All in one OCULAR NUTRITION capsule! More Lutein! More Vitamin E!, More Vitamin C! More Beta Carotene! Minerals! Plus 8 nutrients only in the special advanced ocular nutrition formula!
This is the official ocular nutrition endorsed by Paul Harvey for age-related macular degeneration (AMD).
17 important nutrients for eye nutrition. This product is formulated to the most advanced standards for eye nutrition with 17 essential nutrients including high potencies of vitamins E, C, beta carotene, certain minerals and lutein. Lutein is a potent antioxidant found in abundance in fruits and vegetables. Research now shows that Lutein in conjunction with other antioxidants helps filter out visible blue light, a major cause of light damage to the eyes. This amazing nutrient offer one of the most exciting advances in ocular nutrition.
How does it compare to:
VisionPro: Formula for ocular nutrition contains essential ingredients VisionPro does not, including: Calcium (as Ester-C MV), Astaxanthin, Magnesium, Stearate, and Gelatin. Visionpro does not contain the Patented Ocucel Lutein Complex with FloraGLO Lutein. And VisionPro is not endorsed by Paul Harvey - who as we all know only recommends products that work! Is your eye site really worth saving a few dollars?
OcularProtect (OculaRX): Formula for ocular nutrition contains essential ingredients this products does not, including: Citrus Bioflavonoids, and Astaxanthin. And Premier Formula for Ocular Nutrition has is more potent per serving. And OcularProtect is not endorsed by Paul Harvey! And these facts hold true for all Ocular Products. None of them has the patented FloraGlo Lutein Complex and none of them are endorsed nationally by the popular Paul Harvey. Remember, it's not worth saving a few dollars and sacrificing your eyesite.
This product may be useful for the treatment of angiogenesis-dependent diseases like the 'wet' form of macular degeneration. As we age, the macula (the small part of the retina at the back of the eye that provides sharpness of vision) begins to break down and produces small white particles called drusen, which are seen in a fundus photograph and in a cross-sectional diagram above. These can be an early sign of macular degeneration, but they do not usually cause vision loss by themselves and not all patients who develop drusen go on to develop macular degeneration.
The dry or atrophic form of age-related macular degeneration, seen above in fundus photography and in a cross-sectional diagram, is the most common form of macular degeneration, accounting for about 90 percent of cases. Although this form of AMD does not usually cause severe vision loss, it can progress to the wet form, so patients who have it should see their ophthalmologist regularly
The wet or exudative form of AMD, seen here in fundus photography and in a cross-sectional diagram, affects about 10 percent of AMD patients. It is caused by the growth of abnormal blood vessels at the back of the eye that can leak fluid and blood. The wet form of AMD typically causes significant vision problems in the affected eye and can progress very rapidly and cause permanent vision loss.
I have the dry type of macular degeneration and of course have difficulty seeing including the television. When I began taking my vitamins the vision in my left eye was 20/70 and the vision in my right eye was gone.
After only 6 ocular nutrition bottles I have begun seeing color and images on the tv.
I am very please with my results and am looking forward to further improvement,

What is Angiogenesis?
Angiogenesis is the formation or growth of new blood vessels. In the most severe form of age-related macular degeneration (known as 'wet' ARMD) abnormal angiogenesis occurs under the retina resulting in irreversible loss of vision. The loss of vision is due to scarring of the retina secondary to the bleeding from the new blood vessels.
What is macular degeneration?
The eye is often compared to a camera. The front of the eye contains a lens that focuses images on the back of the eye. This area, called the retina, is covered with special nerve cells that react to light, like film in a camera. These nerve cells are very close together in the middle of the retina where the eye focuses the images that we see. This part of the retina is called the macula.
What is AMD?
There are two types of AMD - the dry (atrophic) form and the wet (exudative) form. The dry form of AMD affects about 90 percent of AMD patients and usually begins with the formation of tiny yellow deposits called drusen in the macula. Drusen usually do not cause serious loss of vision, but can cause distortion of vision. However, for reasons that are not yet understood, sometimes drusen will cause the macula to thin and break down, slowly leading to vision loss.
