Vitreous & Retina
The vitreous is the area anterior to the retina. It contains a gel -like substance that thins as we age. The layer of tissue lining the inside of the back of the eye is called the retina. It contains millions of photoreceptor cells which convert light into images. The macula is where light comes to a focus -
it has mainly cone cells for color vision.
The vitreous is a clear gelatin-like substance between the lens of the eye and the retina. Light rays, carrying images to the brain, must pass through this clear gel on the way to the retina. The retina transmits information (carried by light rays) to the brain via the optic nerve. When disease or injury causes clouding of the vitreous or damage to the retina, the result is a partial or complete loss of vision.

Simply the act of letting light pass through the eye and hit the retina increases the exposure of eye tissue to a range of different light-generated free radicals. For this reason, it makes sense to optimize intake of all eye nourishing nutrients every day, especially as we age.
Lutein is a carotenoid whose job it is to protect the retina from the free radical damage it undergoes constantly. Does optimizing lutein intake throughout life protect the retina as we age? Conclusive prospective studies have yet to be performed that can definitively answer this question, but population studies are suggestive of benefit. The lutein used in OcuForce™ is naturally derived from marigolds, not synthetically created in a chemical plant. Visit nei.nih.gov to learn more
Designs for Health never uses synthetic carotenoids in its products. We believe natural carotenoids offer a superior spectrum of benefits.
