As we age we must take the time and spend the money to keep our eyes healthy and strong. Very small sacrifice, if one. I have been a customer many years and VisiVite has helped me and my family with the maintenance of our eye health. It's crutical!
Specific vitamins due to my risk for AMD, has been recommended by my physician (retina specialist). I decided to also add the Ocular Support to continue my good reports. Eating proper foods and taking the VisiVite vitamins based on Areds will assist with my good eye health. I appreciate the reports and general information I have been receiving.
Mother and father both had wet macular degeneration, so I'm trying to do what I can. I showed this to my nutritionist, and she was so impressed, she's recommending it to her other clients. I'm very faithful and take two capsules every day. I'm 62 now, and nothing happening yet, so I'm very happy. Thank you.
Is it suitable for vegetarians ?
Yes. For additional information please visit our web site at http://www.visivite.com/balanced.html
My family has a history of macular degeneration. Is there any product that will help me prevent this condition?
The genetics of macular degeneration were previously underestimated. Subsequent to the Human Genome Project, however, there has now been shown to be about a 2/3 chance of developing some level of macular degeneration in blood relatives - a percentage that is much higher than the population that does not have a family history of macular degeneration. In light of this data, we are recommending VisiVite Balanced Ocular Support for family members of macular degeneration patients because it contains high levels of Lutein (15 mg), Zeaxanthin and Astaxanthin (4 mg) and other antioxidant ingredients that have been clearly shown to promote macular health and improve macular function. At the same time, due to absence of Zinc and Vitamin E, we prefer this formula for people with healthy eyes because of the lack of possible side effects. We do not expect any eye vitamin formula prevent macular degeneration. However, many studies now exist in the literature that demonstrate that macular degeneration progression can be tempered or its progress even halted with targeted high dose nutritional supplementation.
Please send a list of the ingredients (in printable form) so that we can pass them on to our doctors.

I have dry eye and flotant in my eye
We would recommend our VisiVite Dry Eye Relief:<br /><br />http://www.visivite.com/dry-eye-relief-tear-stabilization-formula.html
It is visivite balance ocular support safe for smoking people?
VisiVite Balanced Ocular Support does not contain high dose beta-carotene, and thus may be taken by smokers and former habitual smokers.
Why doesn\'t Astaxanthin have a mg amount on your label?
Why doesn't Astaxanthin have a mg amount on your label? The astaxanthin is a part of the proprietary blend with the zeaxanthin for a total of 4 mg in the blend.
Would I take this in addition to an AREDS formula?
Lutein and Zeaxanthin have GRAS certified status up to 150 mg daily of each, so you could double up on these two ingredients and add them to your AREDS or AREDS2 supplement. VisiVite Balanced Ocular Support is also extremely beneficial to take for general eye health, particularly for people who do not have any ocular disease, but want to continue to see their best, especially if they have a family history of macular degeneration.
I have photophobia and I do take supplements that are working for vision but not helping the glare sensitivity to sun and night driving. Could this product help and why?
Glare can be due to dry eye, cataracts, and loss of corneal clarity among other things. VisIVite Balanced helps with daytime light sensitivity by improving the pigment density of the retina. It also helps with difficulty seeing at night by the C3G in the European Black Currant improving Rhodopsin. For nighttime glare issues, we recommend using Dry Eye Relief TG-1000: http://www.visivite.com/dryeyerelief-tg1000.html
As a prevention to problems, is it better to take the balanced support or just start taking AREDS?
We recommend VisiVite Balanced Ocular Support as an excellent, all around supplement, particularly if there is a family history of eye problems.
Are the Ingredients from GMOs?
There are no GMO ingredients in VisiVite Balanced Ocular Support.
