Eye expert talks lutein at SupplySide

Ocular Nutrition Society president will speak at OmniActive Health Technologies' SupplySide Why presentation: Lutein For Every Age.  

Dr. Jeffrey Anshel OD, FAAO, president of the Ocular Nutrition Society, fellow of the American Academy of Optometry and author, will be discussing the importance of supplementing with lutein over a lifetime at the OmniActive Health Technologies sponsored SupplySide Why presentation: Lutein For Every Age on May 1 from 11:45 to 11:55 a.m. The presentation will include information on eye health with a special focus on the importance of lutein across all age demographics. A book signing by Dr. Anshel will directly follow at noon at OmniActive's booth #663.

"Over time, exposure to environmental and biological stressors diminishes the levels of lutein in the eyes, leaving them vulnerable to deterioration," said Dr. Anshel. "There is a need to try to offset the effects of this stress in order to maintain healthy vision with good habits such as living a healthy lifestyle and consuming a lutein-rich diet or supplementing with high quality lutein."

This presentation, along with a variety of wide-reaching, multimedia initiatives is part of OmniActive Health Technologies’ long-term educational campaign Lutein For Every Age™, which is aimed at raising visibility surrounding the importance of early and consistent supplementation with lutein to promote eye health.
