DALLAS, TX--(Marketwired - Sep 27, 2013) - Don't blame poor eyesight on age. Research is showing that proactively looking after your eyes can give you a lifetime of good vision. The health experts at Cooper Aerobics, led by preventive pioneer, Kenneth H. Cooper, M.D., MPH, have recently launched Cooper Complete MVP (maximum vision and performance), a supplement with a scientifically proven formula to deliver key nutrients for enhanced vision.

Cooper Complete MVP is a unique combination of 2,000 IUs of vitamin D, 500 mg of EPA and 500 mg of DHA omega-3 fatty acids, 10 mg of FloraGLO Lutein and 2 mg of zeaxanthin. The recommended dosage is two softgels daily (gluten-free, 60 softgels, $34.95, www.coopercomplete.com).

"The mix of the FloraGLO Lutein and zeaxanthin in conjunction with omega-3 fatty acids and vitamin D-3 really makes this supplement unlike any other in the vision category," says Jill Turner, president of Cooper Complete nutritional supplements. "Lutein and zeaxanthin are powerful carotenoids that can improve tolerance to natural glaring and artificial light by 58 percent in addition to reducing glare recovery time up to five seconds."

Research shows the combination of the ingredients provides improved sensitivity to light, improved contrast sensitivity (being able to distinguish a white ball from the blue sky, for example) and increases temporal processing speeds thereby improving reaction time. 

Preventive health is becoming more critical for vision with the increase use of electronic gadgets. According to Focus Clinics, there has been a 35 percent increase in the number of people with advancing myopia (short-sightedness) since the launch of smartphones in 1997. Studies show the proper dosage of lutein and zeaxanthin can help filter damaging blue light from energy-efficient light bulbs, LED screens, laptops, smartphones and tablets. 

Reports show that glare from headlights while driving at night is a leading cause of car crashes. Lutein and zeaxanthin can reduce the sensitivity to bright light and visual discomfort while reducing the effects of glare and promoting faster recovery and reaction time.

Beyond eye health, lutein helps protect, restore and hydrate the skin by increasing the resistance to reddening after sun exposure (working as an internal sunscreen), enhancing skin hydration and boosting elasticity.

Other key dietary changes that can help to improve vision include antioxidants (colorful fruits and vegetables like kale and broccoli), zinc (found in beans, pumpkin seeds and chocolate) and omega 3s (found in oily fish). Eye health experts say that lifestyle changes such as limiting gadget use, spending more time in the daylight and quitting smoking (including passive smoking) can reduce the risk of common eye problems that can develop with age including cataracts, glaucoma and the most common cause of sight loss in people age 60 plus: age-related macular degeneration (AMD).
