What is MacuShield and MacuShield Gold? 

MacuShield- Developed in collaboration with leading international eye health experts - is a meso-zeaxanthin, lutein and zeaxanthin food supplement. 

This once-a-day easy to swallow capsule combines all three macular carotenoids in a unique formula containing meso-zeaxanthin. 

Scientific research shows that these three nutrients are found at the back of the eye, at the macula, the specialised part of the eye that is responsible for our detailed, central vision. Here they form the macular pigment (yellow colour).

Meso-zeaxanthin is particularly concentrated at the centre of this pigment. 

MacuShield Gold is a more advanced product and has been formulated on the recommendations from large scale scientific research.

Alongside the MacuShield Original ingredients (Meso-zeaxanthin, Lutein, Zeaxanthin), it contains zinc to help maintain normal vision, copper and high dose vitamin C, and vitamin E which contributes to the protection of cells from oxidative stress.

MacuShield Gold has been designed to maximise the nutritional support we can offer our eyes as we age.

MacuShield Gold helps maintain adequate intake of these important nutrients in conjunction with a balanced diet.  

Dry Eye:

Dry eye is a common condition that may be caused because your eyes do not produce enough tears, or because the tears that you have evaporate too quickly or do not spread evenly across the front of your eye. The symptoms are usually in both eyes.

Dry eye can make your eye feel scratchy or irritated.
