Ocufolin® is a vitamin product for the eyes which has been used successfully in the US for several years. In addition to the ingredients examined in the ARED studies, Ocufolin® is the only eye vitamin which contains L-methylfolate, the active, organically available form of folic acid.This novel component supplies active folate to the retina. When combined with the other ingredients, this complements a healthy diet and supports an adequate supply of micronutrients, particularly in the eye. There are two forms of Ocufolin on the Swiss market:

 

 

Ocufolin® forte, listed as a food for special medical purposes (balanced diet), was developed for older people with degenerative eye conditions and correspondingly weakened microcirculation. Ocufolin® forte ensures the provision of a targeted supply of those nutrients not being absorbed sufficiently by people with eye disorders such as AMD (age-related macular degeneration) and DR (diabetic retinopathy). This food for special medical purposes helps maintain a suppy of nutrients and covers any heightened need for micronutrients which has arisen due to illness.
