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.

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.
