A Healthy Diet is essential to maintain a healthy macula.  Macular pigment is made up of three (3) dietary nutrients – Lutein, Zeaxanthin and Meso-Zeaxanthin.  It is no accident that nature gives us the ability to selectively accumulate these three dietary carotenoids at the very center of the retina, where vision is sharpest and where color is processed.  Unfortunately, today’s processed foods lack the nutrients required to maximize macular pigment, and it is believed that supplementation is the best way to protect your macula. Each bottle of Macuhealth supplement is a 90 DAY supply.

Replenishing Macular Pigment helps protect the macula (central retina) from disease and optimizes visual performance and is only found in Macuhealth supplements.

Macuhealth Restores Macular Pigment – Exposure to high energy blue light increases oxidative stress on the retina and consequential damage, which over time can lead to Age Related Macular Degeneration (AMD).  MacuHealth supplements helps nature restore macular pigment to optimum levels and may protect against AMD because of the anti-inflammatory and antioxidant nature of Lutein, Zeaxanthin, and Meso-Zeaxanthin.

Macuhealth Improves Visual Performance – Visible blue light has a negative effect on the quality of the optical image formed at the retina. Because shorter blue light wavelengths are scattered more than other wavelengths, thereby resulting in Glare, Chromatic Aberration, and Light Scatter.  These conditions contribute to loss of visual acuity.  Macular pigment selectively filters out damaging and image-degrading visible blue light.

MacuHealth with LMZ3  are the only dietary supplements containing all three (3) critical carotenoids – Lutein, Zeaxanthin and Meso-Zeaxanthin in the same 10:10:2 ratio that make up the macular pigment.  Taken once a day, this small, easy-to-swallow softgel has been clinically proven to restore macular pigments to normal levels for enhanced vision and aids in the prevention of age-related macular degeneration and can slow its progression.

MacuHealth with LMZ3  is approved and recognized by Informed Sport (http://www.informed-sport.com/) and Informed Choice (http://www.informed-choice.org/). This means that every production lot of MacuHealth is tested for purity and that the contents in the capsules match the ingredients on the label.

Fortifeye Macula Defense Zinc free  

Fortifeye Complete Macular Defense Zinc Free supplements is similar to Fortifeye Complete Macular Defense, but without the zinc. Some recent studies state that a percentage of the population with specific genotypes that have macular degeneration may actually be harmed by taking zinc, while others may benefit from it. As a result, Fortifeye Vitamins has developed a zinc free antioxidant eye vitamin for macular degeneration patients.

The only way to know whether zinc is good or bad is to have a genetic DNA test  for macular degeneration . This is a simple in office DNA test to determine what particular type of genes an AMD patient has and will allow eye care providers to customize their nutritional regiment to each patient.  Genotype-directed nutritional therapy could result in significantly  improved future outcomes for many patients with macular degeneration.  DNA testing should become the gold standard now to help the eye care provider determine which supplements to take.  Experts agree that no more than 40mg of zinc should be taken daily.

Retaine Flax    

Retaine Flax supplements are specially formulated to support occular health. Ideal for individuals who cannot tolerate fish-oil based supplements. Contains Omega 3&6, flax seed oil and evening primrose oil.

Retaine Flax dietary supplements from Ocusoft contain a blend of omega-3 and omega-6 essential fatty acids specially formulated to support ocular health in patients with dry eye.

Retaine Flax Supplements for Dry Eye Relief 
New Retaine OM3 and Retaine Flax dietary supplements from Ocusoft contain a blend of omega-3 and omega-6 essential fatty acids specially formulated to support ocular health in patients with dry eye. 

Retaine OM3 contains 800mg EPA and 400mg DHA per serving, while Retaine Flax supplements contains flax seed oil––making it ideal for patients who cannot tolerate fish oil-based supplements. 

Both supplements are packaged in blister cards to improve compliance and reduce the potential for missed doses. 

Retaine OM3 supplements is to be taken twice daily and each package contains 60 softgel capsules, whereas Retaine Flax contains 120 softgel capsules and is to be taken four times daily (or as directed by an eye care professional). 


Why settle for the same old botulinum toxin injection results when you can get more? ZYTAZE is the first and only supplements that provides nutritional support to enhance and prolong the effects of botulinum toxin injections in the treatment of blepharospasm, hemi facial spasm and cosmetic facial procedures.


Unlike patients who use traditional injections alone, those supplementing with ZYTAZE noticed desired results three to five days sooner and some in as little as one day! By supplementing with ZYTAZE  unique blend of zinc citrate and the organic enzyme phytase prior to botulinum toxin injections, you can achieve more consistent results from treatment to treatment.


While botulinum toxin is widely known and used, many are still unaware that it requires zinc to be effective. Zinc consumption through diet alone is inefficient because most foods rich in zinc also contain phytates, a group of phosphate-containing compounds that inhibit zinc absorption. ZYTAZE combines organic zinc along with phytase (an enzyme that effectively breaks down phytates) to aid zinc absorption, thereby enhancing the effectiveness of botulinum toxin injections.

Zytaze supplements are available in convenient blister card packaging containing 10 capsules (five-day supply). The recommended dosage is two capsules each day for four days prior to and on the day of receiving botulinum toxin injections.

Can increase the duration of the injection by 3-6 weeks. Results may vary.
