Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD) is the leading cause of blindness in people over the age of 50. Though often experienced as a sudden distortion or loss of vision, it is actually a slow, progressive deterioration of the macula (the part of the eye needed to provide sharp central vision). The patient is often unaware of the condition until serious, many times irreversible, visual symptoms occur.
What can I do to prevent AMD?
Along with lifestyle changes, numerous articles have been written in medical journals discussing the role of antioxidant nutritional supplements for patients at risk or diagnosed with macular degeneration. In particular, the Multicenter Ophthalmic and Nutritional Age-Related Macular Degeneration Study encouraged doctors to suggest the use of dietary supplements for their patients. Most recently, a ten-year Age-Related Eye Disease Study (AREDS) showed that a specific combination of high potency antioxidants, vitamins and zinc slowed the progression of AMD, reducing the risk of vision loss from this disease.
NATURE’S Eye Vitamins®
NATURE’S Eye Vitamins® were formulated by Dr. Augustine Kellis, an ophthalmologist, and fellowship-trained oculoplastic surgeon, with these study results in mind. While using the vitamins and zinc combination shown effective in the ARED study as a starting point, the additional supplements of Lutein and Bilberry were added, leading to a complete formula for maximization of macular health.
- Added Lutein and Bilberry
- 100% Natural Ingredients
- No Animal Byproducts or Preservatives
Besides the added protective effects of lutein and bilberry, our vitamin is made from 100% natural ingredients, without the use of animal by-products or preservatives. Additionally, the capsule form of delivery provides greater absorption than a tablet form. The capsule can even be opened and mixed into water or juice, for patients who prefer this method of taking supplements.
