Rated 5 out of 5 by from lutien supplements Overall experienced quality eye health. Could obtain from foods- however the convenience and ease of taking these supplements is much better. Will continue taking these for extended eye health.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Recommended by top Ophthalmologist My Ophthalmologist, who teaches at Stanford Medical School, not only recommended Lutein, but he recommended I buy it from Swanson because of the high quality of their Lutein. I've been very happy with this product, especially since it's in easy-to-swallow pills.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for eyes I have been using this a while. I tried other lutein, but come back to this one. I have dry eye and this 40 mg. has helped so much. I have recommended to others.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Conjecture How are we to know if it actually helps in such a short time? In fact, do we ever know if any supplement helps us? And shipping times are awfully long, I'm talking about WEEKS long!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to swallow Many pills are hard to swallow but these are just right. I know that not any pill is going to prevent Macular degeneration but I feel that if I take Swanson's Lutein, I will keep my eyes healthy

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow After taking this product for about a week I suddenly noticed that the image on my TV was a lot clearer. Unexpected pleasure! I am a 62 year old male and seriously never expected my vision to improve.Still can't believe it. JS

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Useful for aiding vision I take this supplement for support for my eyes. Everything I have read says lutein is a good antioxidant for the eyes and I am taking it for that reason. I cannot really see any difference in my eyesight, but a friend of mine who takes Eyes Alive and has difficulty with her vision can see a difference.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Clearly a bargain Purchased a bottle of Lutein 40 mg. Roughly a week to ten days later realized the TV image was more in focus. Happily surprised and grateful!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Swanson Ultra Lutein As we all know Lutein is good for eye sight - Swanson Ultra Lutein offers more in one soft gel, 40 mg. then I have seen in other products. My pharmacologist has expressed the importance of Lutein for the eyes. Since Swanson Ultra Lutein offers 40mg in one soft gel that is the one for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from a good buy Swanson's Lutein 40mg is effective and has the best price in the market.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It is not easy finding 40mg of lutein, so I was happy to see that Swanson carried the product, as well as the fair price. I signed uo to have it delivered every month which is so convenient.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Product Although my husband has worn glasses for several years, he began to notice with middle age that it was getting much harder to focus for reading. I purchased the Swanson's Ultra Lutein for him about a year ago and he says it's a definite improvement for him. He says it improves the focus and makes it easier to read! Also if he forgets to take it for a few days he notices the difference!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Product Swanson is the only place I have been able to get 40mg of Lutein. My eyes don't seem as dry when I take this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Product I was told by a nurse to take lutein for my eyes and since I order from Swanson alot decided to give them a try. They are very convenient to take, 1 a day and so far so good.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lutein helps I have very poor vision and need eye supplements. The Lutein is very reasonably priced and quite helpful.
Date published: 2013-03-31
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Leutin 40 MG I was told quite some time ago to take Leutin for my eyes. However, the only OTC pills are something like 10 mg. I love that I can take 40mg per day in one pill and at a 1/4 of the price. Even though I live in Canada, I find Swanson's prices to be excellent value and although the delivery is pretty slow, it is worth the wait for all my vitamin requirements.
Date published: 2013-02-12
Rated 5 out of 5 by from POWERFUL EYE PROTECTION Eye health, good vision, and eye protection are at the top of my list of things that are of utmost importance to me. Thanks to Swanson, I am able to take this powerful 40 mg.Lutein capsule every day, instead of the commonplace 6 mg. capsules I see in stores at prices similar to Swanson's ultra reasonable price for the real deal - - - this beautiful 40 mg. soft shell capsule. One's vision is too precious to take for granted or treat lightly. I seriously recommend Swanson's Ultra Lutein 40 mg. capsules to everyone.
