You're going to be hearing about the new age-related eye disease (AREDS) II study results soon - this is the study that attempts to decipher whether and which eye vitamins might help prevent macular degeneration.

The original AREDS formulation consisted of the following:

  • 500mg Vitamin C
  • 400 IU Vitamin E
  • 15 mg beta-carotene which is equivalent to 25,000 IU
  • 80mg Zinc
  • 2mg Copper (to prevent anemia when taking zinc supplements)


Here's the gist of the results:If you have early macular degeneration, supplementing with an AREDS formula eye vitamin plus additional lutein and zeaxanthin, but without beta-carotene reduces the likelihood of progression to advanced stage disease by about 10%.

The other significant finding was that in former smokers, people who were taking beta-carotene were more likely to develop lung tumors (0.9% without vs. 2% with beta-carotene).

So I took a look at the major commercial eye vitamin formulas and found a total of 13 options! So I matched up the results of the new AREDS II study, I added in the findings of the original study, and I was able to narrow it down for you to just one choice.

The formulas I researched were:

  • ICaps Lutein & Omega 3 Formula; AREDS Formula; Eye Vitamin Multivitamin Formula; and Eye Vitamin  Lutein and Zeaxanthin Formula
  • Ocuvite Adult 50+ with Lutein, Zeaxanthin, and Omega 3; Eye and Multivitamin; Lutein and Zeaxanthin; and Lutein
  • Centrum Specialist - Vision
  • Preservision AREDS Softgels, AREDS Lutein, AREDS Tablets, and AREDS 2

1-day Acuvue for Astigmatism

Until now, those of us with astigmatism have had limited choices in the daily disposable contact lens option, but now, thanks to 1-day Acuvue for Astigmatism, 85% of people with astigmatism have a contact lens that they can pop in when they wake up and throw away before they go to bed.

These lenses are ideal for people who only wear their lenses occasionally since they don't require any cleaning or care or for people with active, busy lifestyles who don't want to mess with cleaning and disinfecting their lenses on a regular basis.

And now with our fit guarantee, you can try the lenses risk free and see how they work for you!
