What is the Macular?

The Macula is the most sensitive part of the retina where all our detailed central vision takes place. Macular pigments sit just in front of the Macula and help to protect it. Too much exposure to violet-blue light from the sun and digital digital devices and a diet lacking in antioxidants can deplete these pigments and therefore put our Macula at risk of Macular Degeneration.

Good sun protection will also help protect the face, lens and cornea from harmful UV light which are, of course contributing factors of cataracts and cancer.
