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.
