A Good Supplement for the Eyes?
I take BioSil capsules (a bioavailable form of silica) for general health. Would this be coincidentally beneficial to the eyes?

Would it be beneficial to take one 6 mg Lutein each day?

No special supplement is needed for eye unless you have some retina problem, also taking too much supplement too is also toxic.

My optometrist and retinologist would disagree with you. The first recommended lutein and zeaxanthin for general eye health, and the second recommended saffron for macular degeneration.

A huge NIH study AREDS-2 is underway but won't conclude for several years. It's looking at whether taking a multivitamen plus lutein/omega 3 will prevent age related macular degeneration from developing.  AREDS-1 showed that for people with dry macular age degeneration that a multivitamen plus Vit A,C,E, zinc, copper slowed the progression of dry ARMD.
