The effects of blackcurrant consumption and eye strain have been trialed by many groups of people.

These effects that were studied are mediated or lessened by supported blood flow in the peripheral circulation when blackcurrants were consumed.

Blackcurrants are shown to greatly lessen visual fatigue following prolonged exposure to computer screens. And they work only after two hours from consumption.

The results were the following:

  • Dark adaptation was significantly more with 50 mg anthocyanin.
  • Visual fatigue is significantly lessened with blackcurrant treatment.
