With growing public awareness of blue light hazards, your patients might now be more amenable to adopting a daily nutritional regimen to counter it, said Bausch + Lomb in introducing its new Ocuvite Blue Light vitamins, announced today. The company noted that most adults spend seven or more hours per day using a variety of digital devices, exposing them to prolonged blue light emissions from phone and computer screens.

The supplement is formulated with the carotenoids lutein and zeaxanthin, two nutrients believed to have a protective effect on the macula. B+L said Ocuvite Blue Light will be available in the third quarter of this year.
