From the Manufacturer
Studies suggest that improved nutrition may reduce vision loss associated with aging. Thought to be particularly helpful in the prevention of cataracts, age-related macular degeneration, and other diseases that affect your eyes or vision are antioxidants such as vitamins C and E. Ocuvite, the supplement most commonly prescribed by eye-care professionals, has these two important vitamins, as well as vitamin A, zinc, copper, and selenium.
Antioxidant Vitamin and Mineral Supplement
Essential formulation: lutein, key antioxidants, and zinc
We've changed our formulation! Ocuvite tablets now contain lutein...plus more vitamin C and E!
Why add lutein to the proven formulation of Ocuvite? Lutein is a beneficial carotenoid found mostly in leafy green vegetables, and studies have shown that lutein, part of the pigment in the eye, may protect the eye by acting as a filter of harmful light. People with diets high in lutein may have a reduced risk of developing age-related eye disease.*
Derived from marigolds, the 2 mg of lutein in Ocuvite tablets joins other important nutrients such as the key antioxidant vitamins C, E and A (as beta carotene), along with copper, selenium and zinc to help maintain ocular health.*
Is Ocuvite® right for your? For a larger dose of lutein to increase the amount of lutein in the eye, talk to your doctor about Ocuvite® Lutein capsules with 6 mg of lutein. If you're looking for even greater amounts of vitamins C and E, 2 mg of lutein, other essential nutrients, plus all the benefits of Ocuvite®, choose Ocuvite® Extra® tablets.
