It is difficult to imagine modern life without a TV, computer, mobile phone or smartphone — they are leisure, necessary for work, in general, people use them regularly. Even young children are increasingly watching their educational programs and cartoons on mobile devices. All this leads to excessive eye strain, which causes headaches, problems with the cornea and iris. According to recent studies, vision problems are observed in almost 70% of children in school, and in adults this percentage is even higher. To prevent damage to vision, special vitamins are used — today pharmacies offer a wide selection of such drugs.
It is easy to get confused in this range, to help you decide on the most suitable product, we decided to develop a rating of the best vitamins for the eyes. Here, the composition and principle of action of each drug will be analyzed, and a number of useful tips will be given in terms of choosing the optimal product. However, you should remember that this review is not a recommendation for the purchase of products you like, since before using the drug, you must always consult with your ophthalmologist.
How to choose the right vitamins for the eyes?
Vision may deteriorate with age or due to excessive eye strain. We considered the last point a little earlier, and the first is often associated with age-related changes, not a very correct way of life. In order to stop or slow down such a process, the eyes need to be nourished with vitamins, trace elements, and minerals.
Be sure to pay attention to the composition of the drug before buying. For the most part, such compositions are vitamin-mineral complexes that actively nourish the retina, eye vessels and other organs of the eyeball. On sale you can find universal products that contain substances characterized by a wide spectrum of action — lutein, carotene, zeaxanthin. Such compounds have a general strengthening effect, improve vision, help to cope with myopia, and accelerate metabolic processes. When choosing, preference should be given to formulations that contain a wide range of active substances.
There are vitamins of various directions — some are used to prevent diseases, minimize the negative impact from the external environment, others nourish and strengthen the organs of vision, others are designed to help with certain diseases, in particular, they help to cope with myopia, hyperopia, slow down the development of glaucoma and cataracts, as well as a number of other eye diseases.
It is quite natural that vitamins for the eyes may have certain contraindications, which must be carefully studied before buying. For this reason, you will need to consult a specialist. The form of the product is also important. The drugs are available in the form of tablets, capsules, ointments or drops. The last two varieties have a local effect, however, in capsules and tablets, the duration of the active effect on the organs of vision is much longer.
When we selected drugs for inclusion in this review, we mainly paid attention to the factors discussed above. However, this was not the only criterion — it also took into account the value for money, as well as user reviews. As a result, we have compiled a rating of not very expensive, but popular among consumers and the most effective drugs that nourish the eyes, preventing vision from deteriorating for a long time. We hope that after studying the review and consulting with a doctor, you will be able to choose vitamins that will allow you to maintain visual acuity for many years.
