Com­puter and phone screens em­anate blue light, which pen­e­trates our eyes and con­trib­utes to eye strain, but a nat­u­ral rem­edy can help. A com­bi­na­tion of an­tiox­i­dants, lutein and zeax­an­thin, are nat­u­ral fil­ters that re­duce the im­pact of blue light. A study at the Uni­ver­sity of Ge­or­gia in Athens found that sup­ple­ments with th­ese an­tiox­i­dants helped re­duce not only eye strain but also neck pain, fa­tigue, and headaches among peo­ple who spent at least six hours daily in front of a screen. “Af­ter six months of sup­ple­men­ta­tion, we saw sig­nif­i­cant re­duc­tion, around 30 per­cent, in th­ese symp­toms, and sig­nif­i­cant im­prove­ment in mea­sures of vis­ual per­for­mance and pro­tec­tion,” says lead re­searcher James String­ham, PhD. This antioxidant com­bi­na­tion is an in­gre­di­ent called Lutemax 2020, found in many brands of eye health sup­ple­ments.
