In his practice, Dr. Kellis encountered many patients with Acute Macular Degeneration (AMD). After researching available products on the market, he felt none met the total needs of the AMD patient. Thus, he developed his own. Nature’s Eye Vitamins® is made from natural ingredients, without the use of any animal byproducts or preservatives. The product contains ingredients based on the latest scientific research. In addition, the capsule form of delivery provides greater absorption than a tablet form. The capsule can even be opened and mixed into water or juice for individuals who prefer this method of taking medications. Nature’s Eye Vitamins® provide individuals with AMD, a quality product with the latest research findings.
