High-energy blue light is a growing concern because of the increased exposure from multiple sources including sunlight, energy-efficient lighting and digital devices. The need to help protect the eyes from blue light’s damaging effects is urgent. Of the more than 600 carotenoids found in nature, only three—lutein, RR-zeaxanthin and RS-zeaxanthin—also known as meso-zeaxanthin—are found in the eye. Together, lutein and the zeaxanthin isomers absorb a broader spectrum of high-energy blue light.
