light damage. Blue light is the most harmful light to our eyes and we're exposed to it every day in the forms of sunlight, artificial light and digital devices.1,2 While it's impossible to completely avoid exposure to blue light, there are ways to protect your eyes today and maintain healthy vision for a lifetime.
Blue light is a component of visible light and we are exposed to it without realizing it. Blue light is not easily filtered by our eyes and overexposure can negatively impact vision.3,4
Nearly every source of light—whether natural or artificial —emits blue light.1,2,5 Your eyes are exposed to it all day long, both indoors and out. Some blue light is healthy, but overexposure can lead to long-term damage. A significant source of blue light is everyday technology, including phones, TVs, tablets and computers. As the use of these devices increases, the risk to our eyes increases too.1,2
Found naturally in certain fruits and vegetables, lutein and zeaxanthin are the ONLY nutrients deposited specifically into the eyes to help filter harmful blue light.11-13 The human body doesn't naturally produce lutein or zeaxanthin so it's important to get these nutrients through supplements and foods.14
Studies suggest that healthy adults need 10 mg of lutein and 2 mg of zeaxanthin each day.16,17 The majority of the population gets only 1-2 mg lutein from diet alone.18 Taking a daily vitamin with lutein and zeaxanthin can help protect your eyes.
Getting enough lutein from food alone is difficult. FloraGLO Lutein makes it easy: the natural, plant-based ingredient sourced from marigold flowers formulates into a variety of supplement forms and functional foods.
Look for FloraGLO Lutein on the label of eye health vitamins and supplements to protect your eyes for years to come.
