• Can Supplements Improve Night Vision?


    Question:

    I have read that lutein and zeaxanthin along with bilberry extract is good to take for improved night vision. Is there any truth to this?


    Answer:

    While some people say bilberry extract helps with night vision, there is no conclusive scientific evidence to support this. Lutein and zeaxanthin are carotenoids that are the prominent pigments in the macula. While oral supplementation with these agents can increase the macular pigment density, scientific support for their benefit in helping night vision is inconclusive as well.
