Passing My Medical
Can a supplement actually improve eyesight?
Dear Paci;c Health,
I wanted to write your company a letter to
share my story with you. I consider myself
a professional pilot. I have been ;ying for as
long as I can remember. Flying is my favorite
thing to do and instructing is my second favorite.
When I am not instructing, I usually spend time
at the airport either working in my T-Hangar or
just shooting the bull with other pilots. I like to
give sensible advice to some of the younger
pilots, and give them pointers on how to get
their commercial careers off the ground…
no pun intended.
I have used the same aviation medical examiner for my entire aviation livelihood. I know that
before entering my 40s, I was always 20/20
vision. Since getting into my 40s, I have seen a
slight decline in my vision.
For example, I was planning a ;ight the
other day and I was having trouble reading
the winds aloft forecast. I found myself squinting more than normal while trying to get the
data to plan our course heading. Also, my
AME mentioned that my visual acuity was
measuring at 20/30. This is still within reasonable limits to renew my medical certi;cate,
but it still does not hide the fact that my vision
is slowly degrading.
Now, I consider myself to be a healthy person.
I eat healthy, exercise three days a week and
take various supplements, but it still isn’t good
enough. I have been thinking, “How long will
it be before I slip past 20/40 and have ‘must
wear corrective lenses’ stamped on my
On my most recent medical, which was about
four months ago, I decided to ask my aviation
medical examiner if he knew of anything that
could help my vision from degrading any farther. He mentioned a product called Claroxan.
The name rang a bell to me. I remember
picking up a magazine and seeing an article
about it, while we were fueling up at one of
the airports we ;y in and out of a few days a
week, but I hadn’t thought too much about it.
I gave the number a call and spoke with a
representative, ordered and haven’t looked
back since. I feel that my vision is much sharper
in only a few months. Staying with Claroxan is
de;nitely in my future and I am ready to take
my next medical examination, which is about
20 months away.

There is new evidence emerging about the bene;ts of
omega- 3 fatty acids and eye health. Research suggests
that omega-3s may play a role in protecting against
age-related macular degeneration (AMD). It is believed
that omega-3s modulate the extent of processes
involved in the development of AMD, such as preventing the formation of new blood vessels in advanced
AMD, reducing in;ammation and protecting against
Consumers have been aware of the cardiovascular

Strong Evidence Suggests Fish
Oil Reduces Risk of Age-Related
Claroxan contains the ingredients lutein and zeaxanthin, which are xanthophylls selectively concentrated
in the retina and macula of the eye. It is believed that
these ingredients help ;lter harmful blue light and
UV rays, protecting the eyes from free radical
damage, which can lead to the onset of age-related
vision loss. Research indicates that these ingredients
may also improve visual acuity and contrast.
Other ingredients found in Claroxan’s formulas, such as
bilberry, vitamin E, beta-carotene, and other bio;avonoids
are supported by a vast body of evidence suggesting
that they are bene;cial to maintaining healthy eyes and
supporting proper ocular function.
