UV Damage
New studies have also shown that macular damage, caused by exposure to harmful UV light as a child, is a major contributing factor causing Macular Degeneration in adults. Always try and get your kids in good quality sunglasses and peaked caps ! Remember that protection is needed not just on the beach but for winter sports as well.
Macular degeneration is the most common cause of loss of central vision in the Western World. As we are living longer it is becoming more frequent. Signs are loss and/or distortion of central vision. These symptoms require urgent investigation in order to gain prompt treatment.

To help reduce the risk of macula degeneration, stop smoking, protect the eyes against harmful UV light,(wear good quality sun protection) and follow a diet rich in antioxidants – particularly vitamins C,E and Zinc.

Scientists have found that the yellow colour, or pigment inside the macula comes from the carotenoids(macula pignants), Lutein, Zeaxanthin and Meso-Zeaxanthin. Studies have shown that these three pigments help to protect the tissues in the eye. They top up the body's natural levels and absorb harmful blue light, whilst neutralising free radicals that accumulate with age.
New to Park Vision and on sale in optical practices only, is Macushield a unique supplement to support eye health. It has high levels of meso-zeaxanthin, the only carotenoid found exclusively in the macula. Studies have proven that supplements can help stabilise macula changes and slow the progression of macular degeneration.
