The Importance of Carotenoids

Macular pigment in the eye is composed of the three macular carotenoids with meso-zeaxanthin in the central retina. The pigment is able to filter damaging visible, or blue, light and protect against oxidative stress which can lead to eye diseases such as Age-related Macular Degeneration.

The image shows the structure of the eye and the macula.
Macular pigment is located at the macula, the central part of the retina responsible for optimal spatial vision.

Healthy macular pigment is also important for optimal vision and for those dependent upon first class vision for their professions or sporting lives.
