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.

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.
