Supplment is working very well since I have been taking it have had no progression in degeneration.
Gives me confidence, having this prescribed by my dr. - that it will "deter advancement" of my eye problems !! Thank you!!
had my first check up after i strated using the supplements and the results were perfect there has been no progresion of degeneration what so ever.
We will have to see,how much they will help my eyes.
I am very pleased with these. I was taking another brand for my macular degeneration anda they discontined their zinc free formula. I was thrilled to find these and I asked my opthamologist and he said they were perfect for what I need.
I had LASIK surgery. At the time, it was recommended that I take Moistur-Eyes to help dry eyes. Can AREDS 2 replace the Moistur-Eyes for that purpose?
VisiVite AREDS2 White Formula, without zinc, is a macular degeneration formula specifically designed for patients who have been found to have no CFH markers and two copies of ARMS2 markers. You are inquiring about dry eye, for which Dr. Krawitz's patented Dry Eye Relief capsules - which can be found on this site - have been found to be very successful in controlling symptoms of chronic dry eye.
Has all needed except copper, as cupric oxide, 2 mugs daily, suggested by my doc. What about copper? Thanks for no zinc.
Copper is in AREDS 2 formulas with zinc to prevent anemia caused by the zinc. With a zinc-free formula such as VisiVite AREDS 2 White, there is no need for copper. Copper has no benefit for macular degeneration.
if you are diagnosed with MACULAR DEGENERATION can you take this vitiamin?
Yes, you can. This is the AREDS 2 formula without zinc, which may be detrimental to people with specific genetic markers. Because there is no zinc, there is no risk of zinc-induced anemia, so there is no copper needed in this formula.
Do you have this in powder form?
If you have difficulty swallowing, you can open the two pieces of the vegetarian capsule and put the powder over food or into a beverage.
Is it possible to develop anemia due to the high zinc in AREDS2, even with the 2 mg of copper added?
Copper is provided in a 1:40 ratio with zinc, which prevents anemia that could be induced by zinc. There are many causes of anemia that can occur, however, that are unrelated to zinc.
