BACKGROUND Increasing macular pigment optical density (MPOD) as a result of increased macular concentration of lutein and zeaxanthin may reduce the risk of age-related macular degeneration (AMD). PURPOSE The aim of present study was to determine the influence in which the consumption of eggs, a rich source of dietary lutein and zeaxanthin, influences MPOD and serum lutein. METHODS In this systematic review and meta-analysis, we searched PubMed, Scopus, and ISI Web of Science up to July 2020… 

Consumption of Lutein and Zeaxanthin and Its Relation to the Level of Macular Pigment Optical Density in Thai Subjects
