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.

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.

Treatment of Macular Degeneration in Non-Smokers

In November 2001, the National Eye Institute published the first scientific study that proved beyond a doubt that a specific nutritional supplement mixture significantly slowed both the progress and severity of Age Related Macular Degeneration.

The AREDS Formula, named for the Age Related Eye Disease Study, consisted of the following nutritional components and quantities:

  1. Beta-carotene form of Vitamin A: 15 milligrams (25,000 International Units)
  2. Ascorbic Acid form of Vitamin C: 500 milligrams
  3. Vitamin E: 400 milligrams
  4. Zinc Oxide form of Zinc: 80 milligrams
  5. Cupric Oxide form of Copper: 2 milligrams

Since the AREDS results, additional studies have provided evidence that additional ingredients may improve the appearance, health and function of the retina. Specifically, Lutein and Zeaxanthin, which like beta-carotene is a carotenoid found in green leafy vegetables, has been shown to be very beneficial. These two molecules were not included in the original AREDS research because at the time the study was begun, they were not available.

Beta-carotene is found in VisiVite Original AREDS Formula only. Other formulas have replaced this molecule with Lutein and Zeaxanthin, which was found to be more effective. Because this molecule has been shown to be potentially dangerous in people with a history of heavy habitual smoking, these formulas are only recommended for people who have not smoked habitually within the past 20 years.
