EyeScience Macular Health Formula was created by a leading retina and macular specialist and based on two decades of research.
The nutritional supplements recommended for AMD came from the results of the Age-Related Disease Studies – AREDS and AREDS2.
The AREDS study, published in 2001, evaluated the best vitamins for macular degeneration and its progression. The study followed 3,600 participants who had AMD or drusen, the substance that causes AMD.
The AREDS2 study launched in 2006. This study included 4,203 participants and showed that beta-carotene, what was included in the original AREDS formula, increased the risk for lung cancer for those who were former smokers. The AREDS2 formula substitutes beta-carotene for lutein and zeaxanthin.
The Macular Health Formula includes additional nutrients beyond those in the AREDS2 formula that are beneficial to vision health and slowing the progression of macular degeneration. These additional nutrients include bilberry, grape seed extract, alpha lipoic acid, selenium, and folic acid.
A formulation beyond AREDS 2
The AREDS studies found that taking certain supplements provide superior eye health more than others. Our Macular Health formula goes beyond the nutrition recommended in the AREDS 2 formula, offering eye health benefits that may help slow down the progression of eye conditions that lead to vision loss.
Created by leading retina & macular specialists
Based on two decades of research, our formulation is a unique blend of vitamins, herbal extracts, amino acids and antioxidants to help give your eyes the nutrients they need to stay healthy.* The AREDS 2 formulation consists of Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Lutein, Zeaxanthin or Vitamin A, Zinc and Copper.
Our Macular Health Formula includes 14 nutrients to support eye health, including those in the AREDS 2 formulation.
Rich in carotenoids
Several research studies have proven that diets rich in carotenoids (lutein, zeaxanthin), antioxidant vitamins such as C and E, and the omega-3 fatty acids help slow down the progression of eye conditions.* Our formula was designed to incorporate these findings and provide extra eye support.
