Lutein is a type of carotenoid that is naturally found in leafy green vegetables where it plays a protective role for the plant, protecting it from excessive sun damage. Amazingly, our bodies use lutein in a similar way, depositing it in the macular of the eye, where it helps to protect the delicate light receptor cells from damage, by filtering out certain harmful wavelengths. Extensive research has shown that eating diets that are low in lutein can result in diminished levels of lutein in the macular. So this is another good reason to eat your greens! And if you want to be sure you're getting enough lutein, you can take it as a supplement.
Eyewise has a 20 mg lutein which is good. My mum said her cataract didn''t progress and she continue to take lutein and eye drops from an ophthalmologist. She is happy, however the tablets are expensive.
