COLUMBUS, Ohio, March 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- EyeScience Labs, a leading resource in ocular nutrition and maker of EyeScience® Macular Health Formula and EyeScience® Dry Eye Formula, has developed a new eye vitamin for people with diabetes. The new product, Diabetic Vision Formula™, was developed in an effort to help protect against potential vision problems associated with diabetic retinopathy, a condition that affects an estimated 4.1 million Americans and is cited as a leading cause of blindness for American adults by the National Eye Institute, a division of the National Institutes of Health.
"EyeScience's new Diabetic Vision Formula™ is a very comprehensive, scientifically formulated ocular vitamin," says Jeff Northup, President and CEO of EyeScience Labs. This announcement comes after years of extensive research and clinical studies, which found the ingredients in Diabetic Vision Formula™ help promote ocular health and may protect from Diabetic Eye Disease.
"The Diabetic Vision Formula™ was formulated to help target the oxidative stress that can negatively impact the blood vessel system in the eyes for people that live with diabetes," continues Mr. Northup.
Early onset of diabetic retinopathy may present itself with no symptoms or can seem like blurry vision. Diabetic retinopathy may also result in cataracts (a clouding of the vision) or glaucoma (nerve damage that causes pain and vision loss).
"Our Diabetic Vision Formula™ contains safe, clinically-proven ingredients, which include 11 different nutrients such as: Vitamin B-6, Omega-3, Niacin, Lutein, Alpha Lipoic Acid, Cinnamon Bark, Bilberry, and Grapeseed Extract," said Mr. Northup, "together, these powerful carotenoid antioxidants and other essential nutritional ingredients can help support healthy ocular blood vessels."
