Macular Degeneration Vitamins "A.R.E.D.S" Formula

Postby Bill-W » Fri Oct 20, 2006 9:03 pm

A.R.E.D.S. stands for a 20 year study done called the Age Related Eye Disease Study. This study showed that the formula used in the study helped prevent the onset of the wet form of macular degeneration in the other eye when a person had the wet form in one eye and the dry form in the other eye.
It makes sense that it could possibly prevent or at least suppress the onset of macular degen. all together in people predisposed to the wet form of macular degeneration.

If a person has or had the wet form of macular degeneration in both eyes then the formula was shown to have no benefit in preserving or stalling the progression of the disease. Therefore there is no need to take the vitamins.

VitEyes get my vote. They are available only online or by making a phone call. They ship you a three month supply with free shipping for $39.95.

As a healthcare provider in ophthalmology we also recommend that you take 6mg to 20 mg of lutein daily. Which comes in the VitEyes already with no extra cost. Fish Oil is also believed to be beneficial to the eyes.

Compared to Ocuvite and ICaps wich sell for approx. $54.00 for the same three month supply. And you still have to purchase a seperate supliment of lutein, since B&L and Icaps do not have lutein in there vitamins.

B&L and ICaps have a Smokers Formula that replaces the Vitamin A with Lutein.

Anyway you get more bang for your buck with VitEyes. Plus they have other vitamins and supplements that may also be beneficial.
VitEyes also has the AREDS formula in a powder form for those that have a hard tome swallowing pills.

Their website address is http://www.viteyes.com
The phone number is 1-888-890-EYES(3937)

Hope someone finds some use with this.
