Light passes through the cornea, at the front of the eye, through the pupil (the space at the centre of the coloured iris), through the lens to hit the retina which is the tissue at the back of the eye. A message is then sent through the optic nerve to the brain to tell the brain what it is looking at. The lens is suspended and held in position by zonules, which are small fibres that pull on the ciliary muscles. When we naturally focus (or accommodate) the ciliary muscles contract and pull on the zonules which then pull on the edges of the lens and change its shape.
- At birth the lenses are clear and flexible and the ciliary muscles strong and can easily change the shape of the lens.
- After 40 there is a loss of elasticity of the lens, weakened ciliary muscles, and changes that occur in the zonules causing them to become looser, with a resultant decrease in the ability to focus on near objects (Presbyopia).
- After 50 there is a greater risk of developing cataracts, glaucoma and macular degeneration. Cataracts occur when there is a clouding of the lens as normally ordered proteins become clumped, making the lens opaque, so that no light can pass through. Glaucoma is associated with pressure building up in the eyes and resultant damage to the optic nerves. This causes peripheral vision loss and can lead to blindness. Macular degeneration is a condition resulting from deterioration of the macular (centrally located area at the back of the retina), due to hereditary and environmental factors and can be exaggerated by smoking, obesity or ultraviolet light exposure.

The OptimEyes formula includes Vitamin C, Selenium and Zinc.
Vitamin C is added as an antioxidant. Both low and high dose supplementation with Vitamin C has been found to be associated with decreased incidence rate of glaucoma.
Selenium is also incorporated as studies are evaluating its importancein ocular health; in particular for glaucoma.
Zinc is included as a result of the latest AREDS 2 study. The study concluded that supporting the supplementation of zinc along with vitamins A and C can slow Age Related Macular Degeneration.
We have also include Copper as this is a formula which contains zinc, that is designed for long term use. Copper is added when there is long term supplementation of zinc as zinc reduces the amount of copper that the body absorbs.
Recommended dose: 1 capsule, 3 times a day.
