Product Information Menu
By absorbing blue light, carotenoids protect delicate photoreceptor cells in the retina’s macula from light damage. The density of your macular pigment (composed of lutein, zeaxanthin and meso-zeaxanthin) is essential to proper vision.8-9 These carotenoids act as antioxidants and protect the macula from damage by photo-initiated oxidative stress.10-12 Unfortunately, this density declines naturally over time. Some aging people also lose their ability to convert lutein into meso-zeaxanthin inside their macula.
Eating lots of lutein- and zeaxanthin-containing vegetables can help maintain the structural integrity of the macula.13-14 However, since meso-zeaxanthin is not part of the typical diet, it cannot be replaced except in supplement form.
This Super Zeaxanthin formula provides clinically proven doses of all three carotenoids to help protect your precious eyesight. It also includes C3G (Cyanidin-3-gluco-side), a cutting-edge berry flavonoid compound that helps to stimulate regeneration of rhodopsin. Rhodopsin is a compound in the eyes that absorbs light in the retina. As rhodopsin dramatically declines over time, it leads to a progressive loss of night vision. By helping to maintain rhodopsin, C3G helps to support night vision.

When I learned my mother was experiencing failing eye sight, I sent her a bottle of this stuff to try out, since it helped my own eye sight a little bit.I was totally not expecting it, but my mother had called me back after a 2 month follow up with her optomitrist, and he was startled that her vision had improved so dramatically! The doctor told her based on the results of her latest vision tests that he doesn't need to see her for another year. That is amazing news to me, as she was told that she might need corrective *surgery*.While the product may not work for everyone, it certainly worked for her and for myself (me to a lesser degree, but I am in my late 30s and don't have vision issues - I was trying it to see if night vision improved), so I would highly recommend giving it a shot to those with macular degeneration.

Good for dry eyes
About Me First Time User
Comments about Life Extension Super Zeaxanthin with Lutein, Meso-Zeaxanthin and C3G, 60 softgels:
I spend a lot of time in front of a computer all day and tend to get tired dry eyes most of the time. I have used eye drops to help ease the problem but that doesn't really fix it. It just gives it a temporary relief, it's also not good for constant use. This supplements work really well and I have been only taking it for a couple of weeks. It relieved about 80% of dry and burning eye feeling.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I took this product for about a year and then stopped for five months. Can't read as well and have to use my glasses most of my reading time now. When I was taking the pill, this was not the case. I was stunned on occasion when I read some very small print without my glasses. Wished I had never stopped taking it, however, it is never too late to resume. For me, this product works........

I use this for aging eyes and night driving. Blue and green eyed folks are more sensitive to light. This supplement doesn't solve the problem but eye level near the horizon glare has improved as well as glare during night driving.
this product i will buy again
