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!
Monique M. Barbour, M.D.
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.
Dr. Kendal Piatt, O.D.
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.

Ronald E. P. Frenkel, M.D.
We recommend that all of our patients take VisiVite AREDS2-based vitamins, due to the evidence based nature of the formula.
Marc Lay, OD
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.
Martin L Weinhoff, MD
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).
Marvin Moe Bell, M.D., M.P.H.
Physician and Author
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.

Which Vitamin E is in Your Eye Vitamin?

While you may be saving a few pennies on your supplement that contains a cheaper form of Vitamin E, you are losing half the benefit of this important antioxidant.

Not all vitamin E is the same. Many cheap supplement manufacturers cut corners by using synthetic vitamin E -- a more affordable form (dl-alpha-tocopheryl) that "does less" than natural vitamin E.

Did you know?
Synthetic vitamin E is made from petrochemicals, a.k.a. petroleum.

Natural Vitamin E vs. Synthetic Vitamin E

When you consume natural vitamin E -- either from food or from supplements -- you get the superior form that matches what nature intended. Natural vitamin E is recognized by the body and absorbed more fully than its synthetic counterpart. Research has suggested that:
  • Natural vitamin E is 100% more bioavailable than synthetic vitamin E
  • Natural vitamin E is twice as effective as synthetic vitamin E
  • The body retains natural vitamin E in its tissues longer than it retains synthetic vitamin E
Vitamin E for Eye Health
Under the eyes category, vitamin E is a highly-regarded super-nutrient. High vitamin E intake is associated with a 20% reduction in risk of developing AMD. The Age-Related Eye Disease Study (AREDS) found that a mixed supplement of vitamin C, vitamin E, beta-carotene, zinc and copper reduced the risk of developing moderate-to-severe vision loss by 25%. Those with moderate to advanced AMD were found to reduce their risk of further vision loss by taking this antioxidant combination.

About Vitamin E Products
When buying a vitamin E supplement, check the label to see if it contains natural or synthetic vitamin E.
  • Natural Vitamin E = d-alpha-tocopherol
  • Synthetic Vitamin E = dl-alpha-tocopheryl
