New Supplement Based on AREDS 2 Formula

Bausch + Lomb (B+L) has introduction a new PreserVision AREDS 2 Formula eye vitamin and mineral supplement, the first and only commercially available supplement in the United States that exactly matches the updated formula based on the latest clinical evidence from the National Eye Institute (NEI) Age-Related Eye Disease Study 2 (AREDS 2), according to the company.

The daily dose of new PreserVision AREDS 2 Formula provides the same levels of all six clinically proven nutrients as the NEI-supported formula: vitamin C (500mg), vitamin E (400 IU), lutein (10mg)/zeaxanthin (2mg), zinc (80mg zinc oxide), and copper (2mg cupric oxide).

B+L introduced a PreserVision AREDS 2 Formula that included lutein, zeaxanthin, and 1,000mg of omega-3 fatty acids in 2010, reflecting existing evidence of potential benefit for these nutrients that also formed the rationale for the AREDS 2 protocol. When the AREDS 2 findings were published, Bausch + Lomb confirmed its intention to reformulate PreserVision AREDS 2 to match the updated recommendation. The reformulated product is available at food, drug, and mass retailers throughout the United States. Call (800) 828-9030 or visit www.bausch.com.
