Retinex® contains the powerful ingredient Lutein, a natural carotenoid that is found in many fruits and vegetables as well as in the eye, where it is partly converted into zeaxanthin. Each Healthspan Retinex tablet contains 10mg of natural Lutein and 1,000mcg of Zeaxanthin.

In the eye, Lutein is deposited mainly in the lens and in the central retina (the macula) where it is partly converted into Zeaxanthin.

Our experts recommend upgrading to OptiVision®, which contains 12mg Lutein along with 280mg DHA and 40mg EPA, 2,400mcg zeaxanthin plus vitamin B2 to support the maintenance of normal vision.

I have macular degeneration and take Retinex every day?

29 August 2015

I have MDD and the specialist said the Lutien would help, and I am on a program of injections [ 28 up to press ] my condition is improving so I hope the tablets are helping.

29 August 2015

Have been taking it for some time due to an eyesight problem.
My eyesight problem has now lessened.

29 August 2015

y wife was recommended to use this product by her optician. It certainly seems to help stop her sight from deteriating.

28 August 2015

Very easy to use, competitive price and quick delivery

26 August 2015

Live in France so grateful can get a delivery here at a reasonable price. Always prompt delivery.

Taking this as a protection for my eyes since having cataract ops. Convenient and easy to take.

25 August 2015

Bought for elderly mother as optician suggested I purchase a product to help with Macular Degeneration, as I trust Healthspan I chose these tablets.

24 August 2015

I take for maintenance - so far fine

21 August 2015

Taking these just generally for my eyes and not for a specific purpose

19 August 2015

Pleased with all the products esp Q10 which I take for restless legs, having read in your magazine about another lady who found they helped. All products we take seem to be very good, but we do find them expensive, we can afford them for the time being,but an increase might tip the balance for us.

19 August 2015

I have AMD and I take two every day. I cannot honestly say they are slowing ddwn the AMD but it does seem to have stabilised.

17 August 2015

Don't know yet but have had cataract surgery at a relatively young age, so hope my eyes won't deteriorate any further.

17 August 2015

I believe that these tablets, in addition to a healthy diet and sun glasses, provide me with additional protection for my eyes.

14 August 2015

I have AMD and I think the tablets are keeping it from deteriorating too fast

13 August 2015

Good product

11 August 2015

I have not upgraded as i take the necessary Vitamins on a regular basis

10 August 2015

I have regular eye check ups due to possible generic issues. Since I have been taking Retinex my problems have not got any worse so my doctor feels that they are helping. I have only given a 'good' score though as they are expensive and they are never included in any offers.
