Viteyes is one of the UK’s leading brands of eye health supplements and is widely recommended by ophthalmologists across the UK. The reason for this is the strong clinical base which underlies the formula used. Specifically over 15 years research conducted by the National Eye Institute (AREDS and AREDS2) as well as other facilities such as the North Chicago VA Medical Centre both in the United States.


The Royal College of Ophthalmologists (RCO) Interim Recommendations for the Management of Patients with Age-related Macular Degeneration (AMD) – AMD Interim Guidelines – version 3: Nov2007 states that a product based on this (AREDS) formula should be recommended to patients.

The range consists of a number of products which contain various vitamins, minerals and other nutrients including:

  • vitamin A which contributes to the maintenance
    of normal vision.
  • vitamin C
  • vitamin E
  • zinc which contributes to the maintenance
    of normal vision.
  • copper
  • lutein & zeaxanthin
  • omega 3 – EPA and DHA which contribute to the
    maintenance of normal vision

There are many nutritional supplements on the market. Very few of them offer as wide a range of products with research to back-up their claims to help promote macular health and reduce the risk of developing age related changes.

Viteyes is one that does and the range has several key features.

  • Viteyes 2 contains the exact formula proven by AREDS2
  • Viteyes Original contains the exact formula proven by AREDS
  • Viteyes products are supplied in three month bottles resulting in more competitive pricing and reduced packaging. For example, based on the RRP of 90 days supply, Viteyes Original is less expensive than other comparative formulas such as Preservision®.
  • Subject to local circumstances, all Viteyes products can be prescribed under the NHS on an FP10.
  • Viteyes are made of highly soluble, easy to swallow capsules which can even be pulled apart to take with food.
  • Viteyes products contain no yeast, wheat, wheat gluten, lactose, soy protein, dairy, preservatives, flavour or artificial colourings.

Viteyes products can be bought from opticians, pharmacies and certain ophthalmic clinics as well as directly from Butterflies Healthcare.
