Lutein and Zeaxanthin are powerful antioxidants that our bodies cannot produce on their own. These vital nutrients help filter harmful blue light that can damage the eye.¹
Many people’s diets do not include food rich in Lutein, Zeaxanthin and Omega-3s—vital nutrients that help protect your eye health.²
You don’t need to be over 50 to benefit from the nutrients in Ocuvite® Adult 50+. As you age, your eyes may lose vital nutrients. Ocuvite® Adult 50+ can help protect your macular health by replenishing the powerful antioxidants your body cannot produce on its own.
Multivitamins are useful for overall health, but most contain little to no Lutein, Zeaxanthin, and Omega-3s.³ If you have any questions talk to your doctor.
Ocuvite® Adult 50+ focuses on one single thing: the health of your eyes. Just as your bones need calcium to stay healthy and strong, your eyes have their own set of nutritional needs.

Can I take Ocuvite® Adult 50+ with my multivitamin?
Yes. If you have any questions, talk to your doctor.
Will Ocuvite® Adult 50+ prevent eye diseases?
