Ophthalmologist 's  Response
Glo eye tablets contain, multivitamins, proteins and antioxidants. They are usually prescribed in elderly individuals for preventing some age related diseases.
In Ophthalmology they are prescribed to delay the progression of cataract, age related macular degeneration and some other eye diseases seen in elderly individuals.
Hence I advice you to get it clarifoed whether you are having any of these diseases which require these supplements to delay the progression of the disease.
Thank you
