The eye vitamins were developed by some of the world’s leading eye professors and surgeons from UCL and Moorfields Eye Hospital, including Alex Ionides and Professors Dawn Sim and Marcus Fruttiger, to support the healthy function of the eyes and vision. It also alleviates the symptoms of dry eye and digital eye strain, so helpful for those who spend a lot of time in front of screens.
The eyes have their own unique nutrient requirements for healthy vision and function, which is why these eye vitamins have been specifically developed, and are personally taken, by some of the world’s leading eye health professors and surgeons from UCL and Moorfields Eye Hospital.
What’s in the eye vitamins?
They contain lutein and zeaxanthin – antioxidants naturally found in your retina. We’ve added vitamin C because it’s used to reduce the risk of cataracts, as well as zinc and vitamins B2 (riboflavin), B6, B9 (folic acid), B12 and E, which all help to look after and maintain your vision.
We’ve also added a pure extract of maqui berry, a superfruit that only we use, that has been shown to help your eyes produce tears and prevents oxidative stress, which occurs when the back of our eyes get a lot of stress from light, meaning it will help the symptoms of dry eye and eye strain from prolonged use of screens.
Who would benefit from taking the eye vitamins?
“If you’re in your 30s, 40s or 50s and want to maintain your eye health in later life, it’s a good idea to take targeted eye vitamins as a preventative measure for eye health. Our vitamins won’t interfere with other supplements and is suitable for those aged 12 and over” says Professor Dawn Sim, Professor at UCL, Ophthalmic Surgeon at Moorfields Eye Hospital and co-founder of MTHK.
What do the eye vitamins help with?
The unique and proven formulation helps to keep the eyes healthy for the long term and improves the symptoms of dry eye and eye strain. The vitamins are particularly aimed at people with eye discomfort, dry eyes, and those who spend extended amounts of time in front of screens daily.
