    Has anyone tried these and does anyone know the effectiveness of them? I was looking at Optiall, see below. But I have no idea what a lot of the other ingredients are like Quercetin and Taurine, etc. Is there a link or a site that explains all this and the effectiveness of them???

    What's your reasoning in taking them?

    I know that Lutein and Zeaxanthin help. They are said to help in Macular Degeneration as well.
