Ocu-Clear® (DISCONTINUED)


After careful consideration, we have decided to discontinue Ocu-Clear (SF798). Continued difficulties with manufacturing the product in its current form no longer justifies further production. A new eye formula is in the works to replace it. However this formula is still under development. Until this new formula becomes available we offer the following formulas as alternatives:

  • Anti-Oxidant (SF709): broad-spectrum antioxidant formula with phase I and II liver detoxification cofactors*
  • Planti-Oxidant (SF701): potent plant-based flavonoid antioxidants, with three exceptional flavonoid-phytosome complexes for superior absorption*
  • OcuClear Eye Vitamin AREDS Plus Formula (OPT103): Named after the National Eye Institute's Age Related Eye Disease Study (AREDS) this formula is from one of Thorne Research's specialty programs and consists of the same general nutrients and quantities used in the study – beta carotene, vitamin C, vitamin E, zinc and copper – and then adds key nutrients, including selenium, lipoic acid, glutathione, and vitamin B6, all of which are vital components of the antioxidant capacity of the retina and lens of the eye.*

a comprehensive formula to support good visual function*
  • a complete eye-health formula, with lutein*
  • contains eye-protective essential minerals, flavonoids, carotenes, and antioxidant nutrients*
  • promotes circulation to the eye to support vision*

Product Information

During waking hours, the eye is continuously exposed to oxygen, light, smoke, pollutants, and chemicals. The resultant oxidative processes and decreased antioxidant capacity are implicated in many eye-related problems. On the other hand, several antioxidant vitamins, minerals, carotenes, and flavonoids have been shown to support vision and the health of the eye.* Ocu-Clear contains a broad spectrum of nutrients and plant extracts that promote eye health.*

The protective nutrients in Ocu-Clear include the full spectrum of carotenes (from mixed carotenes), as well as selenium, zinc, vitamin C, lipoic acid, glutathione, and vitamin E, all of which are vital components of the antioxidant capacity of the retina and lens of the eye.*

Plant extracts also provide important support for the eye.* Lutein is a vital component of the macula and may provide antioxidant protection to this area of the retina.* Vaccinium myrtillus (bilberry extract) is an excellent source of anthocyanoside flavonoids, which have an affinity for the retina. In addition to antioxidant activity, these flavonoids can act to support the eye's connective tissues and blood vessels.* Ginkgo biloba also acts as an antioxidant and membrane stabilizer.* Quercetin can limit the conversion of glucose to sorbitol and, in turn, limit sorbitol's accumulation in the lens of the eye.* Water-soluble quercetin is Thorne's well-absorbed quercetin.**

The retina of the eye contains one of the highest concentrations of the amino acid taurine in the body. In addition to acting as an antioxidant in the eye, taurine seems to be a regulator of neuronal excitability, fluid regulation, detoxification, and membrane stabilization.*

Ocu-Clear enhances ocular antioxidant activity, helps maintain normal intraocular pressure, strengthens ocular collagen structures, and promotes circulation to the eye to support vision.*
