Age, poor lighting and eye strain can cause unfortunate changes in our eyes. Lifelong exposure to light may decrease the photoreceptors (light-sensitive nerve cells) in the eye. Sunlight can produce free radicals that break down, or oxidize, the lipids making up the outer segments of photoreceptors. This oxidation eventually damages the retina where visual perception is most acute - and can result in vision loss.
This process is not inevitable. Studies have shown that bilberry can help maintain normal eye function. Planetary Herbals Bilberry Eye Complex combines concentrated bilberry extract, shown in numerous studies to support visual acuity, with the classic Chinese formula Ming Mu Di Huang Wan (`Bright Eye Rehmannia Formula`). Together, these herbs unite science and tradition to provide nourishing support to normal vision.
