News: CVS faces lawsuit for claim about a store-brand eye product

April 10, 2016

For those who have intermediate and advanced AMD, doctors recommend the nutritional supplement that came through 2 NIH research studies: AREDS & AREDS2.  If you haven’t already done so, please read our post What about those eye vitamins?

The only product that has all the nutrients from the AREDS2 study is made by Bausch + Lomb PreserVision. CVS put their store brand supplement next to this one and labeled it “comparable to ongoing study formula in AREDS2.” A 91-year-old woman was diagnosed with AMD and the doctor prescribed the PreserVision product but because of the label, she switched to the CVS brand because it was half the price.

It is NOT comparable.  To read the whole story, click here.
