Clinicians VisionCare with Lutein
Recommended by Burwood Hospital Low Vision Clinic!
What do I use it for?
- To support eye and macular health and central vision
- Support healthy eye aging
What makes it special?
Uniquely combines nutrients from recent eye studies, but with improved ingredient quality using natural lutein and zeaxanthin, vitamin E and selenium. In an easy 2-capsules-a-day formula, which is suitable for use with any medications.
How does it work?
VisionCare provides antioxidants and trace minerals that are proven to support macular health. These are combined with lutein, zeaxanthin and carotenoids naturally present in the macular pigment. Lutein and zeaxanthin support the eye by helping absorb photo-toxic blue light and provide free radical support. By supporting macular pigment this helps the body maintain central vision health.
