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.
