VAUGHAN, Ontario — Bausch + Lomb Corp. announced the U.S. introduction of PreserVision AREDS 2 Formula mini soft gels with OCUSorb. This product is the only AREDS 2 eye vitamin with the OCUSorb formulation. Offering a proprietary composition of lutein and zeaxanthin, OCUSorb has been clinically shown to provide superior absorption of these nutrients into the body as compared to the original PreserVision AREDS 2 mini soft gel formula.

“For my patients with moderate to advanced Age-related Macular Degeneration (AMD), a leading cause of vision loss in Americans ages 50 and older, I typically recommend a plan that includes a healthy diet, exercise and PreserVision AREDS 2 Formula eye vitamins to help reduce the risk of disease progression,” said  Dr. Rishi Singh, staff physician and president, Cleveland Clinic Martin Hospitals, Stuart, Fla. “Now with the OCUSorb formula, lutein and zeaxanthin are better absorbed in the body, helping to increase the amount of nutrients that can circulate to patient’s eyes. I am pleased to recommend this new enhanced formula to my patients.” 

 PreserVision AREDS 2 Formula eye vitamins, including the new OCUSorb formula, contain the exact nutrient formula recommended by the National Eye Institute (NEI). This exact formula includes certain amounts of lutein and zeaxanthin, which are two important antioxidants that have been clinically shown through decades of research to help reduce the risk of AMD progression. In 2022, the NEI’s AREDS2 10-Year Follow-on Study further confirmed the benefits of lutein and zeaxanthin in the AREDS 2 formula. 

 “We’re pleased to offer eye care professionals and their patients this enhanced offering – the proven AREDS 2 formula eye vitamin with better absorbing nutrients from the patented OCUSorb technology,” said Joe Gordon, president, Global Consumer, Surgical and Vision Care, Bausch + Lomb. “We remain committed to supporting and providing the nearly 16 million Americans affected by AMD with products that address their eye health needs.” 

 PreserVision AREDS 2 Formula mini soft gels with OCUSorb are now available at most major retailers nationwide in the vitamin aisle or online and will replace the current PreserVision AREDS 2 Formula mini gel formula. For more information on PreserVision eye vitamins, visit
