Matching the eye’s natural 2:1 ratio of zeaxanthin to lutein, EyePromise Screen Shield Teen adds an extra layer of protection for young eyes whose macular pigment is not fully developed.
CHESTERFIELD, MO (PRWEB) May 01, 2019
EyePromise®, the leading evidence-based eye health nutraceutical company, announced the introduction of Screen Shield Teen to its premium EyePromise eye vitamin line today. EyePromise Screen Shield Teen is an ocular nutrition supplement specially formulated to preserve and support visual comfort and wellness for children ages 4-17.
According to a recent independent Kemin study1 of 300 U.S. parents, 70 percent of children experience at least one vision-related issue due to overuse of screen-time devices. The study also found that, while parents acknowledge the overuse, 69 percent of them do not anticipate any decrease in their child’s screen use.
“Clearly, parents are concerned about the impact of blue light from digital screen usage. Screen time issues such as tired eyes, headaches and eye strain are daily concerns that I hear in my practice," says Joseph J. Pizzimenti, OD, FAAO, Professor at the Rosenberg School of Optometry at the University of the Incarnate Word in San Antonio, Texas and dad to a high school junior. "Along with limiting my teenage son’s amount of screen time, especially before sleep, I now prescribe EyePromise’s Screen Shield Teen. Screen Shield Teen acts as a natural line of defense parents can provide their children.”
Screen Shield Teen is a naturally-flavored fruit punch chewable eye vitamin. It is formulated with all-natural zeaxanthin and other nutrients to protect children’s eyes from the ill effects of increasing screen exposure. Screen Shield Teen is also designed to complement a child’s current multi-vitamin. Eye-healthy antioxidants like zeaxanthin and lutein offer natural protection for young eyes, making Screen Shield Teen a great addition to a child’s daily routine.
“Screen Shield Teen was designed with input from our Scientific Advisory Board and based on doctor feedback and increased consumer concerns around eye and vision symptoms from device usage. Leveraging science, our high-quality standards, and inclusion of natural ingredients, we are excited to bring Screen Shield Teen to market based on doctor and patient needs.” says Andreas Wolf, President of EyePromise.
Developed by the #1 doctor-recommended eye health brand, EyePromise Screen Shield Teen ingredients are made with all-natural zeaxanthin (not synthetic) and are GMO and gluten free. EyePromise products are manufactured in FDA cGMP and NSF-certified facilities. These high-quality ocular supplements are the choice of U.S. professional sports teams and players and Olympic athletes.
“We believe with over 30 years of research dedicated to eye health and nutrition that the formula selected for Screen Shield Teen will support teens’ visual comfort and wellness. Matching the eye’s natural 2:1 ratio of zeaxanthin to lutein, EyePromise Screen Shield Teen adds an extra layer of protection for young eyes whose macular pigment is not fully developed,” notes Dennis Gierhart, Ph.D., co-founder of ZeaVision®, the parent company of EyePromise.
