    ..Light absorption by macular pigment appears to influence the amount of short-wavelength light necessary to elicit photophobia...

    Adam J Wenzel
    Psychology Department, University of New Hampshire, Durham, NH 03824, USA
    J Nutr 136:2568-73. 2006
    ..Increasing egg consumption to 6 eggs/wk may be an effective method to increase MPOD...

    Adam J Wenzel
    Psychology Department, University of South Carolina, Aiken, SC 29801, USA
    Ophthalmic Physiol Opt 27:329-35. 2007
    ..Increased consumption of lutein and zeaxanthin has been shown to increase macular pigment optical density (MPOD) in some individuals. Most interventions either obtained infrequent measures of MPOD or measured MPOD at a single retinal locus...

    ..002), and higher MPOD at 60' (P = 0.04) and 120' (P = 0.01). These findings suggest that carotenoid-rich diets and serum carotenoids positively contribute to MP status...

    ..Further, evidence suggests that exposure to UV light can degrade plasma carotenoid levels in vivo. The present study investigated the effects of exposure to normal levels of light on the levels of lutein and zeaxanthin in the retina...
