Viteyes Focuses on Eye Health Nutrition during Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD) Awareness Month

By: PRLog

FARMINGTON HILLS, Mich. - Feb. 1, 2022 - PRLog -- Since 2008, the organization Prevent Blindness has set aside the month of February as Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD) Month. In honor of this important month-long awareness-raising event, Viteyes is showcasing its AREDS 2 line of eye health supplements. All Viteyes® AREDS 2 supplements are manufactured in the USA using only the highest quality ingredients for macular health.

According to a March 2021 article published in the "Journal of Clinical Medicine" (, "Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is the leading cause of blindness in people over age 50 worldwide, and the third leading cause of blindness overall."  What's more, the disease is becoming more prevalent "as the world population ages." Around the globe, cases of the sight-robbing eye condition are estimated to "reach 288 million by 2040."

While those statistics might sound sobering, there are steps individuals can take to ward off AMD, which damages the center of the retina (the macula), causing blurry vision, dulled sight and impaired visual focus. To that end, proper nutritional balance is one of the easiest measures people can implement to help protect their vision from deteriorating as they age.

"Your mother was on to something when she insisted you eat your fruits and veggies," explains Alison Gers, Viteyes VP of Marketing. "Foods like broccoli, kale, peppers, strawberries and asparagus are rich in vision-supporting vitamins like E and C and lutein.  When combined with healthful minerals like copper and zinc, these vitamins provide an antioxidant force field to help protect the retina from age-related damage like macular degeneration. That's why a nutrient-rich and balanced diet can lessen your chances of having AMD."

Getting the proper support from one's diet, however, isn't always feasible, or even possible. To fill in the nutritional gaps, Viteyes developed its line of AREDs 2 macular health and support eye supplements based on the National Eye Institutes AREDS2 study. As a differentiation factor, the brand's formulation incorporates less zinc than the competition, thereby making it easier to digest. AREDS 2 comes in classic capsule and soft gel, AREDS 2 advanced (with bilberry/grapeseed), AREDS 2 plus Omega-3, AREDS 2 zinc free and AREDS 2 powder plus multivitamin formulas. Many of their formulas are also now allergen-free and utilize natural vitamin E.

Eye physicians worldwide recommend the entire Viteyes line of eye health supplements. To find the formulation that is right for one's individual vision needs, visit the Viteyes website ( All AREDS 2 macular health and support formulas can be purchased there as well as on
