Optim 3® Premier Formula for Ocular Nutrition NB™, the one and only to have been endorsed by Paul Harvey, is an advanced formula to help maintain eye health. It contains several important nutrients deemed essential to eye health but does not have Beta Carotene:

  • Vitamin C is an antioxidant found in fruits and vegetables. It supports the health of ocular blood vessels.*
  • Vitamin E is an antioxidant that supports age-related eye health issues and protects cells from free radical damage.*
  • Zinc is an essential mineral that helps produce melanin, a protective eye pigment.* Impaired vision has been linked to a zinc deficiency.
  • Ocucel® Lutein Complex contains Eyebright, an ancient botanical herb, antioxidants Bilberry Fruit Extract and L-Glutathione; and the widley researched 10mg of Lutein and 500mcg of Zeaxanthin to help support macular pigment levels.*

Research now shows that Lutein in conjunction with other antioxidants helps filter out visible blue light, a major cause of light damage to the eyes. Research suggests a minimum of 6-10 mg per day of lutein from dark green leafy vegetables and other sources is necessary to realize the health benefits of lutein. Most Americans don't consume enough foods rich in lutein in a normal day to promote complete eye health. With Ocular Nutrition, you can get the nutrients to promote eye health.*

Lutein Slows Vision Loss

Lutein is important for healthy vision and is found in dark-green leafy vegetables such as lettuce, kale, and spinach

A diet rich in dark-green leafy vegetables is essential for eye health, and specific nutrients such as lutein that are found in these foods may have particular benefits for people who suffer from eye disorders. A study in the Archives of Ophthalmology suggests that supplementing with lutein may slow vision loss in people who suffer from an eye disease known as retinitis pigmentosa.

Lutein plus vitamin A protects peripheral vision

Retinitis pigmentosa refers to a group of hereditary diseases that affect the retina of the eye. The condition often starts in adolescence and slowly progresses through adulthood leading to partial vision loss or sometimes blindness.

In this study, 225 non-smoking people aged 18 to 60 who had retinitis pigmentosa were randomly assigned to receive 12 mg of lutein or a control tablet (providing no treatment), and all participants received daily vitamin A (as 15,000 IU of retinyl palmitate). During the first year of the study participants were also advised to eat two 3-ounce servings of oily fish per week after a study showed benefit of DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) supplementation for retinitis pigmentosa.

Researchers followed the people in the study for four years, collecting information from annual eye exams and monitoring of blood serum lutein levels. Results showed:

  • People who took lutein had a slower decline of side (midperipheral) vision loss compared with the control group. Vision loss was significantly slower among those with the highest serum lutein levels compared with those who had the lowest.
  • There was no significant difference or treatment effect on the course of degeneration of central vision loss between the lutein and control group.

The study authors point out that a daily dietary recommendation for lutein has not been established and that most Americans eat 1 to 2 mg per day. Prior studies, however, have shown that 6 mg per day of lutein supplementation is associated with a reduced risk of cataracts and age-related macular degeneration.

The long-term safety of taking lutein supplementation has yet to be established. There are also a number of risks of taking high-dose vitamin A, so it is important to check with your doctor before taking dietary supplements in order to learn more about the risks and benefits.

Tips for eye health

  • Eat a balanced diet. Along with other nutrients, lutein is important for healthy vision and is found in dark-green leafy vegetables such as lettuce, kale, and spinach. This study is another good reason to strive for those five servings of fruits and vegetables every day.
  • Avoid unhealthy lifestyle behaviors. Smoking and drinking alcohol in excess may damage eye health, and both habits are also associated with lower serum lutein levels according to the study authors.
  • Wear sunglasses. Ultraviolet light from the sun can be damaging to healthy eyes but especially for people who suffer from eye disorders. Wear protective glasses and provide glasses for your children while enjoying the sunny outdoors.
