It might be more than the hours you spend SLEEPING.
In 2020, US adults spent roughly 8 hours on using digital devices every day.
This continuous exposure to the screens can easily result in digital eye strain (DES).
60% of Americans experience it.
Some of the symptoms are:
- painful eyes
- exhausted eyes
- itchy eyes
- dry/teary eyes
- blurry vision
- sensitive to light
- … and even pain in the head/neck/shoulder area.
Why does our modern technology cause problems for our eyes?
Three words: Artificial blue light.
The light that brightens the screens of our digital devices generates high energy in short wavelengths.
This energy damages the neurons/cells in your eyes.
It also quickly evaporates the tear film on the surface of the eye, making it vulnerable to external stimuli.
Good news is…
DES can easily improve with professional quality nutraceuticals that protect your eyes.
Now you might be thinking, 'How do I know which eye supplements are high quality?'
That's easy. Read the ingredient list and see whether it contains the following:
AREDS 2 (Age-Related Eye Disease Study)
This is a clinically-researched combination that has been found beneficial for vision protection among people with age-related eye degeneration.
The main ingredients are Lutein, Zeaxanthin, Zinc, Copper, Vitamin C, and Vitamin E.
They protect your eye cells from free radical damage, as well as providing nutrients to your ocular neurons and helping with proper blood vessel generation.
The key ones to look for are taurine, L-glycine, NAC, alpha lipoic acid, eyebright powder, quercetin, lycopene, gluthathione, bilberry extract, and red grape extract.
Omega-3 contains DHA and EPA, which are both found in the retina in high quantities.
This means that they play an essential role in the structural composition of photoreceptors, which you need for seeing and responding to light!
Omega-3 also contributes to eye health by controlling inflammation related to eye diseases.
Make sure that the Omega-3 is in rTG form for high bioavailability and safety.
Now that you know which ingredients to look for, you can take these individually
… OR choose one that has all of the ingredients in one capsule!
