While there is no single pill that will restore perfect vision or optimal

eye health, sightcare opticians there’s new evidence from Bausch and Lomb Pharmaceuticals

that certain vitamins and minerals may be part of the eye’s typical defense system against harm.

The formulation of high-potency zinc and the anti-oxidants vitamin C,

vitamin E, vitamin A (as beta-carotene), selenium and copper have been

proven good at helping the eye’s defenses against some chronic conditions.

The formulation, called OCUVITE, developed by B&L Pharmaceuticals, was

based on clinical and research studies which suggested that deficiencies in

antioxidant micronutrients and dietary zinc occur inpatients that are at

possible chance of developing macular degeneration as well as other ophthalmic conditions.

National surveys have demonstrated that the elderly, the population most

vulnerable for macular degeneration, are generally found to have inadequate diets which are often deficient in zinc and also other micronutrients. The

retina typically has among probably the highest concentrations of zinc in the body,

and researchers have suggested that zinc plays a crucial role in the metabolism of the retina. Patients with macular degeneration or

cataracts, long-term oxidative damage is believed to help the pathogenesis. Zinc as well as antioxidant micronutrients may be a part of the eye’s

normal defense system against oxidative damage.

Ocuvite, containing much more zinc than any leading multivitamin/multimineral

item, provides the eye doctor with a dietary supplement which could be

helpful in the patient whose diet is lacking in zinc and antioxidant micronutrients.

Zinc is a vital cofactor of countless enzymes and an essential mineral for

tissue repair, skeletal and tooth development, metabolism, protection of

the liver from chemical damage, maintaining the appropriate concentration of

vitamin A in the blood, and for white blood cells to function in the immune system.

T Young Opticians\/Croydon Eye Centre (CLOSED), 12 St George's Walk ...Ocuvite and Ocuvite Extra is a fortified blend of antioxidants,

select B-vitamins and zinc and it is based upon likely the most current clinical publications on antioxidants. It is the #1 recommended supplement by eye

treatment specialists.
