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.

Cheaper than in Spain as the optician had prescribed Lutein and said after taking them for a year my eyes had improved.

Wide range of excellent products.

31 March 2015

Have avoided age-related macular degeneration, which so plagued my mother's last years. Has also slowed down onset of cataracts.

27 March 2015

I don't know whether Retinex is helping me or not because I can't see any difference in my eyesight

Thank you for your review.
To gain maximum benefits from our supplements, we would advise taking the product for at least 3 months, however, depending on whether there has been a diagnosed health issue, significant improvements may take longer to be achieved. This product would need to be taken on a daily basis over several months.

The product is a dietary supplement that contains lutein, which does not heal but stops the degeneration of macula in the eye. Only after long-term administration of lutein, the ophthalmologist can determine whether the degeneration of the macula has ceased. It would take at least a year or more to pronounce such an appraisal.

Thank you for your review - Please accept our apologies for the
unsatisfactory packaging.

We are pleased to confirm that replacements have now been despatched to you.

this product is very good value

26 March 2015

not really able to tell yet.

25 March 2015

These were actually for my wife, and I don't think she's had a chance to try them properly yet.

25 March 2015

Bought specifically to prevent mascular degeneration but used sparingly due to cost

24 March 2015

As our eyes are deteriorating, we are taking it to protect the macular and we're not in a position to judge.
