I've used Claroxan off and on for several year. My scores will improve while I'm taking it then the supply runs out and I say that I really don't see any difference, Stop taking it and over several months my scores go down. I'll start back and they pick back up. Is it the pills or just the normal ups and downs of the game. What do you think. Cost about a buck a day if it works so what.

I don't normally do drugs so I have no idea what it is. Mind telling us?

It's a vitamin compound that's supposed to improve your vision. Marketed toward hunting and shooting sports.

The main ingredients in it I think are Luetien, Billberry and Zanaxithian(sp?) Luetien I believe is a proven help for eye health. It is supposed to curb the onset of macular degeneration. Billberry is supposed to sharpen the eyesight and was noted during WWII when British airmen reported sharper vision after eating it but the true benefits have not been tested. Both are readilly available (a lot cheaper) at Walmart or Walgreens. Zanaxithian(sp?) is less available but I have found it in health food stores. When I took it over a period of time I saw no difference in my eyesight or shooting. None of these are considered drugs, they are classified as suppliments. I still take Luetien and billberry with a Centrum like vitamin pill every day. At 55 years old I need to stay healthy and hope to maintain my eyesight. I am on no drugs or pills so far.
I am not a doctor or anything of the sort(I'm a CPA) so don't take anything I say about vitamins or suppliments as gospel, investigate it yourself.

The adverts I see for this stuff just kill me..! It's obvious they have no idea who they are marketing to or how absoluetly stupid their characters appear.

Take the TV advert.....Two guys shoulder to shoulder standing in the open. The guy with the gun is supposed to see something "unseeable" without the product and then begins to open fire with his high power rifle, sending 4 or 5 rounds down range...OFF HAND..! Neither of them wearing any eye or ear protection....in the early commercials. Now I think they have safety glasses but, still no ear protection.

Did he hit the animal with every shot..?
Did he hit it at all..?!

Oh yeah, and how bout that rugged unshaven look they have...I'll bet the girls are just drooling.

What a joke...!! Are they that stupid or do they really believe we are..?

Which one do you take---there are two or three "strengths" or formulas that they offer.

I've been taking Claroxan for over 4 years now. Started with the Original formula then switched over to the Claroxan 45 about 18 months ago. I'm 48 yo and I have been wearing RX lenses for distance only since I was 28.

Is the Claroxan a miracle drug? No!

Does it help? IMHO-Yes!

I get an eye exam every year and for the past 3 exams (latest one on 11/2/09) my vision has actually improved slightly each time requiring less correction. At my most recent eye exam I was able to read the 20:15 line corrected whereas before, I was only able to read to 20:20 line corrected. My Eye Dr. told me that he hardly ever sees vision improve at my age. Unrelated to our sport but the other thing that I've noticed is that my night vision is much better.

Is this due to Claroxan as a vitamin supplement? Can't say. Am I going to keep on taking it? You bet!

On others I rely on: emptystomach.

I have ran the theory by a few MD's - they are all consistent with their replies - there is no emperical evidence supporting that it "works."

4evrAA,

Let me guess, you're nearsighted right? Your distance vision will improve as you get older, but you'll need reading glasses. Happens to everybody who is nearsighted. Sorry.
