Michigan Medical Doctor Creates Vision Vitamin After Diagnosed with
Age Related Macular Degeneration
Try it free today for a limited time!
My name is Dr. Warren Ringold, M.D.
I’m a medical doctor and I have age related macular degeneration, also known as AMD.
If you or a loved one is suffering from age related macular degeneration, then this is the most important message you will ever hear, so stop what you are doing, put away your phone or tablet, turn off the TV, and listen closely.
I remember the day like it was yesterday ...
It was June 4, 2004 when a good friend and colleague of mine said, “My dear friend you have the early stages of macular degeneration.”
My heart nearly skipped a beat.
What did this mean?
Was I on a collision course with permanent blindness?
I’d been practicing medicine since I graduated from the University of Michigan Medical School in 1975.
I’d built a large, successful medical clinic with thousands of patients who relied on me.
I couldn’t help wonder ... what would life be like if I couldn’t practice medicine anymore?
What if I couldn’t recognize the faces of my wife, 6 kids, and 9 grandchildren?
Or worse yet ...
What if I needed assistance to live my life?
I was TERRIFIED.
Age related macular degeneration is the leading cause of blindness for patients my age … men and women over 55.
And as of this day … there is no cure.
However, there is HOPE!
190 Million Cases Estimated Worldwide by 2020
If your days are consumed with feelings of uncertainty, fear that you may lose your eyesight, or worse yet, ultimately lose your independence, then you are not alone.
As someone personally diagnosed with AMD, I’ve had moments of paralyzing fear and overwhelming feelings of uncertainty.
As a physician, I’ve witnessed firsthand the hopelessness, frustration, and sadness facing patients who have lost their vision and independence to this relentless eye disease.
Imagine a life where you couldn’t recognize the faces of your loved ones, read a book, or drive a car.
A life in which you found yourself stranded at home, robbed of your independence and needing assistance with your most routine daily tasks.
Sadly, millions of men and women don't have to imagine this nightmare because they are already living it.
Another 10 to 15 million Americans suffering early stages of macular degeneration fear this scenario every day.
And … worldwide it is estimated that 190 million people may suffer from AMD by the year 2020 as it reaches epidemic proportions. (1)
Whether you or a family member were recently diagnosed, or have been suffering from this affliction for years, I am about to share with you information that can change the way you combat this horrible eye disease from this day forward.
What Exactly Is Macular Degeneration?
So, what exactly is macular degeneration?
More specifically this disease is called Age Related Macular degeneration, or AMD.
It is a disorder resulting in slow and progressive damage to an area of the eye called the macula, which may lead to a blurred or black spot in one’s central vision making it difficult or nearly impossible to read or recognize faces.
There is a macula in each eye and it’s part of the retina. The macula allows for crisp central vision.
The disease can occur in one eye or both; however, if it develops in one eye, there is a higher risk that it will develop in the other eye as well, and this is one reason that it is important to diagnose it early.
One of the most difficult aspects of macular degeneration is that it’s a progressive eye disease, meaning it gets worse over time.
The most common early signs of macular degeneration are drusen, which you may have heard of from your eye doctor. Drusen are yellow deposits under the retina and can be either hard or soft.
It’s important for you to know which ones you have because hard drusen become more common with age and may or may not be indicative of age related macular degeneration.
Soft drusen are the more troubling form and give more cause for concern because they're thought to interfere with removal of waste products from the macula and the delivery of rich oxygen to the macula.
Your eyecare professional can detect drusen during a comprehensive dilated eye exam. Ask them if you have drusen and what kind of drusen you have so you better understand the stages of AMD.
The Three Stages of Age Related Macular Degeneration
AMD has three stages:
Early AMD: People with early AMD have either several small drusen or a few medium-sized drusen. At this stage, there are no symptoms and no vision loss.
Intermediate AMD: People with intermediate AMD have either many medium-sized drusen or one or more large drusen.
Intermediate AMD may cause some vision loss, however, most people will not experience any symptoms.
Late AMD: In addition to drusen, people with late AMD have vision loss from damage to the macula.
There are two types of late AMD:
Dry AMD is a gradual breakdown of the light-sensitive cells in the macula and these changes cause vision loss.
Wet AMD is the growth of abnormal blood vessels underneath the retina. These vessels can leak fluid and blood, which may lead to swelling and damage of the macula. The damage may be rapid and severe. It is possible to have both dry and wet AMD in the same eye, and either condition can appear first.
Understanding the difference is important for the course of treatment your doctor will recommend. Wet AMD is treated with injections into the eye.
The wet form consists of about 10% of AMD cases and usually presents with some distortion of vision and lines might look wavy instead of straight. All of the current medical therapies have been directed at the wet form of AMD, including injections.
The dry form is the most prevalent representing 90% of the AMD cases diagnosed each year and it typically progresses more slowly than the wet.
There are no prescription drugs available for dry AMD.
The National Eye Institute Discovers
Method to Reduce Risk of Vision Loss from AMD!
The National Eye Institute of the US National Institutes of Health completed two of the largest studies on age related eye disease called AREDS and AREDS 2.
They found that supplementing your diet with a daily eye vitamin containing very specific items can slow the progression of dry macular degeneration. National Eye Institute Director, Paul Sieving, M.D., Ph.D., reported supplementation is the only way to decrease risk of vision loss.
NEI director Dr. Paul A. Sieving, reports, "At present, the only established way to decrease the risk of vision loss in people with large drusen is to take daily supplements of vitamins and minerals as used in the NEI-supported Age-Related Eye Disease Study (AREDS)." (1b)
He says that taking the proper supplement is the ONLY way to decrease the risk of vision loss!
This makes it critical to take a powerful anti-oxidant supplement with the vitamins and minerals that can slow age related macular degeneration.
The "Essential 7" with Lutein & Zeaxanthin
The important thing to know about the studies conducted by the National Eye Institute is that AREDS 2 is the latest, most up to date, research study on age related macular degeneration and found that a vitamin supplement containing very specific nutrients can slow the progression of age related macular degeneration and reduce the risk of vision loss.
Lutein and zeaxanthin are two of the essential nutrients studied.
Many patients mistakenly “think” their supplement is complete, however, in reality they are not taking a vitamin that contains all the vital nutrients, for example most patients are not taking FloraGLO lutein, which is the form of lutein studied in AREDS 2 and is a high quality lutein more easily absorbed by the body to protect your eyes.
In addition to lutein and zeaxanthin there are 5 other vital nutrients I believe every eye vitamin must have.
Collectively I refer to these 7 critical and potent nutrients as the “Essential 7.”
I’ll reveal the “Essential 7” momentarily and you’ll want to write these down.
If your eye vitamin is missing a single nutrient from the “Essential 7,” I strongly advise you to switch eye vitamins immediately.
Upon doing a quick search on the Internet I easily found over 35 different eye vitamins containing a variety of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, but MOST were missing key nutrients.
The majority of these supplements contained little to no lutein or zeaxanthin, and even worse, NONE of them contained all of the “Essential 7,” which are the 7 critical ingredients that your eye vitamin must contain to be effective.
5 Buying Criteria For The Best Eye Vitamins
I've been asked by my patients many times if I had a recommended "criteria" they should follow when buying eye vitamins for macular degeneration. I finally created a list of "5 Buying Criteria" that my patients follow when searching for the best eye vitamin.
Below, I share the exact same criteria that I give to my patients.
Buying Criterion #1: Must contain the “Essential 7”:
At the minimum your eye vitamin supplement should contain the 7 items found in the “Essential 7.”
The “Essential 7” includes all the potent items found in the AREDS 2 study to slow the progression of age related macular degeneration and includes vitamin C, vitamin E, zinc, copper, lutein, zeaxanthin, and the final nutrient is … lycopene.
Like lutein and zeaxanthin, lycopene is a carotenoid and protects the macula from sun
It is found in tomatoes and is a powerful antioxidant that not only protects the eyes, but has also been linked to a decrease in cancers and cardiovascular disease. (4)
The reason I’ve included it in the “Essential 7” is because a large study found that individuals with risk of deteriorating central vision, like people with age related macular degeneration, were found to have lower levels of lycopene serum in their blood. (5)
I recommend taking all the items in the “Essential 7” daily ... and ongoing ... to help protect your macula, support crisp central vision, reduce risks of eyesight deterioration or vision loss, and to replenish your eyes with these essential, vital nutrients.†
Buying Criterion #2: Must contain FloraGlo™ lutein: FloraGlo™ lutein is superior in quality and it is the type of lutein used in the AREDS 2 study.
Do NOT take a vitamin supplement with cheap lutein. The label on your bottle MUST say FloraGlo™.
If it doesn’t, then it is a cheaper, inferior product. FloraGlo™ is five times more bio-available than cheap lutein, which means that it is better absorbed by the body and eyes so that it can offer maximum ocular protection.
Buying Criterion #3: Follow the 5 to 1 Rule: Earlier in this report I mentioned the 5 to 1 rule and promised to expand on it.
This rule refers to the ratio of lutein to zeaxanthin that is found to naturally occur in the healthy foods that we eat. The ratio of lutein to zeaxanthin found naturally occurring in foods is 5 to 1. This means that there is 5 times more lutein than zeaxanthin.
Your eye vitamin supplement should contain this same naturally occurring ratio of 5 parts lutein to 1 part zeaxanthin so that it is most effective for protecting the health of your eyes and slowing the progression of age related macular degeneration.
So, what does this look like on the label of a vitamin bottle?
The label on your bottle should state 10mg of lutein and 2mg of zeaxanthin. This follows the 5 to 1 rule.
Buying Criterion #4: 100% Beta-carotene free:
The fourth criterion to follow when buying an eye vitamin is to purchase a supplement that is 100% beta-carotene free.
Beta-carotene is often labeled as vitamin A.
You should completely AVOID this!
You may have heard that beta-carotene is good for your eyes ...
You may have even been told by your physician to take a formulation containing beta-carotene ...
It doesn’t matter …
Do NOT take a supplement containing beta-carotene!
I’ll give you the EXACT reason why you should avoid this ingredient, but first here is the fifth buying criterion you should follow when purchasing an eye vitamin supplement ...
Buying Criterion #5: Made in the USA in a cGMP facility
Find a reputable company manufacturing their product in the United States in a facility adhering to cGMP guidelines.
Many supplements are made overseas and then sold in the U.S.A., coming from countries like China, or 3rd world countries.
These countries have low or lower standards of health and safety regulations.
Even the biggest and most well known companies may be producing their products overseas!
Some independent studies have shown that up to 50% of supplements do NOT contain what is stated on the label or contain additional items NOT listed on the label. (6)
Find a supplement that is produced in the United States adhering to cGMP guidelines.
cGMP is the strictest and highest quality standard that a supplement manufacturer can follow so that you can feel confident that your supplement contains what is stated on its label without additional items or contaminants.
The vitamin you buy in the store may be produced in a facility that falls well below the cGMP standards … especially if it isn’t produced in the USA.
My Fight with My Age Related Macular Degeneration
I remember how I felt when I was diagnosed with age related macular degeneration in 2004 and the overwhelming feelings I had when researching the best eye vitamin to help me.
There were so many products available and today the store shelves and Internet are flooded with even more!
I began researching these products more than a decade ago when I was first diagnosed with AMD, but quickly discovered that I was not happy with my options.
As a matter of fact, I wanted something that I believed to be more powerful and more complete for my needs.
I did NOT want to lose my vision and I was prepared to fight.
It was my dissatisfaction that caused me to search for alternative solutions to my age related macular degeneration, which eventually led me to the creation of my own eye vitamin supplement.
Initially, I created this product just for myself because I wanted something that I could trust.
I then began recommending it to my patients, and when it was finally made available to the public in 2006 it sold internationally.
Since then thousands of men and women from 27 countries have purchased millions and millions of my eye vitamin capsules and many of them continue using it to this very day.
Preserve Mac Forte Advanced
The name of my product is Preserve Mac Forte Advanced … and as a guest watching this special presentation … you’re about to learn how to try it today 100% risk free!

Preserve Mac Forte Advanced
Contains The "Essential 7"
Preserve Mac Forte Advanced contains the “Essential 7.”
Like an engine powers a racecar, the “Essential 7” powers Preserve Mac Forte Advanced.
Multiple studies have suggested that these antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals have positive effects on the overall health of your eyes, which may lead to sharpened visual acuity, crisper images, and even slowing age related macular degeneration.
As critical as these nutrients are for supporting healthy central vision and slowing age related macular degeneration, this is just the foundation of Preserve Mac Forte Advanced.
In fact, when you take Preserve Mac Forte Advanced you'll not only support the health of your eyes, but with a total of 27 high quality ingredients you'll also support full body health.†
This saves money each month because Preserve Mac Forte Advanced acts as both your eye vitamin and your general multivitamin, eliminating the need to purchase two separate supplements.
These include items like Bilberry, which according to legend is said to be what improved the night vision of British Royal Air Force pilots in World War II by eating bilberry jam on their toast.
It also contains Rutin and Hesperidin that have antioxidant properties, anti-inflammatory properties, increase circulation, and strengthen capillary walls.

Preserve Mac Forte Advanced is made with FloraGlo lutein. This is the high quality lutein that is 5 times more bioavailable than cheap lutein, which means that it is readily absorbed by your body so it protects the health of your eyes.
Preserve Mac Forte Advanced follows the 5 to 1 Rule: It contains 10mg of lutein and 2mg of zeaxanthin. This is the recommended dosage that follows the 5 to 1 ratio naturally occurring in foods we find in nature.
Preserve Mac Forte Advanced is made in the USA in a cGMP facility -- Preserve Mac Forte Advanced is produced in the United States of America in an FDA inspected facility with strict guidelines adhering to Current Good Manufacturing Practices, or cGMP.

The three steps involve intense scrutiny and testing before, during, and after the manufacturing process.
If it fails to meet the strict quality requirements in any step, then the product is refused and the production process starts over again.
Preserve Mac Forte Advanced is Beta-carotene free.
High doses of beta-carotene have been linked to an increased risk of lung cancer in smokers and former smokers.
This is why I highly recommend that you do NOT take a supplement containing beta-carotene … even if you are a non-smoker.
Preserve Mac Forte Advanced is 100% beta-carotene free so that it is a safer formulation than preparations using this risky ingredient.
Listen to these testimonials from real customers:
Martha Bushnell, Boulder, Colorado

Dennis Reeder, Age 75, Morrow, Georgia
"I heard about this product from a friend. I decided to try it because my friend had good results. I starting using Preserve Mac Forte Advanced in November of 2008 and what I like most is that it seems to be helping my condition. I would tell people who are thinking about trying Preserve Mac Forte Advanced that originally I was somewhat skeptical, but would recommend to try it for 6 to 8 months and see if it helps you."*
Mrs. R. Scott Patton, Jasper, Tennessee
"I found the product on the Internet. I tried Preserve Mac Forte Advanced because of reliability of the source and have been using it about 10 months. The thing I like most is the ease of taking. I have tried other products, but this has more ingredients to help my eyes. I have already had a friend change to this product. Our doctor also suggested my husband take one pill per day as a precaution."*
*Disclaimer: While these testimonials are remarkable, it should be noted that their results are extraordinary and not typical. Most people will not experience improvements in their vision, and lost vision due to age related macular degeneration cannot be restored. Our best hope is to slow the progression and reduce our risk of vision loss.
“I strongly endorse Preserve Mac Forte Advanced, and I recommend that patients use this daily.”Dr. Scott Feiler, M.D. Ophthalmologist and Cornea Specialist

Question: How many capsules are in a bottle of Preserve Mac Forte Advanced?
Answer: 120 capsules are in a bottle.
Question: How big are the capsules?
Answer: The capsules are roughly the size of a Tylenol capsule
Question: Can I see a list of all 27 ingredients?
Answer: Yes, just click here to see an image of the label.
Question: What is AREDS and AREDS 2?
Answer: There have been two massive studies completed by the National Eye Institute. The original study is called AREDS, which stands for Age Related Eye Disease Study. The second study is called AREDS 2. The important thing to know is that AREDS 2 is the latest and most up to date study on age related macular degeneration. These studies found that supplementing your diet with specific antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals can slow the progression of age related macular degeneration. Preserve Mac Forte Advanced is formulated based on aspects of the most up to date, AREDS 2, study.
Question: How does this compare to an AREDS 2 formula from other companies?
Answer: The typical AREDS 2 formula contains only 6 items, and some contain less. Preserve Mac Forte Advanced contains all 6 items studied in AREDS 2, plus it contains an extra carotenoid called lycopene. In addition, it contains 20 more items for a total of 27 ingredients! It is a powerful, comprehensive ocular supplement that promotes healthy eyes and supports full body health.
Question: Does Preserve Mac Forte contain lutein and zeaxanthin?
Answer: Yes, Preserve Mac Forte contains 10mg of lutein and 2mg of zeaxanthin. This is the natural 5 to 1 ratio found in the eye and the ratio naturally occuring in the healthy foods that we eat. It is also the ration studied in AREDS 2 and is the recommended ratio by the National Eye Institute.
Question: Does this product contain FloraGLO lutein?
Answer: Yes, Preserve Mac Forte Adanced contains FloraGLO lutein which is what was used in the massive, groundbreaking AREDS 2 study. FloraGLO lutein is 5 times more bioavailable than cheap lutein. This means it is more readily absorbed by your body so that it gets into your system and protects your eyes better. If the label does not say FloraGLO on it, then you are taking a cheap, inferior product.
Question: I’ve read on the Internet that I should take 20mg or more of lutein each day. Is this true?
Answer: No. This is simply untrue. There are plenty of websites trying to sell the idea that you should buy their product because it has 15mg, 20mg, or more of lutein! The proper dosage is 10mg per day. The National Eye Institute has completed the largest study on age related eye disease called AREDS 2 and they recommend 10mg. Taking more than this recommended amount may be toxic or harmful to your health.
Question: Can I take only 1 capsule per day?
Answer: There are 27 high quality ingredients that make up the Preserve Mac Forte Advanced formulation. It is impossible to get all of these powerful antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals into only one capsule. Many customers use this product as BOTH their eye vitamin and their general health vitamin, which allows them to eliminate purchasing two separate products. It is recommended that you take 4 to 6 per day.
Question: How many capsules do I take?
Answer: We have found that most customers take 2 capsules in the morning with breakfast and 2 capsules in the evening with dinner. You can take up to 6 per day.
Question: Does it work?
Answer: First, lets be clear about something — there is no cure for age related macular degeneration. There is no way to restore lost vision from age related macular degeneration. The best hope that we have is to SLOW the progression of age related macular degeneration by taking a daily supplement containing powerful antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals. We have customers all over the world. Some of our customers have been using this product since 2006. We have customers that report to us through our phone agents, by email, and letter how well they are doing. Our customers are very satisfied.
Question: Does Preserve Mac Forte contain beta-carotene?
Answer: No, Preserve Mac Forte does not contain beta-carotene. The National Eye Institute reported the results from their AREDS 2 study in May of 2013 and they found that when replacing the beta-carotene from the original AREDS formula with 10 mg of lutein and 2 mg of zeaxanthin that it slows age related macular degeneration even more and reduces risk of vision loss. Research studies have suggested a link between high doses of beta-carotene and increased cases of lung cancer in people who smoke. Replacing beta-carotene with lutein and zeaxanthin makes this formula safe for smokers and increases the effectiveness of the vitamin supplement in slowing AMD.
Question: What are free radicals?
Answer: Research has shown that the activity within the cells of the body produces a type of oxygen that is quite reactive and unstable. This oxygen is called a free radical. This unstable oxygen is essential for the body to be able to fight outside infections or to reduce areas of inflammation within the body. Unfortunately these free radicals also can cause harm to some other chemicals of the body like proteins, lipids, and even all-important DNA. Because there is a very high level of lipids in the area of the eye called the retina, it is particularly sensitive to the damaging effects of free radicals. These free radicals cause oxidation and that leads to damage. That is why the protective supplements are called ANTI OXIDANTS. Their mission is to reduce the level of excess free radicals. This in turn leads to a slowing of the macular damage.

Answer: Experts feel that lutein acts like a natural pair of sunglasses. It concentrates in the macula and protects this sensitive area from the ultraviolet rays of the sun. Lutein levels in the macula have been shown to increase when lutein is increased in the diet with the right foods or with proper supplementation.
Question: How does lutein protect the macula?
Answer: Lutein increases the pigment in the macula, and the increased pigment protects against the oxidative forces of the sun. These forces damage the retina and the macula over time.
Question: Do all of these essential supplements act in the same way?
Answer: The items in Preserve Mac Forte Advanced all work by interfering with chemicals and forces (oxidation) that harm the macula.
Question: Does smoking accelerate AMD?
Answer: Smoking has been linked to an increased risk for AMD. This is especially true for people who have a certain genetic history in their family.
Question: Are there any treatments for dry AMD?
Answer: There are some treatments being tested; however, currently the only known way to slow the process is with proper vitamin and mineral supplementation.
Question: Do all patients with AMD go blind?
Answer: No, but any person who has AMD can go blind if they live long enough and do not take action to slow the natural progression of the illness.
Question: Can’t I just get enough anti oxidants in my diet so that I do not need supplements?
Answer: There are doctors and nutritionists who feel that you can get everything that you need from your diet. There are others who feel that supplements are essential. My personal belief is that the supplements certainly cannot hurt. Almost all of the best sources are found in foods that usually are cooked. Much of the nutritional value can be lost with cooking, so supplements could be even more important than the nutritional sources because they are not altered by cooking.
Question: What are lutein and zeaxanthin?
Answer:These are two substances that you are likely to hear the most about if you have AMD. These are two chemicals from a group of substances called carotenoids. Carotenes are derived from tuberous plants like carrots, yams, sweet potatoes, and winter squash. There is also a group called xanthophylls and these are derived from plant leaves. The most important xanthophyll for AMD is lutein. Lutein is found in spinach, kale, collard and mustard greens, and egg yolks. Plants make other types of xanthophylls; however, lutein is the only one that accumulates in the eye. Zeaxanthin is much like lutein and together they help produce a richer and more vibrant pigment in the retina. This helps protect the macula from further degeneration.
Question: I have read about something called drusen. What exactly is drusen?
Answer:Drusen is the name of the damaged spots in the macula. A drusen is a yellowish spot that forms indicating that there is an area of damage. Sunlight is particularly harmful to the retina and can cause drusen. Both lutein and zeaxanthin help filter out the most harmful ultraviolet blue spectrum of sunlight. This helps reduce additional damage.
Question: You said that lutein helps make pigment. What exactly does that mean?
Answer: There is a very rich pigment that covers the back of the eye. This pigment is protective. Lutein is important because it determines the thickness of the yellow macular pigment layer. Yellow lutein is located in a layer covering the all important rods and cones of the retina. Thus this layer protects these highly sensitive areas from the damage of unfiltered sunlight. The thicker and richer this layer becomes, the more protection that is offered against the oxidative damage of sunlight.
Question: What else can I do besides wear good sunglasses and take the proper nutritional supplements?
Answer: Most experts recommend a number of things to slow the progression of AMD. You should stop smoking immediately if you are a smoker. You should be on vitamin and mineral supplementation. You should see an ophthalmologist every year and more frequently if you detect a change in your vision. You should drink less alcohol. Lastly you need a good pair of sunglasses that have UV protection. Many sunglasses do not have UV protection. Without this protection, sunglasses offer no help to filter out the damaging rays that speed the progression of AMD.
Question: Should everyone take nutritional supplements to protect against AMD?
Answer: If you are over 50 you should begin by seeing an eye doctor. An ophthalmologist is the best choice for your evaluation. The doctor will look into the back of your eye to see if there is evidence of drusen. Even if there are no drusen, many eye doctors recommend starting a program involving dietary supplements. If there is a family history of AMD, you should begin supplements. In addition you should begin supplements even before the age of 50 if you have a diet that is lacking in the items listed previously.
“I found it [Preserve Mac Forte Advanced] on the Internet and started reading about it and decided I need to try this. I had been diagnosed 5 years ago with macular degeneration and I had been to a specialist for cataracts. I looked on the Internet and found this and thought that this sounds like something that would really help me.
I’ve been using it about 5 months. I want to tell you that in between times I had gone to another specialist. Six weeks after I started taking Preserve Mac Forte my eyesight had changed tremendously.
When I went to the first doctor in May he told me my eyesight was 20/70 and 20/60. When I went to the next doctor 6 weeks later after taking Preserve Mac Forte my eyesight had gone back to 20/40 and 20/30. I was pleased. That had been the prescription in my glasses the last two years so I continued taking Preserve Mac Forte. I had been taking another vitamin but it wasn’t doing what this did.
I believe the mixture of vitamins and minerals is what is helping my eyes. I told two of my doctors already that I was taking this and they both wanted to know where they could get it. They thought about prescribing this to other patients or at least telling them about it.” *

“I was having quite a bit of problems at night driving at the time and I went immediately on the Preserve Mac Forte and right after I started on it, I had an improvement in vision and have been on it ever since. So that would be approximately 4 years and it has improved my vision considerably.
I had a break in the use of it for about a month and I started having a problem with one eye. It was like there was a light in the left eye… like a center vision problem… just a small central vision problem there, but I got right back on it and everything straightened right back up.
There is quite a bit of difference because I was having to use my glasses and there was blurriness in my vision at that time, but now I can sit and watch television with no vision problem at all without my glasses.
All I know is that within a month’s time I realized dramatic improvement in my vision and it has done nothing but help me from the moment I started taking it, and all I can say to anyone is to try it. I would like to tell you that I appreciate how you have serviced this account. You are excellent on servicing it.” *
-Iris Clough, Douglas, Georgia
“My mother had macular degeneration and was blind. It started in her 70′s. The doctor told her it was hereditary. One day I decided to get on the computer and look up macular degeneration and I happened to come across Preserve Mac Forte. I thought, if I could start taking this then possibly I would not have the problem. So I decided to start taking it. I took 2 in the morning and 2 in the evening. This was 3 years ago. After 6 months I noticed that my glasses were really bothering me. So I went to my eye doctor and he told me my eyes were better. My glasses went down one step. I continued taking it and after a year I regressed back 2 pairs of glasses. I went back to my doctor and he said he could not believe what had happened. I would like for other people to know that Preserve Mac Forte works. If anyone is skeptical about trying Preserve Mac Forte I would say don’t hesitate and take it immediately.” *

“I am pleased to tell you that my macular degeneration has not progressed since I have taken your capsules [Preserve Mac Forte Advanced] for four years.” *
-Roswitha Robertson, Havelock North, New Zealand, Age: 84
“I found the product on the Internet. I tried Preserve Mac Forte because of reliability of the source and have been using it about 10 months. The thing I like most is the ease of taking. I have tried other products, but this has more ingredients to help my eyes. I have already had a friend change to this product. Our doctor also suggested my husband take one pill per day as a precaution. I have macular degeneration and so far this [product] has helped to stabilize the progression.” *
-Mrs. R. Scott Patton, Jasper, TN, Age: 82
“I heard about this product from a friend. I decided to try it because my friend had good results. I starting using Preserve Mac Forte in November of 2008 and what I like most is that it seems to be helping my condition. The improvement that I have experienced is the macular degeneration has not progressed since first found. I would tell people who are thinking about trying Preserve Mac Forte that originally I was somewhat skeptical, but would recommend to try it for 6 to 8 months and see if it helps you.” *
-Dennis Reeder, Morrow, Georgia, Age: 75
“The thing that first attracted me is the fact that the doctor who has made the vitamins to help me has [AMD], so I think someone is very understanding of something if they have it themselves. I know I have gotten my medicine when I was supposed to the whole time and I’ve been thankful about taking it. Everybody has been really, really nice to me. I couldn’t say anything bad about this company at all. It’s not that expensive because the doctor that I talked to in Abington, VA about it said that you need to continue taking that because sometimes you get really expensive stuff and what you have is not that expensive so it is something that is affordable.” *
