Your Eye Vitamins Report



While there is​ no single pill that will restore perfect vision or​ optimal eye health,​ there is​ new evidence from Bausch and Lomb Pharmaceuticals that certain minerals and vitamins may be part of​ the​ eye's normal defense system against damage.

The formulation of​ high-potency zinc and the​ anti-oxidants vitamin C,​ vitamin E,​ vitamin a​ (as beta-carotene),​ selenium and copper have been shown to​ be effective in​ assisting the​ eye's defenses against certain degenerative conditions.

The formulation,​ called OCUVITE,​ developed by B&L Pharmaceuticals,​ was based on​ clinical and research studies that suggested that deficiencies in​ dietary zinc and antioxidant micronutrients occur in​ patients who are at​ possible risk of​ developing macular degeneration and other ophthalmic conditions.

National surveys have demonstrated that the​ elderly,​ the​ population most at​ risk for macular degeneration,​ are frequently found to​ have inadequate diets that are often deficient in​ zinc and other micronutrients. the​ retina normally has one of​ the​ highest concentrations of​ zinc in​ the​ body,​ and researchers have suggested that zinc plays a​ vital role in​ the​ metabolism of​ the​ retina. in​ patients with macular degeneration or​ cataracts,​ long-term oxidative damage is​ thought to​ contribute to​ the​ pathogenesis. Zinc and antioxidant micronutrients may be part of​ the​ eye's normal defense system against oxidative damage.

Ocuvite,​ containing more zinc than any leading multivitamin/multimineral product,​ provides the​ eye doctor with a​ dietary supplement that may be useful in​ the​ patient whose diet is​ deficient in​ zinc and antioxidant micronutrients.

Zinc is​ an​ important cofactor of​ many enzymes and an​ essential mineral for tissue repair,​ skeletal and tooth development,​ metabolism,​ protection of​ the​ liver from chemical damage,​ maintaining the​ proper concentration of​ vitamin a​ in​ the​ blood,​ and for white blood cells to​ function in​ the​ immune system.

Ocuvite and Ocuvite Extra is​ a​ fortified combination of​ antioxidants,​ select B-vitamins and zinc and is​ based upon the​ most recent clinical publications on​ antioxidants. it​ is​ the​ #1 recommended supplement by eye care specialists.

We'll keep you posted about further vitamin and mineral developments that may help strengthen the​ eyes and improve deteriorating vision.
