Our practice has been recommending VisiVite Dry Eye Relief TG-1000 to every dry eye patient we see. The patients love it. They feel a great relief from not having to constantly feel a burning or itching sensation and being free of hourly tear drops. Our practice recommends these products to everyone!

We see approximately 120 patients per week with about 15% having or being at risk for macular degeneration. Using the AREDS as our reference we became aware of the importance of nutritional supplements in the prevention of the progression of macular degeneration. This along with various other studies on the importance of vitamins for general eye health and AREDS2 prompted us to look for a supplement that fit the needs of our patients. Visivite showed itself to be the only company who took pains to offer the ratio of different vitamins supported by this research.

We have been recommending VisiVite for several years. AREDS2 formulation vitamins are the mainstay in the treatment of dry AMD which affects about 1.7 million Americans. We find that the VisiVite vitamins fit the needs of our patients. We can recommend different formulations based on the patients' history. The quality is unsurpassed, they are well tolerated which increases patient compliance. At "Island Retina" our mission statement is to provide outstanding retinal care in a warm and supportive environment. I have been practicing for more than 20 years. We love taking care of patients with retinal disease including diabetes, macular degeneration and retinal detachments. Our practice is unique in that we have a surgery center,we are involved in several national research projects as well as our own research, and we have a satelite office in Commack, NY. I do a great deal of lecturing throughout the country as part of my committment to education.

I've been in practice for 36 years. We see many patients with Macular Degeneration and dry eyes. As a general Ophthalmologist, I see patients with varying Eye problems including cataracts and glaucoma. Based on the AREDS2 study, a vitamin like Visivite is the only treatment for Macular Degeneration available today.

This combination of nutrients, found in supplements like Ocuvite and VisiVite, is now widely recommended for people with moderate or severe macular degeneration. Current or former smokers may be better off with VisiVite's Smoker's Formula, which leaves out the beta-carotene (beta-carotene supplements my increase the risk of lung cancer in smokers).

I recommend VisiVite to all my macular degeneration patients. Based on the latest AREDS2 study, lutein and zeaxanthin absorption was increased when beta-carotene was eliminated. Therefore, I advise all my AMD patients to take VisiVite AREDS2 Plus+ Gold Formula for maximal protection, as it contains all the necessary ingredients as recommended by this latest research.

Burning or Red Eyes
Nutritional support for optimizing tear production and promoting healthy tear film layers may assist with symptoms related to burning eyes:

Omega-3 fatty acids: Essential fatty acids like DHA, ALA and EPA modulate inflammation in the tear glands and eyelids. Since chronic inflammation in the eye is commonly associated with burning eyes, nutrition that modulates the inflammatory response may provide relief. Omega-3 fatty acids are most famously found in fish oil; plant sources of Omega-3s include flaxseed oil and borage oil.

Vitamin C and Vitamin B6: These vitamins are important because they help the body to absorb and use the Omega-3s that have such critical role in promoting a healthy inflammatory response. Vitamins C and B6 work to optimize Omega-3 benefits for eye comfort.

Polar phospholipids: Supplemental orthomolecules including phosphatidylcholine, phosphatidylserine, and phosphatidylethanolamine help the tear glands to promote healthy tear film layers. These nutrients optimize all three layers of tear film, promoting well-hydrated eyes that are free of stinging, burning discomfort.

Mucin and phytosterols: Natural phytonutrients that play a key role in eye hydration, mucin and phytosterols support healthy tear production and hydration -- promoting eye comfort while minimizing burning.

Turmeric: With its active constituent curcumin, the famed Indian spice turmeric modulates inflammation in the eye's lids and tear glands -- promoting tear film stability and overall eye comfort.
