My eyes adjust more quickly to low light conditions and generally feel more comfortable. Will buy again!
I have been taking Ocuvite for over a week now and have experienced nausea and upset stomach. One day I decided not to take the Ocuvite for a couple of days and had no nausea or upset stomach. This morning I took one pill after breakfast and the nausea reappeared. I believe I will ask my eye doctor to recommend something else, or not take anything at all.
Doctor prescribed PreserVision to hopefully slow progression of disease in my husband's eyes. Dr. will retest in 6 months to see what effect, if any, it makes. Side effect: he has a dermatology issue that has been treated, unsuccessfully, by 4 dermatologists over the past 12 years. About 3 weeks after starting the lutein dosage, we noticed the swelling and inflamation in his fingers cleared and the cracks started healing. In the successive 3 weeks, his hands look better than they have in the past 12 years! For that alone, my husband will continue this supplement.
I used Lutein, it certainly did help my eyes (as I noticed when I stopped taking it!), but unfortunately, as someone else has mentioned, it gave me asthma. It took me a while to realise it was the lutein causing it, but I have tested a few times & it definitely was. Lutein is extracted from marigold flowers, so I don't know if that has anything to do with it.
