SBH has been partnering with optometrists and ophthalmologists since 1997, providing evidence-based nutritional formulations, education and practice support. With the support of its new Optometric Advisory Board, SBH is looking to expand its educational initiatives in the optometric market.

"For the past 13 years, SBH has been a leader in the field of nutrition and eye health," said Alain Magro, president of ScienceBased Health. "We began educating eye care practitioners on the role of nutrition in eye health at a time when there wasn't much awareness about its benefits. Optometrists have been taking a broader and more proactive role in managing their patients' visual health needs. As a result, there has been tremendous growth in the number of optometrists recognizing the important role of nutrition in enhancing patient care. We are thrilled to welcome our new advisors, who will assist us as we increase our level of educational support to the optometric market."

"Our practice has been working with SBH for over ten years with excellent patient satisfaction," said Kenneth Daniels, OD, FAAO. "After researching the many ophthalmic-based nutritional companies, we found SBH to have the most scientific approach, to be the most proactive in updating its formulations based on new research, and to offer an excellent ongoing practitioner and patient support system."

"SBH provides the entire nutrition solution for a patient's visual needs," said Paul Karpecki, OD, FAAO. "The formulations are based on sound scientific research around various eye-related conditions, including dry eye, macular degeneration, glaucoma, and diabetes. The company offers a convenient delivery system to enhance patient compliance as well as excellent support to help busy practitioners offer this important value-add service to their patients in the most efficient manner."
