More and more people are in front of digital screens these days and the numbers are growing exponentially. The latest research states that Americans spend 7-11 hrs a day in front of some form of digital screen. The gamer and e-sport population is growing at even a faster rate. Billions of people globally sit in front of multiple monitors competing intensely for hours and even days on the latest video games. Both PC gamers and console gamers are growing at a significant rate. The latest in this technology is head mounted displays to access the metaverse. These virtual reality headsets are becoming more and more popular at this time
These digital screens create an enormous amount of visual strain, eye fatigue, headaches, dry eyes and fluctuation in vision known as Computer Vision Syndrome or digital eye strain. The digital screens also emit a damaging high intensity spectrum of blue light that can cause harm to the retina. Many gamers also exhibit brain fog, cognitive impairment, short term memory loss, sleep insomnia, anxiety, depression and many other unwanted health conditions.
This epidemic of digital screen related eye and health issues is seen daily in eye care providers and primary care physician offices across the nation.
The optometric physicians and nutrition specialists on the Fortifeye Vitamin team have been diagnosing and treating digital eye strain and computer vision syndrome daily for the last 30 years. The Fortifeye Vitamin team has been involved in Research and Development of nutritional supplements for macular degeneration, glaucoma, dry eye, computer vision syndrome and Performance Nutrition supplements since 2005. They are constantly evaluating what works and what doesn’t work with patients that exhibit signs of digital eye strain and computer vision syndrome.
This dramatic increase in digital eye strain related problems sparked the interest of Dr Michael Lange, CEO of The Lange Eye Institute and Founder of Fortifeye Vitamins to develop an evidence based nutritional supplement for gamers and anyone in front of a digital screen for prolonged periods of time. This nutritional supplement would have to be backed by clinical studies, use the exact trade marked ingredients in the exact ratios used in studies, convenient, easy to swallow and safe. This new generation gamer supplement will also be useful for anyone on a computer for prolonged periods of time and need to make quick accurate decisions without hesitation. Fortifeye Focus was developed in 2005 to bring nutritional support to everyone with digital eye strain.

Nutritional supplements to improve gamer performance and reduce eye fatigue is on the rise in the e-sports world. More and more gamers are taking nutritional supplements and vitamins to enhance gameplay performance, reduce eye fatigue, support memory and cognitive abilities and protect their eyes. Gamers are willing to do just about anything to enhance their performance and give them an additional competitive edge over their gaming competition.
Proper nutrition plays an important role for anyone using any type of digital screens for prolonged periods of time. There are 4 carotenoids that are very important in the human eye that come into play during prolonged screen time associated with gaming. Lutein, Zeaxanthin isomers( RR-zeaxanthin and meso-zeaxanthin) and Astaxanthin are the 4 carotenoids . Lutein and zeaxanthin isomers are carotenoids that are in the center of the retina called the macula. These carotenoids are responsible for the MPOD or macula pigment optical density. Studies indicate the blue light emitted from computers, smart phones and other digital screens may be associated with blue light damage to the macula. Anyone exposed to chronic blue light from prolonged screen time should consider eating more organic cooked kale and spinach for the lutein, orange bell peppers and goji berries for the zeaxanthin. Most gamers are not going to eat the required amounts of these specific foods to gain the benefits of the lutein and zeaxanthin for macula health. These carotenoids will help to protect the center of the retina called the macula from the harmful blue light. Clinical studies also indicate Lutein and Zeaxanthin will support optimal visual performance in a variety of ways. These carotenoids will reduce glare discomfort and disability, reduce the amount of time it takes to recover after a bright light is flashed in your vision (photo stress recovery) and enhance contrast on images. Gamers will experience a multitude of issues related to glare, contrast and photo stress recovery while intensely competing in a particular game. Lutein and Zeaxanthin isomers also support brain and skin health.
The most powerful carotenoid is called astaxanthin. Astaxanthin is an amazing all natural antioxidant and anti-inflammatory that is derived from a specific algae that gives the red color to wild salmon. Astaxanthin has been shown in evidence-based studies to improve the focusing abillity of the eye and reduce accommodative eye fatigue when taken in a dose of 6mg of AstaReal Astaxanthin. Astaxanthin also improves muscle endurance and recovery making it a perfect supplement for athletes and gamers. Astaxanthin improves blood flow to the eye and crosses the blood brain and retinal barriers to help control oxidation and inflammation in the eyes and brain. Recent studies indicate astaxanthin may enhance cognitive functioning and memory. The most common food containing astaxanthin is wild salmon however it is not realistic to get the daily supply of astaxanthin from salmon. The best way for a gamer to get astaxanthin is through a supplement containing 6mg of Asta Real astaxanthin.
