Vijaya Juturu Ph.D., F.A.C.N., Senior Manager of Global Scientific and Clinical Affairs, OmniActive Health Technologies Inc., delivered the inaugural speech at the 5 Experimental Ophthalmology (August 4th-6th, 2015 in Valencia, Spain). Dr. Juturu was also an invited speaker, presenting a well-received session—“Macular Carotenoids Current Perspectives: Closing the Generation Gap, which supported the conference’s theme—Scientific Eye for Visual Intelligence. Dr. Juturu shared new insights into the importance of the macular carotenoids—lutein and zeaxanthin isomers (RR-zeaxanthin and RS (meso)-zeaxanthin)—from infancy to adulthood including visual performance as well as eye and brain health and coordination. Moreover, Juturu discussed the effects of obesity on AMD and vision health.
“Recent studies have further highlighted the tremendous potential and unique, individual roles that each of the macular carotenoids—lutein, RR-zeaxanthin and RS-zeaxanthin—play in maintaining healthy vision and brain health over a lifetime,” stated Dr. Juturu. “To be asked to present on this topic is not only a testament to OmniActive’s robust scientific program but also the relevance and validity of science surrounding the macular carotenoids.”
Through a variety of global initiatives, OmniActive promotes education on various topics. To further support both the scientific community, healthcare professionals and consumers, OmniActive developed Lutein For Every Age to raises awareness surrounding the importance of early and consistent lutein supplementation for helping maintain proper health over a lifetime.
