Protect your eyes and your vision
Do you spend your days in front of a screen? Are you sensing your vision worsening as you get older? It’s completely normal – and there are solutions available to ensure that your eyes stay healthy.
The eyes are among the organs that are most exposed to ultraviolet rays – which means that it is essential you protect them against oxidative stress, because UV rays cause oxidative reactions that can damage our eye tissue.
Our eyes are afflicted by an especially great number of oxidative stress sources. Among the factors that can lead to a wide range of eye diseases are excessive staring at screens, too much time indoors (leading to increased usage of near vision), and physiological aging in general. And modern societies have also seen the emergence of “computer vision syndrome” (with dry and fatigued eyes, headaches, and blurred vision) and well as increasing rates of myopia.
The aging of our eyes is also reflected in degenerative diseases such as AMD (age-related macular degeneration), which gradually blurs the center of one’s field of vision, and cataracts, a type of visual defect resulting in a clouding of the lens that may be exacerbated by UV exposure.
To minimize the risks of such diseases, it is essential that one wears good sunglasses with UV protection, in addition to limiting the time that one spends staring at screens in order to avoid eye fatigue over the long term. And these common sense tips can be enhanced by consuming microalgae that contain antioxidants that are capable of crossing the membranes that protect our eyes.
Algae – a natural, effective solution to protect your eyes
Astaxanthin, a red pigment derived from Haematococcus pluvialis algae, helps our eyes adjust and reduces both general eye fatigue and the effects of constantly looking at screens. It also acts against free radicals to help limit the development of AMD and glaucoma.
