Our eyes, Our Wonderful eyes.

Our Eyes. Our wonderful eyes.

Our eyes were designed for rural and forestry living.

We’ve only had electric or gas lighting for one hundred of the millions of years over which we have developed our eyes. Just one hundred years, less than the blink of an eye, no wonder they are serious risk.

Small wonder. Our eyes have to handle huge demands and long hours of artificial light, caused by:-

  • office and home lighting

  • shops, arcades, supermarkets and shopping malls

  • searchlights, spotlights and stage lighting

  • photograph / camera flashes

  • ultra-violet lights in clubs

  • street lighting and vehicle headlights ( and rear fog lights)

  • television screens particularly bright white light

  • computer screens, smartphones and tablets

  • lasers

  • plus glare from white painted buildings and glass fronts

  • plus natural hazards from snow glare and glare from lakes, rivers, seas and oceans

Small wonder our eyes can benefit from extra care and attention including extra lutein to supplement the natural lutein in our eyes. The eyes use this as a natural ultra-violet ray protection and for all “blue” light.
