Dry eye is a leading reason many patients stop wearing contacts.

Approximately 50% of contact lens wearers suffer from dry eye, and 1 out of 4 reduce wear time due to discomfort. Of those who do reduce wear time, it is estimated that 50% do so specifically because of discomfort caused by dry eye.

 

 

EyePromise EZ Tears can:

  • Reduce contact lens discomfort from dry eye
  • Increase contact lens wear time
  • Minimize need for topical steroids
  • Provide relief from dry eye in as little as 1-2 weeks

 

More than 3 million eyes have been accurately measured with the QuantifEye MPOD measurement instrument, which is utilized in our practice. Having your MPOD (Macular Pigment Optical Density) measured is very important as healthy MPOD reduces a key risk factor for Age-Related Macular Degeneration (low macular pigment); protects the photoreceptors in the back of the eye from harmful blue light; and can improve visual performance including acuity, light sensitivity, glare, and contrast sensitivity.  The MPOD exam takes only a few minutes, is non-invasive, and your MPOD can be remeasured in 6 months to demonstrate that  supplementation can positively affect your macular health.

AMD (Age Related Macular Degeneration) Risk Factors:                                                

• Age

• Family History of AMD

• Smoking (past or present)

• Low Macular Pigment

• Poor Dietary Habits                                                                              

• Light Skin and Eyes

• High Body Mass Index

• Female Gender

• Cardiovascular Disease

 

Protect and Enhance Your Vision: Macular pigment in the back of your eye acts like “internal sunglasses” to protect and enhance your vision. Macular Pigment Optical Density (MPOD), is important for 3 specific reasons:

(1) mitigates a key risk factor for Age-related Macular Degeneration (AMD) (2) absorbs harmful blue light from reaching visual cells in the back of your eye (3) improves visual performance in many ways for a variety of everyday functions.

 

 

What’s your number? Having your MPOD measured is important as it determines your MPOD health with a numeric score, and whether nutrition and/or supplementation are increasing your MPOD when you get re-measured. It’s fast and easy! AMD Risk Low MPOD is a key risk factor for Age-Related Macular Degeneration, the leading cause of severe vision loss over age 50. AMD is irreversible and has no cure. Blue Light Healthy MPOD protects visual cells in the back of the eye from harmful blue light from sources like TVs, smartphones, tablets, and the sun. Visual Performance Healthy MPOD can enhance vision for activities like driving, reading, needlepoint, and sports. MPOD (Macular Pigment Optical Density) can be increased with EyePromise® eye vitamins, which contain the highest levels of dietary Zeaxanthin – an important antioxidant and protective pigment scientifically proven to protect and enhance vision.

 

 

EyePromise is the only brand Guaranteed to Increase MPOD!* Ask your EyeCare Professional today for further details. *Based on 2 Zeaxanthin-based EyePromise softgels every day for 6 months - if your MPOD does not increase, you are entitled to a full refund! Some moments are just too important to miss. Don’t let Age-related Macular Degeneration (AMD) affect your view. What is AMD? AMD is the leading cause of severe vision loss in adults over the age of 55, and affects millions of Americans each year. AMD is caused by deterioration of the central portion of the retina, also known as the macula, which is responsible for central vision. It’s never too early to take steps to preserve your vision.
