Lutein is one of two carotenoids (the other is zeaxanthin) that are found in the eyes, particularly in the macula and the lens, where they help to absorb damaging blue light, quench singlet oxygen and inhibit lipid peroxidation.

Lutein appears to offer significant protection against macular degeneration. The macula is the area of the retina where images are focused. It is the portion of the eye responsible for fine vision. Degeneration of the macula is a leading cause of severe visual loss. The macula, especially the central portion of the macula (the fovea) owes its yellow colour to its high concentration of lutein. A low level of lutein in the macula pigment is thought to represent a major risk factor for age-related macular degeneration. Therefore, the possibility of increasing the concentration of lutein within the macula may offer significant protective effects against the development of macular degeneration. Lutein supplementation has been able to increase blood and macular lutein concentrations. However, whether or not lutein supplementation can actually prevent or treat macular degeneration has not been sufficiently determined.
