Doctor's Advantage Focuses on Treating Preventing Glaucoma

Supplements Now Available on

BOCA RATON, FL--(Marketwired - April 28, 2016) - Doctor's Advantage Products LLC, a company devoted to the development and distribution of doctor-formulated, pharmaceutical-grade nutritional supplements that assist with a variety of eye-related health conditions, announced its products are now available on, a leading online nutrition retailer.

"With Doctor's Advantage products now more readily available with this new partnership with more people can support their optic nerve health and Glaucoma Shield may help slow the progression of glaucoma, the leading cause of irreversible blindness worldwide," said Dr. Jeff Rohr, co-founder and CEO of Doctor's Advantage.

Glaucoma is characterized by a particular pattern of progressive damage to the optic nerve that generally begins with a subtle loss of side vision (peripheral vision). If the disease is not diagnosed and treated, it can progress to loss of central vision and blindness.

Currently more than 6 million individuals are blind in both eyes from this condition. It is estimated that over 3 million people have glaucoma in the United States. However, as many as half of the individuals with glaucoma may not know they have the disease.

Doctor's Advantage developed Glaucoma Shield to potentially increase ocular blood flow and have a beneficial effect on eye pressure. It includes specific ingredients to support healthy optic nerve function like grape seed extract, taurine, bilberry, citrus bioflavonoids, quercetin, vinpocetine, Coeyme Q-10 and ginko biloba.

Ginkgo biloba improves blood circulation, presumably by reducing the tendency of blood to clot and thus helps maintain blood flow to sensitive tissues, such as the brain and optic nerve. Improved blood flow to these organs may ease the course of glaucoma.

Bilberry is used for improving eyesight, including night vision. According to British pilots in the Royal Air Force ate bilberry jam to improve their night vision during World War II. Bilberry is also used for treating eye conditions such as cataracts and disorders of the retina. There is some evidence that bilberry may help retinal disorders.

"Glaucoma is a treatable condition especially if diagnosed early and ingredients in Glaucoma Shield may benefit those diagnosed with glaucoma and who are looking for additional support," Dr. Rohr said.
