Pharmacological properties

A combined preparation containing vitamins, minerals and plant carotenoids.

Replenishes the deficiency of vitamins and minerals. It has an antioxidant effect. The effect of the drug is due to the effects of the substances that make up its composition.

Lutein and zeaxanthin are the only carotenoids contained directly in the retina (in the macula lutea). The action of these substances is due to their high antioxidant activity and ability to filter the harmful part of the light spectrum. Lutein and zeaxanthin have an antioxidant, screening and absorbing effect, reduce the risk of age-related disorders.

Betakarotin plays an important role in the construction of the visual pigment rhodopsin, which ensures the adaptation of the eye to poor lighting, and also has an antioxidant effect.

The action of vitamin C - a water-soluble antioxidant - in the drug is combined with the action of vitamin E, which protects cells and tissues from the damaging effects of excess free radicals and lipid peroxidation.

Copper and zinc function as components of numerous metal enzymes, catalyzing their action and preventing the formation of free radicals.

Indications

Replenishment of necessary vitamins and minerals for eye diseases (age-related retinal degeneration, cataracts, retinopathy, optic nerve diseases);

  • prevention of age-related visual impairment and eye diseases in risk groups (over 55 years old; in patients with diabetes mellitus; in the presence of a hereditary predisposition to cataracts or retinal degeneration; in smokers; people with bright eyes);
  • prevention of eye diseases with increased loads on them (working with a computer, under the influence of UV rays, radiation from television screens); with violations of night adaptation of vision; during the recovery period after ophthalmic surgery.

Application

Applied orally during or after meals. in adults and children over the age of 12 years, apply 1 tablet 1 time per day for 2-3 months. The maximum daily dose is 1 tablet. the duration of the course of treatment is determined individually. if necessary, in the absence of a lasting effect, repeat courses are prescribed after consultation with a doctor.
