Fovex softgel capsules are highly concentrated liquid filled capsules for oral administration. Each 1-gram capsule contains a propietary formulation of highly concentrated omega-3 1080 ethyl esters, with Lutein and Zeaxanthin.
Fovex provides more DHA per one capsule than any other product on the market.
Photoreceptor cells in the retina contain the highest concentration of DHA in the human body.
All Linoic Acid and EPA convert to DHA, but have a less than 20% conversion rate. Fovex provides the needed DHA directly to the retina.
The only way to safely consume beneficial amounts of DHA and EPA is through a molecularly distilled fish oil such as the ones found in Fovex softgel capsules.
Fovex provides a more convenient dosing regimen vs the other products. Fovex is a 1 capsule per day dosing vs 4- 7 capsules per day of some products.

Facts About Dry Eye
What is dry eye?
Dry eye occurs when the eye does not produce tears properly, or when the tears are not of the correct consistency and evaporate too quickly.
In addition, inflammation of the surface of the eye may occur along with dry eye. If left untreated, this condition can lead to pain, ulcers, or scars on the cornea, and some loss of vision. However, permanent loss of vision from dry eye is uncommon.
Dry eye can make it more difficult to perform some activities, such as using a computer or reading for an extended period of time, and it can decrease tolerance for dry environments, such as the air inside an airplane.
Other names for dry eye include dry eye syndrome, keratoconjunctivitis sicca (KCS), dysfunctional tear syndrome, lacrimal keratoconjunctivitis, evaporative tear deficiency, aqueous tear deficiency, and LASIK-induced neurotrophic epitheliopathy (LNE).
What are the types of dry eye?
1) Aqueous tear-deficient dry eye is a disorder in which the lacrimal glands fail to produce enough of the watery component of tears to maintain a healthy eye surface.
2) Evaporative dry eye may result from inflammation of the meibomian glands, also located in the eyelids. These glands make the lipid or oily part of tears that slows evaporation and keeps the tears stable.
Dry eye can be associated with:
Inflammation of the surface of the eye, the lacrimal gland, or the conjunctiva
Any disease process that alters the components of the tears
An increase in the surface of the eye, as in thyroid disease when the eye protrudes forward
Cosmetic surgery, if the eyelids are opened too widely
