Top Doctor Warns:
Aging Eyes Need More Than a Yearly Vision Exam
What do you appreciate most about your vision?
The smiles of your grandchildren? The splendor of Mother Nature? The work of famous artists?
Holistic medical physician Dr. David Brownstein knows that your continued ability to see what you love most depends on diligent and comprehensive vision support.
Support that goes beyond a yearly visit to the eye doctor.
And he’s troubled by something . . .
You see, fewer than 1 in 5 aging adults use supplemental nutrients to support their eye health.
It’s not your fault. Most doctors forget to mention the importance of supporting your eyes in this manner as you grow older.
So if you haven’t yet taken any steps to support the overall health of your eyes and vision — or if you use a supplement and don’t know if it’s really helping your eyes . . .
Please read this letter to see what Dr. Brownstein recommends for “mature” eyes.
The first thing you need to know is simple but true . . .
Your Aging Eyes Are Under Constant Assault
Meet Dr. Brownstein
David Brownstein, M.D., is medical director at Michigan’s respected Center for Holistic Medicine. He also edits the popular newsletter Dr. Brownstein’s Natural Way to Health and has authored a number of health books. A board-certified family physician, he focuses on resolving the root causes of disease, not just the symptoms.
Your eyes (and body) are under constant assault from sunlight, pollution, toxins, even waste products from normal metabolism.
All these factors can lead to a buildup of free radicals.
You’ve heard of free radicals — unstable particles that damage your cells and DNA. Unfortunately, this damaging process (known as oxidative stress) increases with aging.
And in a vicious cycle, free radicals perpetuate an imbalanced inflammatory process, which in turn creates even more free radicals.
Dr. Brownstein warns that, compared to most other organs, your eyes are particularly vulnerable to oxidative damage due to their constant exposure to light and their high metabolism.
What’s worse, this exposure to light does not merely refer to ultraviolet light.
The ‘Blue’ Challenge to Your Aging Eyes
Blue may be a pleasing color, but not so pleasant when it comes to your eyes — particularly once you hit midlife.
We’re talking about blue light.
Of course, you know that the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) rays can harm your skin. And you probably wouldn’t dream of going out into bright sunlight without wearing sunglasses.
Well, more recently, experts have started to recognize concerns related to
type of light — blue light.
You may not realize that ultraviolet and blue light are two different things.
While UV light is considered invisible, blue light is a color in the
light spectrum. These are the rays making the sky look blue.
In its natural form, your body needs a small amount of blue light from the sun to regulate your natural sleep and wake cycles.
So why should you be concerned about blue light exposure?
Blue Light in Everyday Life
Besides being present in sunlight, blue light is found in artificial light sources, such as fluorescent and LED lightbulbs.
Why Aging Adults Are
So Vulnerable to Increased Blue Light Exposure
- Internet use among seniors has risen steadily over the last 15 years
- Smartphone ownership has doubled in the senior population since 2013
- Tablet ownership continues to grow among older Americans
- Social media use is becoming more popular among older individuals
But the real problem stems from our exploding technology — the blue light bombarding you from electronic devices using LED illumination:
- Tablets, iPads, and e-readers
- Computer monitors and laptops
Studies show 80% of American adults use digital devices for more than two hours every day.
Blue light (also called HEV or high-energy visible light) contains the shortest wavelengths and the highest energy. That makes them flicker more, which can reduce visual contrast — the ability to perceive differences between objects and their background.
Flickering and glare can affect visual sharpness and clarity, and have been linked to eyestrain, fatigue, and headaches.
In fact, 59% of people surveyed report experiencing symptoms of digital eye strain.
Our eyes’ natural filters do not provide sufficient protection against blue light rays from the sun, let alone the blue light from all these devices.
Dr. Brownstein is also concerned about special cells in the retina, called photoreceptors.
Photoreceptors convert light into electrical signals, which travel to other cells in the retina and ultimately through the optic nerve to the brain. That’s where they’re processed into images you see.
Sadly, these photoreceptor cells display the highest rate of oxidation of
cells in the body.
So what’s the answer?
The One-Word Solution to Natural Eye Health Support
Dr. Brownstein and other experts know the solution to optimal eye health support can be summed up in one word: antioxidants.
Antioxidants gobble up free radicals that can have adverse effects on the healthy functioning of cells (including cells in your eye’s retina).
In a perfect world, you’d get sufficient antioxidants from your diet by eating vegetables and fruits. Unfortunately, studies show many older people consume less than the government-recommended levels of fruits and vegetables.
In fact, those over 60 consume the lowest quantity of antioxidants. Yet older individuals actually require more dietary antioxidants than younger people.
So if you are in an older age group, you are more likely to fall victim to an antioxidant shortfall. Plus, your eyes require
Not all antioxidants are created equal. Certain antioxidants excel at fighting certain types of free radicals — or work better under certain conditions.
With thousands of different antioxidants, how do you get the antioxidants that can help maintain healthy vision?
Well, Dr. Brownstein worked with experts at the premium supplement company Medix Select to create a new antioxidant-loaded eye health and vision support formula called
OPTIZO — Advanced Eye Health and Vision Support
contains a whopping 25 ingredients, but Dr. Brownstein made three antioxidants known as carotenoids the key ingredients in OPTIZO.
9 POWERFUL BENEFITS OF OPTIZO
- Supports Overall Eye Health & Vision
- Helps Filter Blue Light
- Helps Reduce Eyestrain & Fatigue From Digital Devices
- Supports Macular Health
- Reduces Oxidative Stress & Free Radical Damage With Antioxidant Activity
- Supports Normal MPOD (Macular Pigment Optical Density) Associated With Overall Visual Function
- Supports Visual Acuity & Adaptation to Low Light Conditions
- Supports Visual Recovery After Bright Light Exposure
- Improves Contrast Sensitivity in Retinal Health
These carotenoids — lutein, zeaxanthin, and meso-zeaxanthin — have demonstrated potent action against free radicals in the eyes.
Of 600 carotenoids found in nature, these three are the only ones found in high concentrations in the retina and its central portion, the macula.
Lutein and zeaxanthin are not produced by the body, so they must be gained through diet or supplementation.
Unfortunately, the average American intake of these carotenoids is
levels shown by research to be beneficial for eye health.
That’s why Dr. Brownstein chose Lutemax 2020®, a naturally-derived proprietary extract from the marigold plant.
It provides all three macular carotenoids at the same 5:1 ratio found in nature to optimally support eye health.
The LAMA studies (Lutein, Vision, and Mental Acuity) supported the benefits of all three macular carotenoids in Lutemax 2020.
And the BLUE study (Blue Light User Exposure), a six-month randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial, showed that Lutemax 2020 significantly improved visual performance and indicators of excessive screen use, including eye strain and fatigue.
But Dr. Brownstein didn’t stop there.
An Antioxidant ‘Cocktail’ for Aging Eyes
also includes the antioxidant nutrients vitamin C, vitamin E, and zinc, based on recommendations derived from landmark research studies sponsored by the National Eye Institute.
You’ll also find:
You’ll also find:
Bilberry. This flavonoid antioxidant supports the eye’s lens and macula (important for crisp central vision).
Lycopene. This carotenoid antioxidant fights free radicals and supports the eye’s macula.
Taurine. This amino acid and antioxidant helps reduce free radical oxidation in the macula.
Vitamin A. Another antioxidant offering eye support and important in night vision.
Vitamin D. Promotes normal inflammatory balance by fighting free radicals.
