I have difficulity going from bright sunlight into a darken room. It takes awhile for my eyes to adjust to the darkness. If I'm using Ginkgold Eyes AND wearing my sunglasses outdoors, when I enter a restaurant with low light, I am able to see 10 times better after removing my sunglasses indoor.
The difference from using another comprehensive eye supplement and Ginkgold Eyes is absolutely unbelievable. In 2009, I decided to try a formula that was formulated by an "alternative" MD. After being off Ginkgold Eyes for a few months, I noticed that it took a long time for my eyes to adjust from bright sun to indoor light. I immediately went back to Ginkgold Eyes. Now I can see better when going indoors from bright sunlight.
Subsequently, my wife started using Ginkgold Eyes because she can see better at night while driving. The glare of oncoming headlights seems to be reduced.

expensive formula for so much less
"the more I've researched herbs/vitamins & the more I've added to my regimen, the more I've seen I need to combine into synergistic mixes or cocktails to optimize them.
This has the 'plus' of having most if not all ingredients enhancing/magnifying each other. It also means I have fewer capsules or tabs to swallow daily!
Unfortunately not many manufacturers have such mixes -- at least not the mixes I seek. And when I do find one, it usually is pricier than I think it ought to be.
Ginkgold Eyes won me over for herbal choices, dosages and price. I take one a day, not the recommended two.
This is because I also take another lutein with some Zeaxanthin. Another reason is that this comes with a small dose of ginkgo biloba, unusual for an eye herbal mix. Since I take 120 mg of ginkgo elsewhere during the day for memory, I don't want more than the small dose found in one Ginkgold Eyes tablet daily.
For me I think 60 mg of Bilberry daily is sufficient.
Result? I have a 60 day supply of Ginkgold Eyes for under $15!"

another great synergistic blend
I'm glad to see this back in stock. Nature's Way stopped providing this for awhile. These are full of nutrients and eye-benefitting herbs.
Be aware that there are fairly high dosages of ginkgo biloba and bilberry in here. Therefore if you also take bilberry with another blend that has xeaxanthin for example, or if you take ginkgo biloba for memory, watch your dosages.
From what I read we are not to exceed 180mg of ginkgo biloba daily. Period. And 180 mg of bilberry from all sources is plenty!
120 mg of bilberry daily may be enough for most people for eye regimen. Nature's Way alone provides that much.
This is a smaller easy-to-take pill in a gorgeous light purple. I LOVE taking synergistic pills like this for efficiency and optimal sake. I take fewer capsules & pills this way daily, and often the blends interact with each other.
I take bioperine -- 5 mg -- daily to increase absorption. Read your labels, sometimes it is already present in curcumin & a few other herbs. I don't think we are supposed to exceed 10 mg of bioperine daily, from my readings.
