I have been taking Ocuvite for over a week now and have experienced nausea and upset stomach. One day I decided not to take the Ocuvite for a couple of days and had no nausea or upset stomach. This morning I took one pill after breakfast and the nausea reappeared. I believe I will ask my eye doctor to recommend something else, or not take anything at all.

I used Lifeplan Lutein & it certainly did help my eyes (as I noticed when I stopped taking it!), but unfortunately, as someone else has mentioned, it gave me asthma. It took me a while to realise it was the lutein causing it, but I have tested a few times & it definitely was. Lutein is extracted from marigold flowers, so I don't know if that has anything to do with it.

Doctor prescribed PreserVision to hopefully slow progression of disease in my husband's eyes. Dr. will retest in 6 months to see what effect, if any, it makes. Side effect: he has a dermatology issue that has been treated, unsuccessfully, by 4 dermatologists over the past 12 years. About 3 weeks after starting the lutein dosage, we noticed the swelling and inflamation in his fingers cleare ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I was hoping for faster releif from AMD. I still have a flashing star in my left eye from detached retina surgery(not happy about this) and I am now starting to get cobwebs on my right or good eye. At times I am very sensative to bright sun even with eye protection meaning I can see but still have to squint slightely.
