Nutrients and Eye Health

As we age, our eyes can lose vital nutrients. That’s why there’s
Ocuvite® Adult 50+,
a uniquely formulated eye vitamin and mineral supplement to help replenish vital nutrients that are important to help protect your eye health.
Here's some information you need to know about vital nutrients.
Lutein and Zeaxanthin are powerful antioxidants that our bodies cannot produce on their own. These vital nutrients help filter harmful blue light, the kind of light which can damage the macula, the region of the retina responsible for central vision.¹
Omega-3 is a family of fatty acids essential to maintaining overall health and especially important to help protect eye health.
Studies show that consuming foods rich in Omega-3s may help support proper function and health of your eyes as you age.²
