We recently passed our 20 year anniversary of manufacturing eye vitamins. So it's a good morning to reflect on how we manage to continue our success, year after year, while other vitamin companies and resellers close shop. And the answers are more than boasting (and it's not really boasting if we're telling our VisiVite family is it?). No, the answers help you to confirm the thoughtful choice you made when you trusted us with your eye health.

Unless you’re in the eye field, it’s easy to confuse the terms cataracts and glaucoma. And yesterday, I completed another dozen surgeries, some for cataracts, others for glaucoma. So what’s the difference?

Delta is coming, then Epsilon, then Zeta. As the Covid-19 virus is allowed to replicate in the population in unvaccinated people, it will continue to mutate, and thus persist, because that’s how many viruses continue to survive.
