Free Radicals in Ophthalmic Disorders

Product Description
Free radicals are molecules with an unpaired electron in the outer shell or an electron that was damaged from either attack or from a poor splitting bond. After a free radical is formed they will continue to attack other molecules, which usually results in the damage of tissue or destruction of a healthy cell. Free radicals arise normally through metabolism, however sometimes the body’s immune system will create them on purpose to neutralize viruses and bacteria. Free radicals are implicates in many ophthalmic disorders including uveitis, optic nerve damage, retinal ischemia, and macular degeneration.
