Doctors Exclusive Eye Formula
Doctors Exclusive Eye Formula is an exclusive, doctors-only premier eye supplement that is AREDS2-compliant and formulated with essential vitamins, minerals, herbs, and amino acids. Doctors Exclusive Eye Formula is a complete eye protocol that supports the entire eye’s natural response to free-radical damage and nourishes the cornea and retina.
Doctors Exclusive Eye Formula contains the powerful carotenoids lutein and zeaxanthin, which have been proven to travel through the bloodstream, pass the Bruch’s membrane, and deposit throughout the macula while building macular pigment optical density (MPOD). Healthy MPOD protects the macula from dangerous blue light radiation and delays the ocular aging process.
Antioxidants found in the tear film, cornea, and aqueous humor defend against oxidative stresses that lead to damage. Doctors Exclusive Eye Formula is the perfect way to ensure these antioxidants stay at optimal levels for maximum protection.
Functional vision can also be affected by blue light (UVA), which penetrates to the retina—specifically the macula. Concern about blue light exposure from not only the sun but also from cell phones, computer screens, tablets, laptops, HDTVs, and more is growing, and defending against damaging blue light is essential to long-lasting functional vision. Lutein and zeaxanthin are the two main antioxidants (carotenoids) that defend against blue light damage. Doctors Exclusive Eye Formula contains levels of lutein and zeaxanthin that are clinically proven to build macular pigment optical density. That is why Doctors Exclusive Eye Formula is the right choice for maintaining healthy vision.
What Makes Doctors Exclusive Different?
The philosophy of Doctors Exclusive is to keep our formulas as close to nature and as absorbable and bioavailable as possible for maximum patient benefit.
Ingredients Backed by Science
Doctors Exclusive uses ingredients proven to be clinically effective by the latest research studies. Each formula is evidence-based, making Doctors Exclusive the best choice for your patients’ vision.
Chemical Form of Ingredients
Different chemical forms of an ingredient will be absorbed differently by the body. One example is lutein. Lutein is available in esterified (synthetic) form and non-esterified (natural) form. Esterified lutein is poorly absorbed and therefore of little or no therapeutic benefit to patients. Non-esterified lutein, the form found in Mother Nature, has a much higher absorption rate and is therefore more bioavailable. The non-esterified, natural form is the type used in AREDS2. Doctors Exclusive uses only the non-esterified form of lutein and other ingredients proven effective in AREDS2, thus providing the highest level of patient care.
Doctors Exclusive uses easily digestible vegetable-based capsules and soft gels to deliver our highly bioavailable ingredients in the most effective way for optimal patient care, unlike some companies that use compressed tablets.
Many products on the market today contain potentially harmful “other ingredients.” If you see titanium dioxide, magnesium stearate, dyes of any kind, or allergens on a label, the product may cause unwanted side effects. The only “other ingredient” in Doctors Exclusive Eye Vitamins is plant fiber, another reason our products are the safest evidence-based products for your patients.
Defining Industry Terms
AREDS 2 (Age Related Eye Disease Study 2)
The largest clinical trial ever conducted by the National Eye Institute, National Institutes of Health. The Age Related Eye Disease Study 2 helped establish the standard of care in the eye care industry by defining a specific formulation of ingredients for increasing macular pigment density and treating early and intermediate AMD. The Doctors Exclusive line contains the exact formulation used in the AREDS2 study as well as other ingredients that recent research studies have shown are effective.
MPOD (Macular Pigment Optical Density)
A layer of pigment comprised mainly of the carotenoid’s lutein and zeaxanthin in the back of your eye (your maula) that filters light and prevents damage. Doctors Exclusive Multivitamin and Eye formulas have clinically proven levels of Lutein and Zeaxanthin making them the choice of eye doctors across the country to maintain proper eye health and healthy vision.
The wavelength of light that can damage vision. In today’s technological world, we are constantly exposed to harmful blue light from our smart phones, computer screens, HD TVs, and sunlight. Doctors Exclusive MultiVitamin Formula and Eye Formula contain levels of the ingredients lutein and zeaxanthin clinically proven to build macular pigment density to protect against blue light damage.
Carotenoids are plant pigments responsible for bright red, yellow and orange hues in many fruits and vegetables. The specific carotenoids that make up MPOD are Lutein and Zeaxanthin. The Doctors Exclusive Multivitamin and Eye formulas contain clinical levels of these carotenoids making Doctors Exclusive perfect for preventing damage and maintaining healthy vision.
Nutrients that prevent cell damage by neutralizing free radicals and preventing oxidative stress. Doctors Exclusive Multivitamin and Eye formulas contain therapeutic levels of antioxidants helping to maintain an appropriate antioxidant/free radical balance for optimal health and healing.
