Bilberry (25% anthocyanins)
Dr. Diamond's Diamond Eye Health provides extensive nutritional support
specifically formulated for ocular and macular health. Everyday, our eyes
are at risk from various stresses including damage by light, computers and
other electronics, toxins, pollution and eye strain to name a few. As we
age, other damaging factors come from ocular deterioration and result in
various diseases including macular degeneration (AMD) and cataracts which
are two of the leading causes of visual impairment in the US. Both conditions
have an increased risk with age. Helping to preserve the health of aging
eyes is exactly why Dr. Diamond formulated Diamond Eye Health… And it's
safe and effective for smoking or non-smoking individuals.
Dr. Diamond's Diamond Eye Health offers powerful daily protection to slow
the effects of age related degeneration. Scientifically formulated utilizing
nearly three decades of knowledge and expertise, Dr. Diamond also used groundbreaking
independent clinical trials including AREDS, a 10 year Age Related
Eye Disease Study, performed by the National Institute of Health (NIH) on
many of our ingredients including Beta-Carotene, Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Zinc
and Copper; The Veteran's LAST (Lutein Antioxidants Supplementation Trial)
Study and other important trials proving there is an important step that
can be taken to help support eye health!!
Studies show Diamond Eye Health's powerful ingredients have an extensive
range of benefits including:
Diamond Eye Health's synergistic blend of vital nutrients include Beta-Carotene,
Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Zinc, Copper, Lutein (FloraGLO), Zeaxanthin (OPTISHARP),
Bilberry (25% anthocyanins), Eyebright, Citrus Bioflavonoids and Co-Q10.

the National Eye Institute, a department of the NIH announced that two of
our powerful ingredients - Lutein and Zeaxanthin are effective for eye health
as well as in the fight against ocular degenerative disease.
How Does Your Eye Work?
The human eye is an amazing, complex organ that gives us the sense of sight,
allowing us to observe and learn more about our surroundings then any of
our other senses. Our vision works much like a camera. Light rays are reflected
off an object and enter through the cornea, the transparent outer surface
of the eye, similar to a camera lens. The cornea bends or refracts the rays
that pass through a round hole called the pupil. Like the diaphragm of a
camera, the iris, or colored portion of the eye that surrounds the pupil,
opens and closes making the pupil bigger and smaller) to regulate the amount
of light going through. The light rays then pass through the lens, which
actually changes shape so it can further bend the rays and focus then on
the retina at the back of the eye. The retina, which works similar to the
film in a camera, is a thin layer of tissue at the back of the eye that
contains millions of tiny light sensing nerve cells called rods and cones.
Cones are found in the center of the retina, in an area called the macula.
In bright light conditions, cones provide clear, sharp, central vision and
detect colors and fine details. Rods are located outside the macula and
extend all the way to the outer edge of the retina. They provide peripheral
or side vision, as well as allow the eyes to detect motion and help us see
in low light and darkness. These cells in the retina convert the light into
electrical impulses. The optic nerve sends these impulses to the brain where
an image is produced.

What is Macular Degeneration?
Age related macular degeneration (AMD) is an eye disease that usually affects
older adults and results in a loss of vision in the center of the visual
field. The macula is the central portion or the retina and is the part of
the eye responsible for the visual field, for detailed and colored vision,
the vision we use to read as well as recognize faces, etc.
There are two different forms - wet and dry. AMD is a major cause of visual
impairment, blurriness and the number one cause of blindness in adults over
the age of 50.
The macula is the central portion of the retina and is responsible for detailed
vision and color vision, the vision we use to read, thread a needle, sign
a check, or recognize faces.
Symptoms usually develop gradually
and can include:
Risks factors of AMD include:
- Increased blurriness of written words.
- Need for brighter light when reading or doing close work.
- More and more difficulties adjusting to low light.
- A gradual increase of haziness in the central vision. (what you see
directly in front of you)
- A blind or blurred spot in the center of your visual field.
- AMD is most common in adults over 50.
- AMD is more common in individuals with
a family history.
- AMD is most common in Caucasian individuals.
- Studies show smokers are more likely to develop
- A poor diet can sometimes increase your risk.
Diseases of heart or blood
- Individuals who have suffered
from a disease of the heart or blood are more likely to develop AMD.
- Elevated cholesterol puts a person at
a higher risk of developing AMD.
AMD causes changes in the retina, the light-sensitive tissue that focuses
images at the back of the eye, and severe AMD leads to loss of central vision.
Cataract is cloudiness or opacity in the eye's lens that interferes with
the clear focus of images on the retina.
What are cataracts?
Cataracts are cloudiness or opacity in the eye's lens that interfere with
clear focus of images on the retina. If they develop in both eyes, one is
usually more severe then the other. As their condition worsens, a person
with cataracts will eventually find it hard to drive, read and even see
facial expressions of someone they are speaking with.
Since cataracts start slowly, most people don't even know they have them
until it has gotten worse once the clouding becomes worse, so does ones
Studies indicate that cataracts are most common in elderly patients over
65 years of age. Both men and women are affected equally. Factor that increase
your risk of cataracts include age, family history, diabetes, smoking, long
terms exposure to bright sunlight, previous eye injury or inflammation and
Symptoms of cataracts include:
Keeping your eyes as healthy as they
- Blurry and cloudy vision
- Some say it's like looking through fog
- Small dots or spots in vision field
- Vision is worse in dimly lit locations
- Vision is worse in bright lights
- Glasses become less effective
- Glasses need to be change more frequently
- Overtime reading becomes impossible
Age related degenerative decline of the eyes affects every individual. However,
important and well respected studies do show that when the body's natural
production of specific optical nutrients slow, supplementation of the synergistic
blend of vital ingredients in Dr. Diamond's Diamond Eye Health will be very
beneficial for replacement of important nutrients.
Other important life changes to aid in optimal eye health include -
- Give up smoking
- Eat a diet rich in fresh fruits and veggies, whole grains, unrefined
carbohydrates, whole grains, good quality fats (avocado, olive oil,
- Get adequate sleep. At least 7 hours of good quality, continuous sleep
- Wear sunglasses that block UV rays in order to protect the eyes from
- Watch your weight as obesity increases your risk of developing type
2 diabetes thus increasing your risk of many degenerative eye diseases
- If suffering from diabetes, be sure to keep it under control and checked
- Studies show regular cardiovascular exercise can be helpful for maintaining
- Make regular trips to your Optometrist or Ophthalmologist for checkups
