Studies published in the American Journal of Epidemiology, Ophthalmology and Archives of Ophthalmology found higher levels of lutein and zeaxanthin in the diet are associated with a lower incidence of macular degeneration.
Two studies published in Investigative Ophthalmology and Visual Science found that eyes with greater levels of macular pigments were less likely to have or develop macular degeneration.

EYE BENEFITS OF LUTEIN AND ZEAXANTHIN
Macular pigment, which is primarily composed of Lutein and Zeaxanthin, protects the retina from damage due to light exposure and oxidative stress. It also has been shown that a high macular pigment density helps to retain visual sensitivity as we age and evidence indicates that raising the intake of dietary zeaxanthin can increase macular pigment. The macular pigment acts like “sunglasses” by protecting the critically important central sight from damaging light waves. The distribution of Lutein and Zeaxanthin in the eye may indicate they have different functions. Zeaxanthin is the dominant component in the center of the macula, while lutein dominates at the outer edges. The eye is selective and preferentially places dietary Zeaxanthin in the very center of the macula, the most critical area for central vision with the greatest need for protection.
