The results of the use of the natural complex Resverazin® in treatment of vascular retinal disorders

June 22, 2018
Specialities :

In an open-label study, we studied the efficacy of the natural antioxidant complex Resverazin®, containing resveratrol 150 mg, red wine extract 100 mg and grape seed extract 50 mg, in the ophthalmic practice. A group of 20 volunteers selected based on the criterion of marked retinal angiopathy was administered 1 capsule of the complex Resverazin® twice daily for 2 months. A pre- and post-study standard ocular examination was performed, including vizometry, biomicroscopy, capillaroscopy of the bulbar conjunctiva, tonometry, refractometry, ophthalmoscopy, optical coherence tomography, fundus imaging with a fundus camera in the standard settings. The study results demonstrated a statistically significant increase in the visual acuity, improved microcirculation in the bulbar conjunctiva, and increased retinal artery diameter after Resverazin® administration, without any adverse effects. The natural complex can be recommended for use in ophthalmic practice in treatment regimens intended for vascular retinal disorders of various origins.
