Age Related Macular Degeneration

Age-related eye health issues destroy central vision and are the leading cause of vision loss in Americans over 55. While there is no cure and the effects are irreversible, you can intervene and influence your patients' eye health outcomes.

Nutritional Intervention
Nutrition plays a huge role in the course of age-related eye health issues. In fact, 2 modifiable risk factors for age-related eye health issues are poor diet and low macular pigment optical density, which are both manipulated by nutritional intake. Supplementing with nutrients like those researched in the AREDS 2 study have already been demonstrated to improve patients’ eye health. Additionally, one study showed that supplementing with just 8 mg of zeaxanthin can help:
Improve visual acuity by 1½ lines on an eye chart
Improve contrast sensitivity
Improve foveal shape discrimination
Proven Nutritional Intervention

Using clinical research, EyePromise developed a line of eye health nutraceuticals designed to provide solutions for your at-risk patients to your advance-stage patients and everything in between. We’ve even created a zinc-free formulation in case you conduct genetic testing, your patient already takes a multi-vitamin, or your patient has been advised to avoid zinc.

The EyePromise Restore line is the most innovative eye health nutraceutical line for your patients with age-related eye health issues.

Why Do Our AMD Products Stand Out?
Zeaxanthin
This critical antioxidant is chosen by the retina to protect central vision. Additionally, zeaxanthin is accumulated in the fovea (center of the retina) 2 times more than lutein. While the eye itself chooses to include more zeaxanthin in its own protection, most eye vitamins choose to match the ratio found in the diet, which is 5 to 1 lutein to zeaxanthin. EyePromise recognizes the importance and scarcity of zeaxanthin and, therefore, chooses to include 4x more than other products.
Lutein
While zeaxanthin is extremely important, lutein is no scrub. This antioxidant plays an important role in protecting vision from dangerous blue light, and it's been found to help support many other parts of the body.
