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.

Answers



How do I find the right eye vitamin formula for me?

For macular degeneration supplements, there are three questions that will guide your eye vitamin choice:

  1. Do you smoke now or have you smoked habitually within the past 20 years. If you are a non-smoker, visit http://www.visivite.com/amd-non-smoker.html. If you are a smoker or former smoker, visit http://www.visivite.com/amd-smoker.html.
  2. Do you have wet macular degeneration in one eye, or is your macular degeneration progressive? If either one of these is yes, we recommend one of our Premium AREDS 2 eye vitamins.
  3. Do you take Coumadin (warfarin)? If so, we recommend that you take VisiVite E-Free Formula.

I have a family member with macular degeneration. What do you recommend I take?

For several years, doctors have incorrectly informed their patients that macular degeneration is sporadic and not genetic. But the human genome project and new research indicates that up to 75% of macular degeneration can be explained by various genetic vulnerabilities. Additionally, Omega-3 fatty acids have been shown to prevent the development of macular degeneration in healthy eyes. Therefore, we now recommend that people with high risk family histories take VisiVite Balanced Ocular Support. This supplement contains high doses of the carotenoids Lutein, Zeaxanthin and Astaxaxanthin, as well as additional premium antioxidants, and is safe for both smokers and non-smokers.

Where do you obtain your ingredients?

All of our vitamin supplement ingredients are U.S. based and naturally sourced whenever possible. Independent laboratory testing for purity and potency is performed on every single manufacturing lot. The VisiVite manufacturing facility is GMP Certified and meets the strictest international criteria for hygiene and security.

What are your shipping fees?

Shipping within the United States is by United States Priority Mail with Delivery Confirmation and is free for orders of 4 or more bottles. UPS Ground is also available for those addresses that do not receive U.S. Mail. Shipping fees are posted on our shipping information page.

I have difficulty swallowing. Do you sell any vitamin liquids?

Although we do not sell liquid versions of our supplements at this time, the following formulas are supplied in capsules that can be opened and their contents emptied into a beverage or sprinkled on food:

How large are the pills?

  • VisiVite AREDS Alpha Formula, VisiVite Lutein+ Formula, VisiVite AREDS2 Select, VisiVite AREDS 2 White, VisiVite AREDS2 Plus+ Gold, VisiVite Balanced are Size 00 capsules. These are moderate-sized, elongated and round-ended. All are soft and readily swallowed.
  • RBI Vision Performance is a Size 0 capsule, which is smaller.
  • Dry Eye Relief Tear Stabilization Capsules are moderately large liquigels. Unlike the capsule formulas listed above, these cannot be opened.
  • Co-Defense is a moderately large, oval tablet.

How many pills are in each bottle?

  • All Vitamin Science Formulas contain a one-month supply.
  • VisiVite AREDS Alpha Formula, VisiVite Lutein+ Formula, VisiVite AREDS2 Select, VisiVite AREDS 2 White, VisiVite AREDS2 Plus+ Gold, VisiVite Balanced contain 60 capsules and are taken one capsule twice daily.
  • Reziva and R.B.I. Vision Performance contain 30 capsules and are taken once daily.
  • Dry Eye Relief contains a one-month supply, which is 120 gelcaps. Directions are two capsules taken twice daily.
  • Co-Defense Multivitamin formula contains 100 tablets for a three-month supply.

Why do you use Zinc Oxide and Cupric Oxide?

Zinc, an important ingredient in both AREDS and AREDS2, was supplied as the salt, Zinc oxide. And copper, supplied in those studies as cupric oxide, is necessary to prevent a zinc-induced anemia. But are other forms of Zinc (zinc gluconate, zinc picolinate, zinc acetate, zinc sulfate, zinc oratate) better?

Although heavily marketed as having higher absorption or better effects on the body, the National Institutes of Health Office of Dietary Supplmements states that exotic-sounding and heavily marketed alternative forms of Zinc and Copper have no better absorption or bioavailability than any other.

Because zinc oxide and cupric oxide were the forms used by the National Institutes of Health AREDS and AREDS2 research, VisiVite uses these forms exclusively in its eye supplements.

What are the costs for international shipments?

International customers frequently request that shipments of VisiVite be made by Parcel Post to save on costs. Unfortunately, customs offices frequently reject the import of nutritional supplements when sent in this way. We have partnered with GlobalShopex to provide inexpensive international shipping. Please click the green International Checkout button to obtain these special rates. Most international customers order six or more bottles of vitamins to defray shipping charges.

What credit cards do you accept?

  • Visa
  • MasterCard
  • American Express
  • Discover

I don't want to give my credit card information online. Can I still order vitamins?

Most customers order online. Online ordering is fast, safe and secure, and uses 128-bit encryption. If you order via our web site, you will note that the Billing and Shipping Information page begins with https:// which indicates the use of a Secure Server. Additionally, VisiVite.com has been awarded a McAfee Secure Web Site Certificate.

Why don't you sell your vitamins in stores?

Mass-marketed vitamins that are sold in pharmacies, grocery stores and discount chains are confusing to shoppers and often contain lesser quality ingredients in quantities that are not effective against eye diseases such as macular degeneration and dry eye syndrome. VisiVite.Com sells only direct to consumer, via participating eye care professional offices and in select nutritional specialty stores. Educating the consumer about what makes VisiVite eye vitamins unique and helping them to find a customized solution to their eye nutrition needs is critical to the success of our products.

I take a multivitamin every day. Isn't that good enough?

Beginning with the National Eye Institutes Age Related Eye Disease Study in 2001, which was the first research showing the benefit of nutritional supplements in the treatment of macular degeneration, three points were proven:

  1. Only specific ingredients had benefit against eye disease.
  2. Scientific research, rather than hundreds of opinions in the lay press, should dictate the optimal ingredients and dosages of eye vitamins.
  3. Extremely high levels of these ingredients were necessary to have an effect against eye disease.

Inexpensive mass-marketed multivitamins contain many ingredients but have no proven benefit against the progression of macular degeneration or the treatment of dry eye syndrome.

How long will it take to get my vitamins?

You can avoid order delays by making sure to provide us with your correct billing and shipping address. The most common reasons for order delays are failing to enter the billing address on file with your credit card company.

  • Within the United States: Orders are shipped the following business day. United States Priority Mail takes between 2-5 days, excluding Sundays. UPS Ground takes 2-10 business days, depending upon distance from Long Island, New York.
  • Outside the United States: Orders are shipped the following business day via Global Shopex and takes 7-14 days. Additional delays can occur in your country's customs office.
