Supplements for Healthy Eyes

For healthy eyes, although the jury is still out on these compounds, and no specific studies have been performed to verify their effectiveness, if I can avoid macular degeneration and cataracts, I will find a supplement which contains the compounds lutein and zeaxanthin. These compounds are found in large amounts in the lens and retina. Here they function as antioxidants to potentially help protect from damage caused by unstable atoms known as free radicals, which can interact with and break down healthy tissue. For more information I would refer you to a website to Protect Your Eyesight .

This unproven solution may be a bit pricey for you, but the alternatives are not good. I have been taking it for over ten years. Make sure whatever product you pick has lutein and zeaxanthin in it.
