Question: How big are these capsules? I can't use large capsules? Does it come in powder form to dissolve in water?<br /> Answer: The capsules are size 00. For people who have difficulty swallowing, these capsules may be opened and the powder dissolved in liquid or placed over food.<br /><br />Question: I cannot swallow pills. Can the VisiVite Green Formula be chewed or opened and poured into liquids or food? Thank you.<br /> Answer: Most nutritionists suggest &quot;eating&quot; the capsules with food rather than trying to swallow them with water for people who have difficulty swallowing capsules. These capsules may be also opened and the powder dissolved in liquid or placed over food. <br /><br />Question: You said that Green Formula and AREDS2 Plus Gold Formula have exact same ingredients, but I noticed that the Zeaxanthin in Green Formula is from OPTISHARP while that in AREDS2 Plus Gold Formula is from OmniXan and FloraGLO. Are they the same thing?<br /> Answer: Both have the preferred form of R-R-R zeaxanthin. OPTISHARP is synthetic whereas OmniXan, which is in our most updated VisiVite AREDS2 PLUS+ Formula, is naturally derived from paprika. The compound zeaxanthin, while identical in both formulas, is derived from synthetic sources in the case of OPTISHARP and natural sources in the case of OmniXan.<br /><br />Question: Can I take both green formula at once?<br /> Answer: You can take one capsule twice daily or both capsules at once. To best absorp nutrients, we also recommend taking supplements either with meals or immediately following meals.<br /><br />Question: What are the side effects that I should be aware of?<br /> Answer: VisiVite ingredients are of the highest quality and 99.9% of people taking VisiVite tolerate it very well.<br /><br />Question: Is not dangerous to take a very high dose of selenium?<br /> Answer: 200 mcg Selenium was the amount used in following important study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association:<br /><br />Question: I've taken the Gold formula for about 2 years and recently received an email saying not to order it again because it has Beta Carotene. However, the label on the Gold formula bottle doesn't list Beta Carotene. My Gold formula has 25,000 IU of Vit. A and the Green doesn't have any Vit. A. So why should I switch? <br /> Answer: VisiVite Gold has 25,000 of the precursor form of Vitamin A known as beta-carotene. Because AREDS 2 found the unexpected result of slightly decreased absorption of lutein and zeaxanthin when beta-carotene was also taken, we are now recommending removal of beta-carotene from your eye formula unless you are not getting any other carotenoids. A good switch would be from VisiVite Gold to VisiVite Green formula. The latter is identical to Gold Formula, except for the absence of beta-carotene. You can read more about VisiVite Green formula at As we indicated to all customers, the switch is not urgent; we merely recommend you change when you next order.<br /><br />Question: I have sensitive digestion, plus I take Singulair (asthma) Zantac (acid reflux) and Allegra (allergies). Can this formula with all the different ingredients mix with my meds without causing other problems? <br /> Answer: All VisiVIte formulas use ingredients that are naturally-sourced whenever possible and based in the USA. Unlike tablets that use binding glues, VisiVite capsules are readily digested. Tolerability rates for all VisiVite products exceed 99.8%. There are no known interactions of VisiVite i-Defense Green Formula with any of your medications.<br /><br />Question: why do you put soy, starch,and the other crap in the there gmo also in the pills.thnks<br /> Answer: The soy is our natural source of vitamin E; we use purified soybean oil. The starch is used as a processing aid for the zeaxanthin to convert it into a powdered form.<br /><br />Question: Will the I-Defense help with Wet AMD? <br /> Answer: Hello John,<br /> <br /> We recommend our Premier Ocular Formula No. 2 for the wet form of AMD:<br /><br />Question: Is it suitable for vegetarians ? <br /> Answer: There are beef and beef derivatives on the capsule. The capsule can be taken apart and mixed with food or liquid.<br /><br />

My doctor is amazed!
My doctor is amazed that there has been no progression of my dry AMD in the last two years! He told me to keep doing what I'm doing. I am thrilled with my VisiVite Green.

I'll be a long-time customer!
I was diagnosed with dry macular degeneration one year ago. Drug store brand vitamins were recommended for me but after taking them for awhile I would get eye aches and headaches. I discontinued the vitamins and aches stopped. I started them up again & aches returned. I tried Green Formula VisiVites with no side effects. After six months on these vitamins the ophthalmologist said my conditions had stabilized and not worsened. At my next exam 6 months later the doctor showed me the computer photo of my retina and declared it had no symptoms of macular degeneration. How often do you get good news from a doctor? Thanks VisiVite...I'll be a customer for a long time.

My daughter found these vitamins.
I have a story to tell you about my vision.

I started having a vision problem in my left eye in early 2004. Went to my eye doctor for an exam and new prescription for new glasses. He then referred me to the retinal eye care center for further testing. There was a small spot in my left eye in the very center of my vision - I could see through the blurry spot (everything looked fuzzy in that spot).

I should now explain that I filled out a very long and detailed questionnaire

at both doctors' offices and was totally honest about my smoking habits.

Both doctors suggested the same vitamins I should be taking. The diagnosis was macular degeneration (dry).

I could no longer read or do cross stitch and was very down and I guess really depressed.

My daughter went to her computer and started searching for information about my problem. She found the web site for

Gee - guess what! The vitamins that both doctors recommended were the wrong formula for smokers. Even though I was honest about my smoking on both questionnaires, apparently, neither doctor bothered to read them.

My daughter ordered the Visivite -Defense Green in January 2005. Within 2 months I noticed an improvement. The spot was getting smaller. The improvement was gradual so I can't really say when I first realized that my vision was o.k. in the left eye. I'm now back to reading and doing my favorite thing - cross stitch.

I must admit I don't understand! I thought the vitamins only slowed down the progression of macular degeneration - not reversed it. I'm so grateful to you and all those who made it possible.

Thank You VisiVite
Just wanted to let you know that I started taking the Green Formula vitamins within a week of being diagnosed with AMD 4 years ago. Today, at my annual check-up, the Doctor said that the MD has not progressed since the time of the original diagnosis and asked if I was still taking the vitamins that a friend recommended. I assured him I was and he said the vitamins could be the reason that the condition has not worsened in the 4 year period.
