What Is Gummy Science Digital Eye Support?
This formula delivers the macular carotenoids lutein, zeaxanthin and meso-zeaxanthin. These nutrients help revitalize the density of the macular pigment—material in the retina that filters out blue light like that emitted by digital devices before it can reach the delicate photoreceptors at the back of the eye.
Macular pigment filters blue light before it hits the photoreceptors in the retina. This helps maintain vision health.

- Provides eye-healthy carotenoids lutein, zeaxanthin & meso-zeaxanthin
- Helps maintain healthy macular pigment density, your eyes’ defense against blue light from digital device screens

Eye Health in a Digital World
Each day we are over-exposed to digital phones, tablets and computer screens—as well as the blue spectrum of light they emit. The macular pigment in our eyes needs special nutrients called carotenoids to maintain the pigment density necessary to filter out blue light before it reaches the photoreceptors in the retina. Our Gummy Science™ Digital Eye Support provides important carotenoids in two daily, delicious, berry-flavored gummies.
What we see as light is only the visible portion of a broad spectrum of electromagnetic radiation wavelengths. We perceive different wavelengths within that spectrum as different colors. Wavelengths in the range of about 400–500 nanometers, which we perceive as the color blue, can influence mood, circadian rhythms, attention and more.
Blue light comes to us naturally in the form of sunlight. But that same wavelength is also produced by many digital device screens, such as those found on computers, smartphones and tablets.1
The health effects of blue light
The eye’s cornea and lens are unable to filter out blue light before it enters the eye. The only part of the eye that can block blue light is the macula, located in the retina all the way at the back. Macular pigment is full of lutein and zeaxanthin, carotenoids that help the eye absorb blue light. So we’ve created a delicious, berry-flavored gummy that delivers lutein and zeaxanthin to support eye health.2,3
More About Lutemax 2020®
The main ingredient in Gummy Science™ Digital Eye Support is clinically studied Lutemax 2020®. This patented marigold extract provides three macular carotenoids, including lutein and both zeaxanthin isomers at the same 5:1 ratio found in nature.
Lutein & zeaxanthin
These compounds are just two of more than 600 carotenoids found in nature. But lutein and zeaxanthin are called macular carotenoids for a reason: isomers of these compounds are the predominate carotenoids found in your eyes. Specifically, these compounds are located within the protective dot of pigment called the macula.
Macular Pigment Ocular Density (MPOD)
The more lutein and zeaxanthin your macular pigment has, the better it can do its job: acting as primary filter against blue light. These compounds also support visual health and acuity by protecting delicate eye tissues from oxidative stress.3-5
Clinically studied vision health support
In a double-blind, placebo-controlled 12-week clinical study, Lutemax 2020® was given to young, healthy adults once a day. The researchers measured several variables, including macular pigment density, serum carotenoid levels, and response to glare and visual stress caused by excessive light. The results were promising.6
We’ve all experienced the effects of light glare, where exposure to bright light makes it difficult to see clearly. But how bright is too bright can actually vary. Over a 12-month period, Lutemax 2020® improved the tolerable threshold of intensity where a subject’s eyesight was affected by glare.6
Sometimes, after being exposed to a bright light, it takes time for the eyes to adjust and start re-transmitting visual cues to the brain from the world around you. This whiteout period where we cannot see clearly is called photostress and it is completely normal. But as with light glare, photostress recovery time can vary. Lutemax 2020® improved scores of photostress recovery times.6
More about Blue Light
Excessive exposure to blue light, especially late in the day (as can occur while viewing digital displays before bed) can disrupt our circadian rhythms, and the delicate structures in our eyes cannot block blue light efficiently without sufficient macular pigment density.
Since many of us use our digital devices as many as 11 hours a day, it is imperative that we give our eyes the nutritional support they need to filter out the blue light.
Delicious Support for Your Eyes
Gummy Science™ Digital Eye Support gummies have a delicious berry flavor with no sugar. Two gummies a day help protect eyes from oxidative stress and the blue light that our digital world throws at us. At home or at work, keep a bottle of Gummy Science™ Digital Eye nearby.
