Vision Essence Zinc Free  eye vitamin and ArcticDx MaculaRisk AMD genetic test featured on CTV News

Maximize Your Risk Reduction

Use Zinc Free eye vitamin supplements if you've not performed the VitaRisk genetic test following diagnosis of macular degeneration (AMD). Without this simple cheek swab, about 1 in 6 taking AREDS supplements will accelerate their progression to advanced AMD. Only after it's determined zinc may be beneficial should one consider an AREDS type supplement with 25mg zinc. The higher 80mg zinc dose found in widely available brands has proven toxic- avoid these.
