When it comes to long-term eye health protection, don't get sidetracked

When it comes to your eye health I know it's easy to get sidetracked. You've most likely been hit from all sides, from the mega-box stores selling uber-cheap eye vitamins and supplements with sketchy or incomplete nutrients, to the weekend super sales flyers touting every remedy known to man. But what is it exactly that you are looking at? Are they truly complete nutritional supplements, formulated exclusively for total and long-term eye health in the correct dosages and forms? Or are they multivitamins that claim to cover eye health but only contain dustings of SOME of the necessary nutrients?

Blend of bilberry and black currant helps improve night vision

If you plan your whole day to avoid driving at night, you'll want to know more about the antioxidant-rich powerhouse, bilberry! With its colorful history as a night vision aid during WWII, bilberry is rich in anthocyanosides, which go to work in the tiny blood vessels and capillaries in your eyes, improving flexibility and circulation. And black currant, another antioxidant dynamo and a natural cousin to blueberries and cranberries, has been shown in clinical studies to produce measurable improvements in night vision…within just 30 minutes! Black currant contains anthocyanosides and other flavonoids, which also help improve circulation to and within the eyes.

The lutein in Vision Essentials helps with glare tolerance

Few, if any other eye vitamins and supplements contain the dosage of lutein found in Vision Essentials. Shown to promote the health of your retinas, maculas, lenses, and optic nerves, as well as support visual acuity, Vision Essentials provides a full 15 mg of lutein! This potent antioxidant is shown to significantly improve glare tolerance—the recovery time for seeing clearly again after being "blinded" by bright light.

Beta-Carotene helps with clear eyesight

This organic compound synthesizes a chemical needed for clear eyesight. And, when combined with other eye-supporting nutrients, beta-carotene works even harder to maintain eye health.

Vision Essentials is a total solution for comprehensive vision support—plus other key nutrients will help keep your eyes healthy for a lifetime!

Vision Essentials also contains alpha lipoic acid, taurine, N-acetyl L-cysteine, glycine, and vitamin C. These nutrients combine to shield delicate eye cells from the damaging oxidative stress caused by UV light. In addition, Vision Essentials gives you eyebright, an often overlooked herb that helps promote a proper inflammatory response and eases sensitivity to light, and zeaxanthin to help support proper lens density, which is associated with better visual acuity.

All in all, there are 17 powerful nutrients in Vision Essentials. Each and every one is crucial to healthy eyes, especially as you age. They support every single aspect of your vision and eye health and help to shield you from damaging UV rays. But most important, they'll give you real results that you AND your doctor will be able to see.

Vision Essentials (120 capsules, 30-day supply) is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 54.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Vision Essentials About ten years ago I was having serious problems with my eyes. I had frequent episodes of burning, watery eyes. Sometimes night driving was only possible with sunglasses due to the oncoming headlights exacerbating the problem. [...] As a subscriber to Health and Healing I had been reading about Vision Essentials and ordered my first bottles in spring of 2005. After only a couple of weeks I noticed the difference. I have had no more episodes of burning, itching, watery eyes. Night driving is no longer a problem. Nine years later I am still symptom free. I am so thankful for these eye vitamins and will never stop taking them. My current age is 72.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Vision Essentials I did not purchase this for myself, but for a friend. My mother has taken this for several years after being diagnosed with [an eye condition]. Her eye doctor told her the only thing he knew to do was to take an eye vitamin. She had been getting your booklets in the mail and decided to try it. When she returned to the doc he could not believe the difference. He told her to keep doing whatever she was doing. Each year was a better report and this past year [...]! She is 73 yrs. old and 20/20 vision with her reading glasses, now. Thank you!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 20/20 I started taking Vision Essentials 1 1/2 weeks ago on Saturday. usually I avoid driving on rainy nights because of the bright lights, that Tuesday night got caught in the rain and it did not bother me. Had eye appointment on Wednesday morning. my vision was 20/20, I was reading the bottom line. My left eye had been blurry for a lone time. it appears to be better. All of this happened within a few days, excited to see how it will be in a few months.I thank God for the work He's doing thru you, Dr. Whitaker, Thank you!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Vision Essentials I used [another product] for four mos. after seeing their ad. on TV. I didn't see any difference. Literally! After using Vision Essentials for one week, I noticed the soreness, dryness and the needle in the eye pain going away. Now after two or three weeks, I feel like my old self. Before I had to keep on finding more powerful eye lube. I had to lube my eyes about every hour and a half to two hrs. Now two or three times a day. I am amazed!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Visual Clarity Restored! I have confidently been using this excellent herbal remedy for several days now; won't be without it whenever I must drive long distances. I perceive sharper contrasts and colors whenever I take this formula. I also feel that my depth perception is greatly enhanced, as well. I absolutely won't be without it whenever I'm out and about, these days. Try it for yourself and SEE what you've been missing!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Vision Essentials Have been taking another supplement for my eyes and thought they worked pretty well. Then my mother asked me to try Vision Essentials, what a difference. Night vision restored, brighter vision, tremendously improved. Recommend the product to everyone, especially if they are over 50.Thanks for your God given abilities and products.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Vision Essentials It is too soon since I purchased to rate the outcome, however, I was very impressed with the review of the nutritional contents. I was disappointed to learn upon arrival that you suggest taking 4 capsules per day! My advice upfront is for Healthy Directions to work on finding a way to reduce the quantity but maintain the benefit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Vission Essentials success. We believe this product is very good. Both my wife and I have been using it for several years and at our last eye exam we both were told our eyes were better that at the last exam. We told the Dr. why we thought this happened and gave him some literature about Vision Essentials. I don't think he believed but we do.

Science and Quality

Billberry and Black Currant Anthocyanosides

In a double-blind, placebo-controlled study, subjects given 50 mg of black currant anthocyanosides (BCA) adapted significantly better to the dark than those receiving the placebo. What's most impressive is those night vision improvements happened in just 30 minutes! After taking BCA, the study participants were able to make out images significantly sooner. Plus, they had less eye fatigue when performing a visually tiring task.1


Studies indicate that lutein supplementation supports visual acuity in older patients. One study examined subjects' tolerance to glare. After 4 months of taking lutein and zeaxanthin daily, glare tolerance greatly increased. By 6 months, the time needed for subjects to see clearly again after viewing a bright glaring light significantly decreased.2


In the 6-year AREDS research, scientists found that supplementation with lutein, beta-carotene, vitamins E and C, zinc, and copper helped to support and preserve long-term eye health, helping to support a healthy macula and normal vision.3

Compare Formulations

Altogether, the specific combination and science-based nutrients in Vision Essentials mean less eyestrain, greater comfort, and sharper vision (day and night). Don't take a chance with inferior, untested brands; your eyesight is simply too valuable to risk.
