I'm an assistant manager at a huge chain drug store.
There are a lot if eye vitamins on the market right now, ranging from
Name brands like I-Vite and Ocuvite, to store brand generic comparisons.
If you already take a multi vitamin plus minerals, use caution and label read carefully so as not to overdo on some minerals.
Also, if you take prescription meds, check with your doc or pharmacist first for their recommendations.
What you are doing, eliduc, by adding just the straight lutein in addition to the others, is a good thing.
Too often, people buy and take a ton of supplements without realizing that some of these supplements can have adverse effects (particularly herbals), when combined with prescription meds, or even aspirin.
OK, I will get off my soapbox now.
