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!
Monique M. Barbour, M.D.
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.
Dr. Kendal Piatt, O.D.
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.

East Florida Eye Institute specializes in the treatment of Macular Degeneration, Glaucoma, Diabetic Eye Disease, and Dry Eye Disease. We recommend the use of VisiVite for all of our Macular Degeneration patients.
Ronald E. P. Frenkel, M.D.
We recommend that all of our patients take VisiVite AREDS2-based vitamins, due to the evidence based nature of the formula.
Marc Lay, OD
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).
Marvin Moe Bell, M.D., M.P.H.
Physician and Author
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 Truth About Collagen and Youth

When it comes to wrinkled skin, especially around the eyelids, collagen is not beneficial. While it goes against the convention of what people hear on commercials for beauty creams, the facts are this:

Collagen and elastin are the two protein complexes that provide structure below the skin surface. Collagen is rigid, whereas elastin - as its name implies - is elastic.

In youthful skin, the amounts of collagen and elastin allow the skin to be both taught and stretchy, like a rubber band. But as skin ages, the elastin content diminishes, allowing the "steel girder" protein of collagen to play the more dominant role. This is why plastic surgery doesn't replicate the appearance of youth - it only places the skin on stretch. The skin itself is still less elastic than in youth.

While it is not possible to reverse the appearance of aging in eyelid skin, there are nutritional factors that improve the appearance. Like all nutritional supplementation, it take 2-3 months to build up enough reserves of various ingredients. And once improvement is seen, these supplements have to continue to be taken, since their effects are temporary.


Examine the skin around the eyelids and earlobe skin of chronic smokers and you will notice clusters of very fine wrinkles. This is a result of years of having slightly reduced blood supply and oxygen - known as hypoxia - to those tissues. While skin architecture changes to skin due to hypoxia are largely irreversible without surgery, the elimination of smoking and taking targeted nutritional supplementation to encourage healthy circulation play important roles in healthy tissue function.

Eyelash Loss

Loss of eyelashes occurs in both men and women as they age. Young hormonal balance appears to play an important role in both the structure and function of eyelash follicles.


As we now know, oxidation plays a major role - perhaps the major role - in many conditions associated with aging.

What is oxidation? It is the formation of unstable forms of oxygen that are highly reactive and damaging to other molecules. Unlike the oxygen that we breath, unstable forms of oxygen combine with other molecules in tissues and make new abnormal molecules that are unhealthy for the body's tissues.

Antioxidant nutritional therapy works to neutralize these effects by combining with unstable oxygen forms and rendering the reactive molecules powerless to cause damage.

Dark Spots

Pigmentation increases with age due to several factors, including oxidation, trauma and exposure to the sun's UV light. Creams are ineffective at removing skin pigmentation because they fail to penetrate below the surface epidermis layer to the deeper dermis layer, where the melanin pigment resides.

The dark form of melanin is eumelanin, whereas the blonder form of melanin is pheomelanin. Nutritional supplementation is able to favor creation of blonde melanin rather than dark melanin.
