During the development of Qualia Vision, we had some people take 1 capsule a day and other people take 2. We expected we’d see different responses when it came to how quickly there was relief from eye stress complaints related to screen time behaviors. We didn’t: both groups benefited about equally and just as quickly. Because of this, our general recommendation is to take 1 capsule a day of Qualia Vision for help with eye fatigue and relief for tired, sore, or irritated eyes. However, there are a few reasons why you might want to take 2 capsules.
If you have a lot of eye discomfort, spend a huge amount of time during the day or evening on screens, or have spent years staring at screens, you may want to replenish some eye resources more rapidly, in which case, we’d recommend taking 2 capsules a day, at least for the first month.
Another reason to take 2 capsules would be to match the dose of Lutemax® 2020 used in the B.L.U.E. study. In this study, 24 mg of Lutemax® 2020—the amount found in 2 capsules of Qualia Vision—was supplemented for 6 months and relieved eye strain and fatigue, enhanced visual performance and processing speed, promoted photostress recovery and contrast sensitivity, and supported better sleep quality.
