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.

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.

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.

The Facts on Eye Floaters

Eye floaters can make it nearly impossible to go about your daily activities. You’re constantly plagued by spots in front of your eyes. There are several symptoms of eye floaters, including:
  • Black spots in front of the eye
  • Flashing lights, making it difficult to drive
  • Fuzzy vision
  • Cloudy strands resembling cobwebs in front of the eye
Why do floaters occur?
Eye floaters tend to develop as you age. Your eye’s vitreous starts to shrink, and small clumps of gel begins to form in the eye. The vitreous also becomes slightly stringy. These clumps are the “floaters” you are seeing in your eyes.

Eye Floaters and Related Eye Diseases
Eye floaters can also be signs of more serious eye diseases, such as:

  • Vitreous Detachment: The vitreous gives the eye its round shape. Tiny fibers connect the vitreous to the retina. As the vitreous shrinks due to age, the fibers pull on the retina, and may break, causing vitreous detachment. Vitreous detachment is a very common eye disease and typically does not result in blindness. However, it is best to consult with your eye doctor about how eye floaters may result from vitreous detachment.


  • Retinal Detachment: Unlike vitreous detachment, retinal detachment is a dangerous condition that can result in blindness. The retina is the light sensitive inner lining of the eye that transfers messages through the optic nerve to your brain. An increase in the number of eye floaters can signal retinal detachment, and it is important you contact your eye doctor immediately. Laser surgery can usually be used to correct the problem, although surgery may be required.
Eye Floaters Treatment
Eye floaters can be extremely annoying for anyone who experiences them. They can affect your driving skills, ability to read, and hobbies like painting and photography. Surgical removal of the gel and replacement with salt water is rarely recommended.

VisiVite.com also carries Eye Floaters Treatment. Our Dry Eye Relief Tear Stabilization Formula can help free you from eye floater symptoms.
