Vizual Edge Vitamins

Vizual Edge vitamins contain minerals and nutrients the eyes need to perform better. The two major components are Lutein and Zeaxanthin. It also contains vitamin A, C, D, and E. Lutein and Zeaxanthin are carotenoids. Carotenoids are simply the pigment found in colored plants. Yellow, orange, and red specifically. Their job in plants is to protect the plant from harmful sunlight. Our eyes also use these carotenoids for protection against sunlight and they provide nourishment to the nerves for better visual performance. We have been treating older people that have macular degeneration with Lutein for years. It is the only thing that prevents them from losing their vision. I have followed several of these patients over the years and most that use the vitamin do not progress to lose their vision and a good number have improved. So I know for a fact that carotenoids and antioxidants work to improve vision. These Lutein doses are less than what the Vizual Edge vitamin contains.  Now there are studies in young, healthy people using Vizual Edge vitamins that prove there is increased visual performance and reaction time with their use.

In summary, Lutein and Zeaxanthin will make baseball players see the pitch faster and react to it quicker. It will also make them less light sensitive on sunny days. It provides the macula the necessary nutrients to perform at its peak. These nutrients are also found in dark green leafy vegetables like spinach, kale, broccoli, yellow and red bell peppers, cayenne pepper, paprika and corn. The yolk of eggs also has a lot of Lutein. So if the athlete has a great diet full of these vegetables then he probably doesn’t need this supplement. If he doesn’t, then he will benefit from using Vizual Edge vitamins.

Vortex Keratopathy

This is a great example of vortex keratopathy, a type of corneal deposits. They are recognizable by their distinct branch like appearance. While this can be caused by many things, in our patient's case it has been caused by a using a specific medication over a period of time. These deposits rarely cause any vision problems

Stray Eyelash

Eyelash that has became embedded in the lower puncta and had to be extracted. The lower puncta (also known as lacrimal puncta) is basically the drainage system that allows excess tears to drain from the eye to the back of the nose. This is why when you cry your nose runs! Now back to this pesky eyelash.....
