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.

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.

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.

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.

09 August 2015

Much cheaper at Healthspan compared to Norwegian prices and more mg.

07 August 2015

I was advised by my optician to obtain this product to slow down the growth of cataracts.

06 August 2015

I am taking these tablets more as a supplement/treatment. My mother having had Macular degeneration in both her eyes and as a consequence lost her sight. I consulted with my Optician who understands and agreed the tablets should prove beneficial. I do hope so.

04 August 2015

My optician says that early signs of age-related macular degeneration have disappeared.

04 August 2015

Advised to take lutein because of early retinal changes

04 August 2015

Used by husband who finds it very good, ordered online - received by post fast as promised.

04 August 2015

At 73 and with floaters etc. I need to take care of my eyes. Tablets not easy to swallow however.

04 August 2015

Helps maintain visual health in my 80s

02 August 2015
