The Gift of Sight
Your eyes are your window to the world. Outside of good health itself, nothing is more precious than the gift of sight. Everyone sees differently, in part due to differences in the acuity of our vision and the general state of our health, but we owe it to ourselves to do everything we can to maintain optimal vision.
As we age, there is a general decline in acuity of vision. One of the most important reasons for the loss of visual acuity over time is the damage caused by environmental factors. The eyes are not sequestered inside the body as the heart or kidneys are. Except when we are asleep, our eyes are constantly exposed to environmental factors such as air pollution, dryness, and oxidative damage from sunlight. There are things that we can do to maintain eye health. Firstly, we can reduce the amount of damaging environmental effects we subject our eyes to each day. For example, we can minimise exposure to harsh sunlight with quality sunglasses, especially while driving, and if we work at a
computer terminal for long periods, breaks of just a minute or two of looking at distant objects can reduce eye strain significantly.
Secondly, today’s lifestyles and working conditions result in ever-increasing demand for defense from oxidative damage. We can help to maintain proper functioning of our eyes by providing nutritional supplementation, especially antioxidants to counter free-radical damage.

As we age, the world can take a toll on your eyes daily. Between air pollution, dryness and oxidative damage from the sun, your eyes can take a beating without you even knowing it. Common activities such as staring at a computer screen all day or not wearing proper UV protective glasses can put a strain on your eyes which may lead to deteriorating effects.
To combat these effects, it’s recommended to give your eyes the proper supplemental nutrients to fight those free-radicals. Eyes are organs, just like your kidney or liver. And just like other organs in your body, they can benefit from formulated nutritional supplements.*
The best way to understand how Visionex can support proper long-term eye health is to understand how our eyes work. As light passes through our cornea, pupil and then lens, it lands on the back of the eye on the retina. The retina then translates the light into electrical signals to be processed by the brain.
In the center of the retina is the macula which contains a yellow pigment that absorbs excessive blue and ultraviolet light. Acting as built-in “sunglasses,” the macula’s yellow pigment protects the retina with the antioxidant carotenoids, lutein and zeaxanthin.
Lutein and zeaxanthin are the same naturally occurring protectorates found in plants. Even though plants require sunlight for photosynthesis, they are shielded from excessive solar radiation by naturally produced lutein and zeaxanthin.
The same protection plants use to protect themselves from potentially damaging blue lights is found in Visionex.*
Lutein is believed to function in two ways: first as a filter of high-energy blue light, and second as an antioxidant that quenches light-induced free radicals and reactive oxygen species.*
Zeaxanthin is a modified form of lutein and is an even more powerful antioxidant against free radicals.*
In addition to being formulated with lutein and zeaxanthin, Visionex has bilberry extract, vitamin C and zinc to maintain healthy capillaries, provide additional antioxidant protection and promote visual acuity.
