Eye Health Reimagined with just ONE pill a day!
It’s no secret that we’re spending an excessive amount of time in front of our screens. Digital overload is real and getting worse. According to a recent report, in 2020 Americans spent an average of seven hours and 50 minutes per day consuming digital media. More than three hours of that time was on smartphones. The hard truth is that harmful blue light is just about everywhere these days. The result is an influx of eye problems like dry, itchy and fatigued eyes, among other concerns.
Vision Essentials® ULTRA addresses virtually all of these issues with just ONE vegetarian capsule a day. This exceptional formula provides substantial and broad support for vision and eye health with comprehensive, clinically validated macular and retinal support, a big solution for the ever-present negative effects of blue light exposure, plus significant support for dry eyes, ocular pressure, and cognitive health. The end result is one powerful formula that addresses critical eye health needs without needing to mix and match additional eye health ingredients.
Modern life is taking a toll on our eyes…support them and you’ll be amazed to see what ELSE improves!
What’s more, Vision Essentials ULTRA tackles the often accompanying burdens of stress, occasional achy head, sore neck, sleep and mood issues. The thought of complete and thorough eye care may have seemed impossibly far off not too long ago. No longer. The future of eye health is here right now with a single daily pill that soothes and shields your eyes through all of today’s modern eye aggravations. Altogether you will enjoy all the powerful and unique benefits of Vision Essentials ULTRA for:
- Increased support for macular and retinal health
- Enhanced macular pigment optical density (MPOD)
- Enhanced visual function in bright light conditions
- Visual recovery after bright light exposure
- Relief from eye fatigue and eye dryness
- A shield against the harmful effects of excessive screen time, like eye fatigue, neck/shoulder stiffness, and achy head
- Healthy eye response to visual stimuli including all things beautiful in your environment
- Healthy intraocular pressure
- Cognitive function and better overall mood
Intensely researched ingredients, in their most ideally concentrated forms
Vision Essentials ULTRA is leagues ahead of other eye health supplements with the inclusion of three clinically validated superstars: Lutemax® 2020 Lutein, Bilberon® Bilberry Extract, and Saffron Extract. The result is a potent formula—packed into a single pill—that combines the best-of-the-best ingredients providing clinically validated macular and retinal health support, plus relief from common complaints like fatigued eyes, stress, occasional achy head, sore neck, and sleep and mood issues that we all face these days as a result of the burdens we are placing on our eyes from all those hours we spend staring at digital screens.
LUTEMAX® 2020 LUTEIN: Most vision supplements give you only a paltry amount of lutein. But Vision Essentials ULTRA does more, very literally flooding your macular shield with award-winning, clinically validated Lutemax 2020 lutein, which includes 40 mg lutein, 8 mg zeaxanthin, and 2 mg meso-zeaxanthin. This advanced carotenoid blend mimics the exact ratio of lutein and other eye-protective compounds found in nature.
Lutein is the most popular eye nutrient for good reason. It is a naturally occurring carotenoid your eyes use to help shield against blue light absorption. And protecting and nourishing your eyes from blue light means supercharging your macular pigment optical density or MPOD—your built-in macular shield. A healthy MPOD is like your body’s own sunglasses inside your eyes, and is one of the best indicators of macular health. Studies have shown lutein increases MPOD significantly.
Lutein supports the health of your macula and retina in particular, which is critical to your vision. The macula—a part of the retina—is the area that is most sensitive to blue light. It's where images are captured and then relayed to the brain. The macula is what allows for sharp clear vision and the ability to perceive colors. It is what gives us the sharp, crisp details that help us to read, watch TV, drive a car, or distinguish faces. Highlights of Lutemax 2020 lutein benefits include:
- Reduce digital eye fatigue and eyestrain
- Support normal macular pigment optical density (MPOD)
- Help your eyes recover after bright light exposure
- Help your eyes adapt to low-light conditions
EXCLUSIVE! BILBERON® BILBERRY EXTRACT: Only Vision Essentials ULTRA contains Bilberon, made with 100% genuine, high-quality bilberries native to Scandinavia that have been guaranteed by “Certificates of Origin.” They have a minimum 36% anthocyanins, which is critically important because you want to make sure you are getting bilberry from a reputable source. And it’s the same antioxidant extract used in human clinical trials. In one study, Bilberon supplementation over six weeks in healthy adults exposed to computer screens, gaming, smartphones, or other digital devices, used for more than 4 hours per day, led to significant improvements1 including:
- Reduced eye fatigue
- Reduced neck and shoulder stiffness
- Decreased eye dryness
- Decreased eye redness and itching
- Increased eye moisture
- Improved accommodation (ability to alternately focus from near to far objects)
CLEAR'SAFF™ SAFFRON EXTRACT: Clinical studies on our saffron extract ingredient provide support for healthy visual acuity and healthy eye response to visual stimuli; in other words, you get support for normal, healthy eye function when looking at all the beautiful things in life. Saffron also has benefits for healthy intraocular pressure, promoting a better mood, regulating stress levels, and reducing occasional anxiousness. Additionally, preliminary research suggests that active ingredients in saffron may be involved in supporting sleep and memory function.
Saffron supplementation over a 12–16 month treatment period induced significant stable improvements in retinal function leading to the following experiential benefits reported by participants in the study.
- Enhanced visual acuity (sharpness)
- Improved vision at low light
- While not measured, participants also reported better contrast and color perception, as well as better reading ability
SETRIA® GLUTATHIONE: Many researchers believe this premier antioxidant essentially controls free radicals that contribute to the aging process. Setria Glutathione supplies a potent store of antioxidants that bind to free radicals, keeping them from wreaking havoc throughout your body.
Vision Essentials ULTRA also includes vitamins A and C, plus zinc and copper, nutrients that are part of the AREDS study, and are critical for vision and macular health.
Advanced eye supplement ideal for any age
Conventional wisdom says that only older adults need to be concerned about eye health. The facts present a different picture: Doctors are seeing younger and younger people starting to have vision issues that used to show up only in seniors. What’s more, you can hardly go anywhere or do anything these days without the sources of blue light making their way into your field of vision. This not only negatively affects the eyes in many ways, but the body, with sore neck and shoulders, achy head, stress, poor sleep, and more. That means Vision Essentials ULTRA is for everybody, no matter what your age.
Vision Essentials ULTRA is Whitaker Nutrition’s masterwork in the field of eye and vision solutions. It is the culmination of intensive investigation into the best-of-the-best botanicals at researched levels, in their most ideally concentrated forms. We also considered feedback from folks who wanted fewer pills and more benefits from their eye supplement. The result is a groundbreaking eye health solution with everything you need in just one easy-to-take pill a day.

A Closer Look at Bilberon® Bilberry Extract
Bilberon is a clinically validated bilberry extract that you won’t find in any other eye supplement. It reduces eye fatigue and dry eyes that are common symptoms associated with the excessive use of digital devices. It was observed in a clinical study to improve eye moisture, eye fatigue and eye accommodation (the ability to change focus from near to far objects). Placebo-controlled trials also reported improvements in accommodative function after bilberry supplementation, with no significant change amongst the placebo-group subjects. Bilberon is made by a vertically integrated Japanese phytochemical company using 100% genuine, high-quality bilberries and has a minimum 36% anthocyanins.
