Columbus, OH-A new supplement (Diabetic Vision Formula, EyeScience Labs) is designed to help protect against potential vision problems associated with diabetic retinopathy.

“The [product] was formulated to help target the oxidative stress that can negatively [affect] the blood vessel system in the eyes for people [who] live with diabetes,” said Jeff Northup, president and chief executive officer of EyeScience Labs. He added that the product is the result of extensive research and clinical studies.

Among the formulation’s ingredients are vitamin B6, omega-3 fatty acids, niacin, lutein, alpha lipoic acid, cinnamon bark, bilberry, and grape seed extract.

“Together, these powerful carotenoid antioxidants and other essential nutritional ingredients can help support healthy ocular blood vessels,” Northrup said.

The company’s products are sold directly through participating eye-care professionals and nationwide at any CVS Pharmacy. For more information, contact EyeScience at 877/393-8482 or visit www.EyeScience.com.
