Vitasight & AMD

Age-related Macular Degeneration is the most common cause of visual loss in the aged population globally. The World Health Organisation cites AMD as the single largest cause of blindness in developed countries.
"18% of caucasions over the age of 55 years are at risk of AMD. This increases to 30% in people over the age of 74."
AMD is caused by a degeneration in the density and health of the macula, the small central area of the retina responsible for the sharpness, clarity and accuracy of your vision. The health of the macula determines our ability to read, recognise faces, drive, watch television, use a computer, and perform any other visual task thatrequires us to see fine detail.
The macula is protected by the macular pigment (MP).
Age, lifestyle factors including smoking, poor diet, high blood pressure and prolonged exposure to bright light – particularly blue light – reduces the density of the MP exposing the macula and putting it at risk of permanent damage.
The MP is primarily made up of two fat soluble caretonoids, Lutein and Zeaxanthin. These substances are depleted over time and are not produced by the body and therefore need to be sourced either from the food we eat or from nutritional supplements.
Supplementing Lutein and Zeaxanthin helps boost MP and reduces the risk of AMD.
Vitasight provides 10mg of Lutein and 2.4mg of Zeaxanthin in a dose. Consistent use of Vitasight may help slow down the progression the onset of AMD.

"LUTEIN and ZEAXANTHIN are found in yellow and dark green, leafy vegetables and fruits."



Product Information

How Vitasight Works

Vitasight is taken sublingually (under the tongue) to allow for maximum absorption and bioavailability. It is taken in one dose of three squirts per day and has some distinct advantages over similar ocular supplements:

  • Advanced formulation allows for rapid absorption and bioavailability.
  • Contains clinically proven eye nutrients.
  • Easy-to-use dispenser.
  • Easy to take – no capsules or tablets.
  • Unique chelation makes copper and zinc more bioavailable.

For best results it is recommended that Vitasight be taken consistently for at least a year.


Vitasight Ingredients and Benefits

name information
Nicotinamide
(Vitamin B3)
Works with coenzymes to break down carbohydrates, fatty acids and amino acids. It also helps prevent cataracts.
Lutein
(Floraglo™)
A key component of macular pigment. Lutein supplementation helps reduce the risk of chronic eye diseases such as AMD.
Zeaxanthin
(Floraglo™)
Forms a yellow pigment that helps protect the macula from excessive sun damage by acting as a natural sunblock.
Vitamin C
(Ascorbic Acid)
Lowers the risk of developing cataracts. When taken in combination with other essential nutrients helps slow AMD.
Vitamin E
Protects cells in the eye from free radicals which break down healthy tissue.
EPA and DHA
(Life’s Omega 60™)
Omega-3 fatty acids support healthy vision and lower inflammation. Anti-oxidants protect the eyes. Also supports vision development and eye health recovery, improve dry eye syndrome and lower risk of AMD.
Zinc
(Chelated)
Helps bring Vitamin A from the liver to the retina to produce melanin a protective pigment in the eyes.
Copper
(Chelated)
A vital component of the natural dark pigment, melanin, which gives colour to the skin, hair and eyes. Helps maintain the colour of the eyes.
Selenium
Neutralises free radicals which damage the eyes. When combined with caretonoids, vitamin C & E, reduces the risk of AMD.
Vitamin B2
(Riboflavin)
Is a powerful anti-oxidant. Prevents free radical damage and protects the skin and eye health. Also ensure healthy corneas and good vision.
Vitamin B12
(Cyanocobalamin)
Plays an important role in the blood and nervous system. A deficiency can lead to optic nerve neuropathy and decreased vision.
Taurine
Found in high concentrations in the retina and is vital for eye health particularly that of the retina. Declines with age. Helps prevent AMD and other forms of retinal disease.

Screening Programme

There is no substitute for the quality of life good vision offers, therefore early screening and detection of AMD is vital. If detected early, adequate supplementation can slow, halt and prevent the progression of AMD.

Vitasight provides a comprehensive screening and supplementation programme.

The programme consists of 3 steps:


Step 1: Screening
Your optometrist will be able to assess the health and condition of your macular pigment (MP) using a Macular Pigment Screener. This is quick and easy test provides a reading with the density of your MP. Based on this reading your optometrist will decide whether you are at risk of developing AMD and whether you need to take Vitasight.
Step 2: Sign Up
With the help of your optometrist you will be able sign up to have your annual (12) supply of Vitasight either delivered to your optometrist or your home. Payment may be made via debit order or via credit card for your annual supply.
STEP 3: Annual repeat screening
The level of your MP should then be monitored annually. After one year of taking Vitasight, you are advised to have another test in order to monitor the condition of your MP.
