The Essential Eye Nutrients of Ocuvite

Your body uses and loses key nutrients that help nourish the filter (macula) that protects your eyes from stressors like screens, sunlight and smartphones. As you age, those protective nutrients deplete even more, so replenishing them has never been more important. Ocuvite, from the eye health experts at Bausch + Lomb, was designed to help you fight against life’s daily stressors.

Macular Protection

Lutein & Zeaxanthin for

Macular Protection

These two nutrients are the only carotenoids, a type of antioxidant, found in the eye, and are at their highest concentration in the macula. Lutein and Zeaxanthin help strengthen the macula, which is responsible for shielding and filtering high-energy blue light to help protect your eyes.

Omega-3s to

Promote Eye Health

Omega-3s are a family of fatty acids that help protect eye health. An important structural component of the retina, these fatty acids are required for normal function.

Antioxidant Protection

Vitamins C & E for

Antioxidant Protection

Vitamins C and E are the primary antioxidants in the cellular membranes of your eyes, helping defend against stress from free radicals. Free radicals are a normal byproduct of aging and exposure to daily stressors. In fact, exposure to light makes your eyes particularly susceptible to this oxidative stress.

Since your eyes require more antioxidants for protection than most other organs, getting the right amount of Vitamins C and E is critically important for optimal eye health.

Immune Function

Zinc for

Immune Function

Found in a high concentration in the retina, Zinc helps regulate immune function in your eyes. And by helping your body absorb Vitamins C and E and other antioxidants that fight damage, Zinc is essential to protect the health of your retina and the cell membranes and protein structure of your lens.


Simply taking a multivitamin will not do enough to care for your eyes. Eye vitamins will give you more of the essential nutrients needed for eye health.
