EYE is a window of knowledge. The eyes have a little more important role in the absorption process and the perception of reality. We can “know” a lot of things because we have healthy eyes.

But the problem is decreased quality of vision as you age. This is caused by many things. One of them is the sun.

Just FYI, the lens cells to produce a set of proteins called crystalline who serves as fiber optics to filter light through the lens onto the retina. Elements of red, blue, green, yellow, and ultraviolet (UV) can penetrate the transparent lens. Of all the elements, UV-who can damage the lens. While blue light damage to the retina.

Another factor is the free radicals. If not neutralized by antioxidants, which ooksidasi too long can damage lipids, from transparent to opaque. This is called a cataract. Antioxidants are compounds that help maintain cells and tissues in the eye and the healthy organs of others. In the lens of the eye contains vitamins C, E, lutein, and zeaxanthine. The more damaged proteins accumulate, the more turbid crystalline lens.

Protective nutrients and rich in antioxidants is a solution to prevent cataracts. Unlikely that women always take vitamin C, E, riboflavin, beta-carotene, lutein, and suffering from cataracts zeaxanthein.

At the age above 55 years, macular degeneration with age is a major cause of blindness and vision damage. This occurs because the destruction of cells in the retina that are sensitive to light. The focus is yellow spots (yellow spots) 3 mm wide. This is called macular latea. Located in the rear-middle of the eye.

However, in the eyes of the “old”, oxidized proteins begin to accumulate and cause problems. Fortunately, in the eyes there are two types of carotenoids, namely lutein and zeaxanthine that helps protect the eye by absorbing blue light and neutralize free radicals. Patients with macular degeneration have zeaxanthine and lutein levels lower than normal people, so that function as protective antioxidants was not optimal.

In line with the AREDS project (Agerelated Eye Disease Study) which has lasted seven years, biochemical nutrition experts, the research showed, that the risk of macular degeneration with age has been reduced in those taking vitamins C, E, beta-carotene, and zinc, at least for six years.
