Since the outbreak of the coronavirus, people have been mostly limited to the confines of their own homes resulting in limited activities, in compliance with a worldwide protocol intended to abate if not totally control the health devastation of this pandemic.
Even appointments to the hospitals or physicians have been restricted and consultations and diagnoses were only for those deemed urgent or life-threatening. Other health concerns, i.e. dental, dermatological, and ophthalmology issues, are blindly dismissed as non-urgent.
And for the last 18 months or so, optic care has been relegated to the dark corners of health penetralia, overlooking the importance of having healthy eyes in this pandemic as equally critical to respiratory and cardiovascular care.
While studies show people are less likely to visit an eye doctor during the pandemic despite the fact that an increasing number of adults are reported to have deteriorating eyesight, there has been no effort to educate the public about this emerging problem. The extended exposure to television, computers and other electronic gadgets has contributed to the current scenario.
Though digital technology has increasingly become essential, people have overlooked the dangers this has spawned: widespread macular degeneration, myopia, eye strain, glaucoma, cataracts, and other optic-related problems for both young and adult persons.
The importance of eye care should also be given emphasis for front liners and health workers who are subjected to constant emotional, mental and physical stress, not to mention the eye strain accompanying the extended work hours.
Strained eyes can also affect the quality of their work causing blurry vision, burning or itching eyes, headache, watery or dry eyes, increased sensitivity to light, difficulty in focusing, and sore neck, back, and shoulders.
Frontliners and health workers often complain about sore necks or backs and persistent headaches disregarding the cause which is eye strain. This is either ignored or the common remedy would be taking pain relievers. It is usual that we disregard our eye’s health not until the damage to our eyes like poor vision and dryness become evident. These issues should be addressed immediately as many eye diseases are tolerated at the start but quickly regress into emergency situations or irreversible damage.
Fortunately, one organization is committed to battling these eye problems most people face today and offers the best alternative in a time when personal visits to the doctor are a risk in itself.
Vendiz Pharmaceuticals, Inc. introduces vitaCLEAR, an eye supplement, which was formulated to help slow down age-related macular degeneration or AMD and help boost eye health.
Vitaclear is rich with all the vitamins the eyes badly need such as Lutein, Zeaxanthin, Zinc, Selenium, Omega-3 Fatty Acid, Vitamin A, B3, B12, C, E, and Mineral Supplement with antioxidants for ocular healthcare.
Based on medical studies, progression of eye disease may be slowed down, stopped, and sometimes even improved by taking high doses of certain antioxidants (C- and E-vitamins, copper, zinc, and beta-carotene*).
Lutein and zeaxanthin, which are present in high levels in dark green leafy, and yellow vegetables have potent antioxidant effects. There is also some evidence that a diet containing enough lutein and zeaxanthin may result in a lower risk of AMD. Vitaclear contains two of the most important minerals needed to protect our eyes and improve our eye health.
One tablet of vitaCLEAR each day gives a person an ample dose of vitamins A, C, E, B3, B12, Zinc, Selenium, Lutein, Zeaxanthin, and Omega 3 fatty acid for optimum eye care.
vitaCLEAR is available in all leading drugstores nationwide, Lazada, and other online stores.
