Probiotics are mainly known for their effects on digestive health or immune function. The aim of this randomized, double-blinded and placebo-controlled study was to examine the effects of heat-killed Lactobacillus paracasei KW3110 on ocular disorders caused by visual display terminal (VDT) loads.

62 healthy subjects have received a placebo or the probiotic for 8 weeks. The main outcome was the change in ocular fatigue induced by VDT.

A small in vitro study has shown that L. paracasei was able to prevent blue light-induced human retinal cell death. Results of the clinical study showed that the supplementation reduce VDT-induced eye fatigue. At 4 weeks, a lower fatigue was measured in a sub-group of subjects with the higher degred of eye fatigue (p = 0.02).


Therefore, this study provides preliminary results on a potential ocular benefits of a supplementation in heat-killed Lactobacillus paracasei KW3110.
