In this episode Matt Maruca, CEO of Ra Optics, and citizen scientist joins us to unpack the science behind how light drives mitochondrial function and circadian rhythms.
High amounts of screen time cause the body to give us vision- and quite often posture-related feedback clues. It can also impact thinking and mood. Let’s focus on the visual system, because clues in this area are a common type of feedback, and an indication of visual system stress.
Matt Maruca, CEO of Ra Optics, shares with us 8 steps to optimizing, both mitochondrial and vision health through the power of light
Being fully aware of the hurdles of screen time—we spend as much time looking at screens as anyone else—we wanted to create a product that would support and protect the health, resistance, and resilience of the visual system. We designed Qualia Vision to help our eyes cope with the challenges of the digital age hose a set of ingredients that could support visual health and performance.
Qualia Vision combines eye-healthy plant pigments, super fruit extracts, colorful spices, antioxidants, taurine, and vitamin B12. In this blog post, we’ll share some of the reasons why we included each ingredient in Qualia Vision.
During the development of Qualia Vision, volunteers with high amounts of daily screen time agreed to take the product and give feedback about their experiences of screen time eye strain issues. Here are the survey results.
A very significant part of the human brain is involved with analyzing the visual world. Learn how our eyesight affects the brain.
Matt Maruca, CEO of Ra Optics, shares with us how light drives mitochondrial functions, the science behind blue light blocking glasses triggering melatonin secretion, explores the eye/brain connection, and gives us the 411 on blue light blocking glasses (spoiler alert: they’re not all created equal).
Dr. Meir Schneider joins us to share his extraordinary, holistic journey in healing his eyesight naturally and to discuss how our vision differs from our ancestors, the role the brain plays in our visual system, and easy-to-implement exercises to help us neurohack our vision.
Vision is the process through which light stimuli received through the eyes are transformed into a mental image by the brain. It is our sense of sight. This process is accomplished by the visual system, the sensory system that enables vision, which includes the eyes—the sensory organ for vision—and the neuronal visual pathways of the brain, from the retinas to the cerebral cortex.
