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.

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.
Martin L Weinhoff, MD
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.

Do Treatments Like Avastin Really Work?

If you suffer from macular degeneration, you know that although macular degeneration primarily affects your eyes, it can also play a part in nearly every aspect of your daily life. Unfortunately, there is no cure for macular degeneration, although the National Eye Institute’s recent Age Related Eye Disease Study showed that specific combinations of vitamins and minerals can slow the progression of age related macular degeneration by up to 25%! We’re dedicated to helping you maintain your vision, and would like to separate macular degeneration treatment fact from fiction. Avastin
Avastin has gotten quite a bit of attention from the media lately. Here’s what you need to know about Avastin:
  • Avastin is actually the brand name for the drug bevacizumab.
  • Avastin is given as an injection into a person’s eye by an ophthalmologist. It is recommended that a person receive an injection about every four weeks.
  • It is a treatment for wet macular degeneration. Wet macular degeneration is the more severe form of AMD. The effects of wet macular degeneration are often swift and permanent, so it is imperative to seek out a wet macular degeneration treatment.
  • The effects of Avastin are still being studied, but early results have shown that Avastin is effective in slowing the progression of AMD. Yet, doctors are quick to note that Avastin will still need to be rigorously studied to ensure it is safe.
Macular Degeneration Vitamins
Avastin injections may work to treat wet macular degeneration, but their effectiveness is still being studied. However, the ingredients in macular degeneration vitamins created by have been clinically proven to slow the effects of dry macular degeneration by 25%. Our macular degeneration vitamins mirror the ingredients used in the Age Related Eye Disease Study and were created by a panel of talented ophthalmologists. They effectively slow the progression of dry macular degeneration, often preventing the need to treat wet macular degeneration with Avastin. VisiVite supplements are simply taken twice a day. Some of our most popular macular degeneration vitamins include:
  • VisiVite AREDS Formula – This formula contains the exact amounts of Anti-Oxidants and Zinc used in the AREDS study.
  • VisiVite Smokers Formula – The high amounts of Beta-carotene used in AREDS may increase the risk of lung cancer in smokers. At, we wanted everyone to be able to take advantage of macular degeneration. We created the VisiVite Smokers Formula and replaced the large doses of Beta-carotene with Lutein.
  • VisiVite i-Defense Gold Formula – This is the strongest macular degeneration supplement available for non-smokers. It contains the ingredients used in AREDS, but also includes Lutein and Zeaxanthin to further protect your eyes from macular degeneration.
