ABSTRACT
The article presents a study that investigates the efficacy of zeaxanthin in protecting the fovea and preserving the macular health of patients in the U.S. Studies show that the blue light filtering attributes of macular pigment (MP) are correlated with enhanced visual function. Moreover, researchers also found that zeaxanthin and lutein supplementation can boost the macular pigment optical density (MPOD) and glare tolerance.
