  • Most of us know that the key to a healthy body is your eating habits and your diet. Regardless of your health conditions, your body needs to consume and absorb specific nutrients in specific minimum amounts in order to function as it should with minimal risk of diseases and health deterioration in general. However, not everyone is able to accommodate the nutritional needs of your body with the right amounts of nutrition. Even if some of us do, not everyone’s body absorbs the nutrition in the food eaten as it should. For this reason, ocular or eye vitamin supplements have been specifically engineered to boost your intake of nutrients that your eyes need.

    AREDS and AREDS2

    While their effects may be felt more in the long-term than in the short-term, research has shown that your eye health is significantly preserved and improved when your eyes enjoy the benefits of supplementary vitamins and minerals. Most notably, the National Eye Institute in the United States conducted 2 research studies that forever changed our view on eye health.

    The first research indicated that the ‘AREDS forumla’, which consisted of Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Beta-Carotene, Zinc, and Copper, in fact reduces the risk of Age-related Macular Degeneration (AMD), essentially the deterioration of the central part of your retina that absorbs light and translates it into images. A few years later, a second study improved the ‘AREDS formula’ and concluded that Lutein and Zeaxanthin are effective alternatives to Beta-Carotene. These two studies are known as AREDS and AREDS2 respectively.

    Today, pharmaceutical and healthcare producers have fortunately made the AREDS and AREDS2 formulas available for everyone in the form of ocular or eye vitamin supplements.
