Macular Pigment Optical Density in a Central European Population

Macular Pigment Optical Density in a Central European Population By Antonios Pipis, MD; Eftychia Touliou, MD; Albert J. Augustin, PhD Assuming that macular pigment is protective against age-related macular degeneration, our study highlights the role of nutritional counseling and intervention in preventing this disease. Furthermore, MPOD appears to increase with age, and the distribution of…

Macular Pigment and Its Contribution to Vision

Macular Pigment and Its Contribution to Vision By: Ekaterina Loskutova, John Nolan, Alan Howard and Stephen Beatty Three dietary carotenoids, lutein (L), zeaxanthin (Z) and meso-zeaxanthin (MZ) accumulate at the central retina (macula), where they are collectively referred to as macular pigment (MP). MP’s pre-receptoral absorption of blue light and consequential attenuation of the effects…
