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!

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.

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. I do a great deal of lecturing throughout the country as part of my committment to education.

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.

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).

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.

VisiVite Formulas with Lutein and Zeaxanthin

The blue light in computers and cell phones, LED lights and Compact Fluorescent lights can not only strain your vision, it can be harmful to your retina.

Between the invisible wavelengths of ultraviolet and infrared light, there is the rainbow of visible light. Most light is safe for the eyes, but there is a narrow band in the blue light spectrum that some studies suggest can hasten the death of retinal cells, and in turn, possibly lead to macular degeneration.

The specific band of blue light most harmful to the retina and to the retinal pigment epithelial cells was identified to be at 415 nm to 455 nm, and it is actually blue-violet in color. People most at risk are those exposed for long periods of time to those wavelengths, those who have family histories of macular degeneration and smokers.

There are two steps you can take now to protect yourself from harmful blue light.
  1. Blue-Blocking Indoor Eyeglasses - These lenses are designed to block the most dangerous blue light while allowing other blue light (such as blue turquoise) to pass through. Optical companies that currently offer blue-blocking technology include Nikon (SeeCoat Blue), Essilor (Crizal Prevencia), PFO Global (iBlu coat), HOYA (Recharge), VSP (UNITY BluTech) and Spy Optic Inc. (Happy Lens).
  2. Lutein-Zeaxanthin Ocular Supplements - The minimum levels recommended for effectiveness in absorption and rendering blue-violet light least damaging is 10 mg Lutein and 2 mg Zeaxanthin. These levels are met in all VisiVite AREDS 2 Formulas for macular degeneration, and is also found in VisiVite's newest additions, VisiVite Super Lutein 444 (containing 44 mg Lutein and 4 mg Zeaxanthin) and VisiVite NightSight Formulas (Contains 20 mg Lutein, 4 mg Zeaxanthin, 1 mg Astaxanthin, 45 mg European Black Currant, 2 mg Saffron)
