S3 BioPhotonic Scanner

The S3 BioPhotonic Scanner is a fast and painless way to measure your antioxidant levels in your skin. Specifically, the S3 BioPhotonic Scanner measures a powerful antioxidant called carotenoids found in abundance in many fruits and vegetables. Carotenoids neutralize damaging free radical molecules that attack our cells and organs. We absorb carotenoids in blood plasma and tissue, like our skin, providing an excellent indicator of a person’s antioxidant level.

Our Lake Worth eye doctors offer this state-of-the-art technology.

Skin Carotenoid Score

The S3 BioPhotonic Scanner uses a scientific principle called resonant Raman Spectroscopy which is designed to emit the exact wavelength of light necessary to resonate with human antioxidant molecules.

Unlike other methods of measuring antioxidants (which fluctuate throughout the day), the S3 BioPhotonic Scanner shows the stable level of carotenoid antioxidants in your skin—providing you with a more accurate and reliable biomarker of your antioxidant level. Your Skin Carotenoid Score will help you determine whether you are consuming an adequate amount of antioxidant containing nutrients.​​​​

 AMD Awareness

Ocular Nutritional Supplements

Our doctors recommend nutritional supplements to improve your antioxidant levels and promote better eye health and general health.

Healthy nutrition can be achieved by eating 8-10 or more servings of vegetables and fruits every day. If you do not eat enough vegetables and fruits daily, we recommend that you add supplements to your diet that include antioxidants.

Antioxidants combat free radicals, which are harmful to our health. Free radicals damage our cells and organs, leading to disease and degeneration. Antioxidants help protect our cells from this damage, reducing and sometimes eliminating the risk of disease and degeneration. Examples of free radicals are chemicals from fried and processed foods, smoking, pollution, ultraviolet light (sunlight) exposure, etc.

Examples of antioxidants are carotenoids, flavonoids, tocopherols, anthocyanins, etc.

LifePak is a comprehensive formula that contains an optimal blend of vitamins, minerals, and more importantly antioxidants and phytonutrients.

Our doctors recommended LifePak supplements as they have been optimally formulated with the safest ingredients. This means that the ingredients have been thoroughly tested to make sure they are exactly as the label reads and also tested against bacteria and other microbes as well as toxins, like mercury.

These ingredients are also bio-available, which means that they absorb well and provide the most effective nutrition.

Eye Formula

Age-Related Macular Degeneration

Did you know that Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD) destroys central vision and is the leading cause of severe vision loss in adults over age 55, and currently affects approximately 15 million people? AMD is the deterioration of a part of the retina called the macula, which controls your ability to see fine detail. Macular degeneration progresses differently for every individual. In some, it may advance more slowly, while there are those who may suffer faster loss of vision in one or both eyes.

Pharmanex Eye Formula contains the AREDS2 formulation with the essential nutrients lutein and zeaxanthin, which make up the natural substance known as macular pigment. With regular consumption of these essential carotenoids, you can reduce the onset of AMD and loss of central vision by decreasing the amount of oxidative stress on the macula.

Non-Modifiable Risk Factors For AMD:

• Family History
• Smoking (past or present)
• Age

Modifiable Risk Factors:

• Low Macular Pigment
• Light-colored skin and eyes
• Unprotected exposure to the sun
• Gender – females are more at risk
• Obesity
• Poor diet

Benefits of Pharmanex Eye Formula:

• Preserve vision by increasing macular pigment optical density
• Protective nutrients (lutein and zeaxanthin)

The modifiable risk factors can be greatly reduced by taking the Pharmanex Eye Formula supplements, wearing sunglasses to protect the eyes, and eating a diet with plenty of dark green leafy vegetables. Pharmanex Eye Formula is for you if you experience any of the following symptoms:

• Seeing a blurry or blind spot in the center of your field of vision
