My Vision Alive Max Review (2024) – Scam Or Not?

My Vision Alive Max Review (2020) - Scam Or Not?

It's time for my Vision Alive Max review, which is an eye supplement with a pretty good reputation.

But are there any chances that it's a scam?

I found a couple complaints about it, after all.

Well – I analyzed it in detail in the following lines, so here's the truth behind it (+ video).

Note: This review is based on my opinion + research on Vision Alive Max.

Review Summary

Full Name: Vision Alive by Holistic Health Labs

Product Type: Eye Supplement

Best Actual Price: Around $40/bottle

Cheapest Place To Buy: Its official website

Designed For: Vision and eye health support

My Rating: 8 out of 10

Recommended?: Only if you afford it – it's a good product:

  • unique formula with high-quality ingredients
  • many satisfied users
  • pretty effective overall

Still, I personally recommend a cheaper alternative with a slightly better formula.

So if Vision Alive is too pricey for you, better go for that product instead.


What I Liked About It

  • Based on Lutemax® 2020 (a trademark compound)
  • Contains many herbal extracts in high doses
  • Unique formula 
  • Only requires 1 pill per day
  • Many real customer opinions (and most are positive)
  • Not as pricey as it could be


What I Didn't Like About It

  • No vitamins/minerals among its ingredients
  • Shipping isn't free in any case (about $5)
  • Only sold on its official website
  • Not the cheapest option available



Vision Alive – A Quick Overview

Shortly – this is an eye supplement with a surprisingly potent composition.

Still, the most important aspect about Vision Alive is that it comes in 2 versions:

  1. Classic (3 ingredients)
  2. Max (8 ingredients)

Obviously – the Max version is more potent, but also more expensive.

However, the Classic form has been unavailable for a long while.

So if you want to get Vision Alive, the Max version is the only one you can get.

Other than that – it's surprisingly affordable:

  • price is between $30-$40/bottle
  • this depends on the quantity of bottles you buy
  • shipping costs around $5

So overall – it does make a supplement that you could get at any time.

Though it's not my top recommendation, it's definitely a product that is worth the shot.




#1 – Claims & Producer

Here are some general things you should know about Vision Alive:

  • how exactly it works
  • what issues it's designed for
  • who is its producer
1. Claims

Unlike most supplements – Vision Alive offers very little info about what it can do:

  • its promises are not clearly stated
  • it's not focused on the benefits it can bring

Instead, it's focused on the potency of its composition:

  1. Formula is different from other products.
  2. Rich source of anthocyanin, lutein and zeaxanthin. 
  3. Based on natural and powerful antioxidants.

And if you ask me, these claims are 100% true.

So Vision Alive looks like the kind of product that does what it promises.

2. Company Behind

The brand behind this supplement is called Holistic Health Labs:

  • it's a company with a great reputation
  • produces 4 other health supplements (for various issues)
  • offers many ways to get in touch with them

Basically – it's surely a trustworthy company, so scamming is out of question (in my view).

That's why you can order Vision Alive without any worries.



#2 – Formula (9 out of 10)

Vision Alive has one of the best compositions from the market:

However – it's definitely not perfect.

And the biggest drawback I found about it is the lack of vitamins and minerals (which are common in most competitors).

Now – as I said, Vision Alive comes in 2 versions (Classic & Max).

The difference is pretty significant and it lies in their formulas:

  • Classic is based on 3 ingredients
  • Max contains 8 nutrients

So it's quite obvious the Max version has a much better formula overall.

But let's analyze each of them more closely.

1. Vision Alive Classic

As I said – it contains 3 essential eye nutrients:

1. Bilberry & Blueberry Blend (500 mg) – it's a mix of 2 herbal extracts:

Also – Vision Alive contains a trademark version of each herbs.

This means they are optimized for a better effect and absorption.

2. Lutemax® 2020 – that's an award-winning ingredient that contains 2 types of nutrients:

  • Lutein – 10 mg
  • Zeaxanthin Isomers (RR and RS) – 2 mg

Now – the versions from Lutemax® are a lot more potent than the regular forms of lutein, zeaxanthin, etc.:

  • provides the exact 3 macular carotenoids
  • contains higher levels of zeaxanthin isomers
2. Vision Alive Max

Just like I said – this formula is pretty different than the Classic version:

1. Wild Bilberry Fruit Powder (280 mg) – it promotes vision clarity and accuracy.

2.  Blueberry Fruit Powder (120 mg) – it's rich is antocyanins and antioxidants.

These first 2 ingredients are the correspondent of Bilberry & Blueberry Blend from the Classic version.

3. Maqui Berry (30 mg) – it's another herbal extract:

  • improves dry and tired eyes [3]
  • also rich in antocyanins
  • may boost eye health on the long term

4. Saffron Extract (20 mg) – it can be very helpful for eye health:

  • prevents vision aging
  • can fight macular degeneration and cataracts
  • improves eyesight in adults

5. Astaxanthin (6 mg) – this herbal extract is a very potent antioxidant.

And just like lutein and zeaxanthin, it also boosts vision clarity and eye health.

6. C3G (2.2 mg) – it's a dark pigment and an antioxidant found in some various plants:

  • improves night vision
  • prevents macular degeneration [4]

7. Lutemax® 2020 – it's the same ingredient from the Classic version of Vision Alive.


Overall, Vision Alive has an excellent formula.

The Max version is indeed more potent – but the Classic one doesn't look too bad either:

  • both are mostly based on herbal extracts
  • their main ingredients have studies behind
  • some compounds have improved (trademark) versions

As I said – my only complaint is that there are no vitamins/minerals in any version.

When it comes to eye supplements, vitamins and minerals are a lot more helpful than in other types of supplements.

So that's the only thing I would change about Vision Alive.

Other than that – its formula looks awesome.



#3 – Pills & Dosage (10 out of 10)

This is one of the strong points of Vision Alive, if you ask me.

1. The Pills

According to its label – the pills are designed as vegetable capsules:

  • have a gelatin cover
  • dimensions should be at most average

Basically – this kind of capsules are usually very easy to take. 

So you shouldn't struggle to swallow them too much.

2. The Dosage

That's the biggest advantage of Vision Alive here:

  • it only requires one pill per day
  • you can take it at any time
  • I recommend taking it on a full stomach

Now – there are quite a few supplements that only require a capsule daily.

So if you're a busy person and you have a hard time remembering to take a pill at certain hours, Vision Alive is great.


#4 – Results (8 out of 10)

In order to see how this supplement works, I tried to look at its customer feedback.

And even though it's not sold on retailers – I still managed to find a couple of real opinions.

Note: I only analyzed authentic reviews, not promotional ones.

1. Positive Opinions

Basically – Vision Alive has a Facebook page with several user reviews:

  • they are written by people who actually used it
  • the opinions are pretty mixed

Now – here's what most praises are about:

  1. Some people say it really improved their vision.
  2. Others claim it helped their macular degeneration.
  3. A few others praise the company for getting back to them very fast.
  4. I also found a few positive opinions about eye inflammation.

So overall, I found enough satisfied users when it comes to Vision Alive.

That's why – from my point of view, it's not a scam in terms of effect.

Given that it has an awesome formula, it was impossible not to work for some people at least.

2. Negative Opinions

As you might guess – I also found some complaints about Vision Alive.

Most of them are related to:

  1. No therapeutic effect
  2. Worsened vision after taking the pills
  3. Shipping and money back guarantee issues

I also found 1-2 complaints from people claiming they were scammed.

But given the high number of authentic positive reviews, I pretty much doubt that was the case.


Like many legit supplements – Vision Alive has a mixed customer feedback:

  • some people say it's extremely effective
  • others claim it didn't help them at all

Now – it's not necessarily a supplement I would recommend right now.

But that's only because I prefer a cheaper alternative with a similar formula.

Still – objectively speaking, Vision Alive is a very potent supplement.




#5 – Side Effects (8 out of 10)

Vision Alive does have a couple of complaints about some potential side effects.

But if you ask me – they are too rare to worry about them:

  1. One user complains about worsened vision.
  2. Another person mentions headaches.
  3. I also found a complaint about stomach cramps.

Now – judging after its formula, this product shouldn't cause any severe issues.

So if you ask me, it's quite safe to take (as most eye supplements are).

It can indeed cause some issues – but they should be pretty rare normally.



#6 – Price (8 out of 10)

Surprisingly, Vision Alive is not as expensive as I expected.

Given its quality composition, I would have expected it to cost over $50.

But that's not quite the case.

1. The Exact Price

Vision Alive is only sold on its official website – so here are the pricing options:

  1. Standard cost is $39.95/bottle (+ about $6 shipping).
  2. Price gets a bit better if you go for larger quantities.
  3. So in the best case, it costs around $30/bottle.
  4. That's available if you go for the 6 months supply.

Also – if you sign up for auto-shipping, you manage to save almost $5.

But I wouldn't recommend that (until you test the product and see if it's worth it).

Besides, the pricing options I mentioned are available for the Max version.

The Classic form has been unavailable for a long while, so there's no way to buy it right now.

Now – Vision Alive is surely not a cheap product.

But considering it has an excellent composition, it could be a lot pricier.

So from one point of view, I could almost say it's worth the money (if I didn't know a better alternative).

2. Competitors' Price

I will only compare Vision Alive with my #1 recommended eye supplement.

I'm talking about a product called Lutenol:

  1. Both supplements have some excellent formulas.
  2. Vision Alive is better in terms of trademark ingredients.
  3. Still, Lutenol contains a higher variety of quality compounds.
  4. So Lutenol's formula is slightly better (if you ask me).
  5. Vision Alive costs $40/bottle normally.
  6. In the best case, you can get it for about $30.
  7. Lutenol's standard price is $28/bottle.
  8. In the best case, you can buy it for $20.

Basically – these 2 products are very similar in terms of quality and effect.

But Lutenol's ingredients are a bit better (due to their diversity).

Also – Lutenol is over $10 cheaper, which is another major advantage.

So between these 2 products, I would surely go for it (though Vision Alive is a great choice itself).


Vision Alive's price is actually decent, given its value.

It could cost a lot more (considering the price of other weaker supplements).

So in terms of price – it might be worth buying.

But even so, I recommend a cheaper alternative with a slightly better formula instead.




#7 – FAQs

In this section, let's quickly look at the frequently asked questions about Vision Alive.

Note: I might repeat something I already mentioned, but it's easier to spot here.

1. What health problems does it target?

Vision Alive targets eye health and macular degeneration.

Its formula is rich in classic ingredients which include potent clinically tested compounds.

To be exact, they are Lutein and Zeaxanthin Isomers sourced from Lutemax® 2020.

Due to these ingredients, it's a decent supplement for improving vision and overall eye health.

2. How do you take this supplement?

To take Vision Alive, you only need one pill daily.

It can be taken at any time of the day whichever you find convenient.

With that, the simplicity of its usage can be advantageous for people who struggle to remember specific pill-taking schedules.

3. Is it safe to combine with other supplements?

Yes – Vision Alive can be safely combined with other supplements.

In general, it's recommended to consume different supplements at separate hours.

This is to minimize the risk of adverse effects or interactions between them.

But since Vision Alive is flexible, it allows you to adjust its schedule easily.

So in that way, you can accommodate other supplements in your routine.

4. Are there any side effects associated with the product?

Generally, like most eye supplements, Vision Alive is considered safe to take.

However – some minor issues might occur based on a few user complaints:

  • headache and stomach cramps
  • worsened vision

But these incidents appear to be rare and severe issues are not expected due to the product's formula.

5. What is the cost of this product?

As of now, the Classic version of Vision Alive is currently unavailable for purchase. 

So we can only look at the pricing of the Max version which costs $39.95/bottle plus shipping fee.

For bulk purchases, the prices can go as low as around $30 per bottle (6 months supply).

Also – if customers opt for auto-shipping, they can save nearly $5.



#8 – Final Conclusions

Here's how I would sum up my opinion on Vision Alive (in 3 ideas).

1. Awesome Composition

This supplement has one of the best formulas I could find in an eye supplement:

  • based on classic ingredients
  • many of its compounds are clinically tested
  • high doses in most ingredients

So in terms of effect – this kind of composition should definitely help.

2. Based On Lutemax® 2020

Both versions of Vision Alive contain this last-generation trademark compound.

It's focused on 3 essential nutrients for macular degeneration:

  • Lutein
  • 2 Zeaxanthin Isomers 

Compared to the regular forms of these 3 ingredients, those from Lutemax® 2020 are definitely more potent.

3. Surprisingly Affordable

For the formula it has, Vision Alive could cost a lot more.

Now – its price is definitely not low (at $40/bottle).

But many supplements cost over $50 and they have much weaker ingredients.

So from this point of view, Vision Alive is worth this price.


#9 – My Video Review



My Verdict – Worth It Or Not?

Short answer: Pretty much yes.

It's not the best eye supplement I know – but it's definitely a really good one:

  1. Excellent composition and ingredients.
  2. Small daily dosage.
  3. Enough satisfied users behind it.
  4. Quite affordable for its superior quality.

Now – it's far from a cheap product. So it might seem a bit pricey for most users.

But given the high-quality of its ingredients, it's worth the money.

However – I personally recommend a cheaper alternative that also has a slightly better formula.

I'm talking about a product called Lutenol:

  • awesome composition with high-quality ingredients
  • lowest price from the market
  • excellent quality for the money

Whether you go for Lutenol or for Vision Alive, you're still making a great choice.

It's only up to your budget what exactly you choose.

    1. Hey Fran, that’s not the case for Lutenol or for eye supplements in general. You can see the ingredients themselves don’t cause these side effects on a regular basis, so there’s nothing to worry about. Hope this helps!

    1. Hi Robert, I cannot tell you for sure. Saffron supplements can interact with high blood pressure drugs, but Vision Alive Max doesn’t contain a very high dose of saffron (supplements based on saffron tend to contain around 100 mg). So normally, Vision Alive Max should be safe to take in your case from this point of view, since its saffron quantity if pretty low. But I would suggest asking your doctor’s consent first, just to be on the safe side.

  1. The disclaimer at the beginning of their website indicates that there are no medical claims involved with any of their products so you are just an educated shill for this company. All you are doing is agreeing with their claims as to what is in the product.
    So basically acting as a snake oil sales person for something holistic.
    Shame on you. At the end of the day when you look in the mirror you more than likely accept that you accomplished something because you made a bit of money.
    Your worth is measured in what you earn and not what you did to help someone.
    When I donate blood I do more in that 15 minutes than could ever do pitching that product.
    I have AMD and I truly think you are abhorrent. The stunned smug look in your photo says it all and its FOR FREE.

    1. Hi Sam, I am sorry you have such a bad opinion on me and I honestly have no idea why. I am not selling/promoting this product, I am not getting any commission in case someone buys it (or anything of this kind) and I have absolutely no connection with its producer. I simply analyze various health supplements objectively – which is exactly what I did with Vision Alive Max. And I can sincerely tell you that I consider it a good product, judging after its overall aspects. I am not tricking anyone into buying it, I simply said that it’s a better choice than many other products (though it’s not among the very best).

      So I honestly don’t understand your criticism…

  2. just order 1 month supply of vision alive and printed the purchase and the print out came back probio shield stop and send me what I order what wrong with this website?

    1. Hi Richard, I honestly have no idea why this happened. Try to contact the company because they are the only ones that can clarify this. Good luck!

  3. i started this about 2 weeks ago for dry eye because i wear contacts i could not believe it i am noticing in the morning my eyes water alittle then i thought wow they have not watered in years so something is working i will continue to use it but yes very costley

    1. Hello there. If you’re satisfied with the improvement you’re getting, it’s surely worth continuing to use it. Good luck!

  4. Hi,

    Thank you for offering this clearly written review. I like how you compared the two products and broke down the various aspects to let the reader make his or her own decision.

    One thing about Lutenol that leads me away from it is that on the label they “bundle” so many ingredients together into one amount, that it’s hard to know how much of the individual ingredients is actually there, and what the proportions are. Because of that I personally am leaning towards the more expensive product (which you also gave high praise for).

    Thanks again, Jay D in Puyallup, WA

    1. Hi Jay, thanks a lot for your feedback and for your words, I’m glad to hear my review is helpful. Yes, Lutenol does have several ingredients listed together, which is a thing I personally don’t like either. But in terms of formula, I still consider it better than Vision Alive Max. Still, the choice is all yours and I would be happy to hear that Vision Alive Max helps you. Please keep me updated on your progress with any supplement you choose.

  5. I have dry eyes and I learned about the supplement of Vision Alive MAX for dry eyes. I have been taking Vision Alive for a month and noticed no relieve. In addition, I experienced headaches. I was disappointed. Any comments?

    J. McNamara

    1. Hello Justina, I’m sorry for your negative experience with Vision Alive Max, probably this supplement is not suitable for your problems. If the headaches appeared short after you started using this product, it’s clearly that it was the responsible behind, so I really advise you to stop using it. As I said in the review, Vision Alive Max is not a bad product, but your body may simply not tolerate it well enough.

      Now, it’s up to you whether you want to try something else or not. My top recommended vision supplement is Lutenol, which is consider better than Vision Alive Max (and safer as well). If you want to give another product a try, I really recommend this option, I have many readers who had an excellent feedback on it.

      Hope this helps!

  6. Don’t waste your money.
    This stuff absolutely does not work and they will not refund your money. I was taking preservision before I bought vision alive max… within a week my vision started declining so I contacted the company via email after several attempts by phone. I received no response for my requested refund. HUGE SCAM ARTIST.
    I’m back on Preservision now and seeing much better.

    1. Hello Samuel, thanks for your feedback on Vision Alive Max, I’m so sorry to hear you wasted your money on this product.

  7. Do not buy this product unless you consult with your eye doctor first. I did not do that, my eye doctor never heard of this company or this product, but he advised me not to risk taking it because it may make my eye pressure go up (I have glaucoma). I never opened the bottle, so I called customer service to ask if I could return it, they said yes but I would need to pay for the shipping cost and i would have to reimburse them from my refund the cost of $4.95 for shipping it to me plus a processing fee of $2. I went to my nearest UPS store, they told me the cost of shipping would be $11.14 and if i sent it thru USPS it would cost $16. So i shipped the cheapest way because they also required a tracking method. Not happy with all the money I will be out of for an unused bottle of eye vitamins. So if you purchase it, make sure you plan on keeping it.

  8. I had my eyes examined before and after taking Vision Alive Max and my eyes have
    got considerable worse after two months. So, objectively I feel that I wasted a lot of money. Ironically when I ordered 6 bottles I was supposed to have got a bonus worth about $70 which turned out to two brief down-load promotional articles of no value to me.

    1. Thanks for sharing your experience with Vision Alive Max, I’m really sorry it didn’t work for you. Still, I consider it a pretty good supplement in terms of composition, so I’m quite surprised to hear it actually worsened your vision. Anyway, I advise you to take a look at this guide on improving vision, maybe some of the tips in here can come in handy to you. Hope this helps!

  9. The reviews here honestly scared me but thank goodness that the reality proved me wrong. At first, I was in doubt with this product because of the negative feedbacks here. Still, I braved the water and tested the product for myself. It was effective. My vision got better after only a few months of usage. However, I do feel like its lacking. As such, I will do my own effort of improving my vision by using natural remedies or something.

  10. I tried this out and it did not really dry out my eyes, if any of you are wondering. Unlike the previous commenters’ experience, I had a somewhat okay experience with it. But honestly, it wasn’t the best. Sure I can feel my eyes getting better but it was too slow to my liking. It ain’t the best but it wasn’t the worst, in my opinion.

    1. Thanks for sharing your experience with this product, Rhiannan. If you are interested, I think this supplement might just be what you need. Lutenol is known as an excellent eye supplement that will boost your eye health. However, there is also no such thing as a miracle medicine so do not expect tangible effect right away. This is all the same for medicines unless its a counterfeit or scam with a too good to be true claim. Also, following the steps in this guide towards a healthier eyes may be of use to you. Thank you!


  11. Just basing on the comments above, I think we are better off not buying this product. Finding better alternatives will be more advantageous than risking it.

    1. Hey, Diesel. To be honest, this is completely up to you. In fact, just simply changing some of our destructive routines brings a lot of benefits. Since we recognize the importance of healthy living, we found this guide for improving eye health for people with bad vision. It costs free and the effort you invest will surely be felt in the future. Aside from that, vitamins is also an option as it is essential to our body. On the other hand, if you would still like to give eye supplements a chance, we found Lutenol as the number one product that works well to this problem. Out of all the products that we came across with, this is by far one of the best.

      All the best,

  12. I noticed a lot saying that this product is not as good as it seems. You recommend Lutenol but what makes it better? Is it okay to take with other medicine?

    1. Hi Veronica! Lutenol is one of the top recommended supplement product for the eyes because of its overall benefit for our vision. Certainly, it’s not a miracle but it really brings in result worthy of your money. It has a great quality per price just basing on its ingredients and customer feedbacks. As for its safeness, its definitely relatively safe but just to be sure, asking your doctor for advice would be the best course of action. Thank you and take care!


  13. I think I’ll opt for a more natural remedy now instead of supplements. All this comments and my past experiences is making it hard for me to trust these brands again.

    1. Hello Aedan, Angelica here. I’m sorry that you’ve had such a bad experience from using supplements. Of course, using natural alternatives is much safer. In fact, we have this whole guide of steps to follow that will surely help in improving your eyesight naturally. Its pretty easy to understand and follow. While there are a lot of treatments like this not listed, that is because we picked the most effective. In fact, to make it more effective, taking vitamins will also help improve your eye health. Its proven essential for the body to function. I hope that this helps you.

  14. Hi my order is on its way. The first comment on a different site said “It helped her floaters and double vision”, Is this true?
    I am keeping my fingers crossed because my driving and watching tv are being effected. I am giving it a shot 🤞🏻

    1. Hello Diane, Vision Alive Max is not a bad product at all, so it has some high chances to be effective for your vision.

      Don’t expect it to work within a few days, because we’re talking about sight after all, but it can definitely help in the long run. It’s not my top recommended vision supplement, because I consider it a bit too pricey for what it contains, but it’s a pretty good option overall. And as long as you afford it, there shouldn’t be any problem.

      I would love to hear your results with it, so please keep me posted!

  15. I had gone through a DNA analysis by my eye surgeon. It indicated a higher than normal probability of macular degeneration.
    I started taking VISION alive and went to see the surgeon. He walked into the examination office looked in. My eye, looked at the test that were done and threw his hands up and said I can’t explain this, but you don’t need surgery. My vision has sharpened someone And has stated it seems to have stopped the macular degeneration, which makes me very happy

    I am 70 year old male, don’t smoke and try to take care of myself as best I can with my doctors help

    1. Hey Tim, I’m so happy for the results you had with Vision Alive Max, thanks a lot for sharing them. I know a lot of my readers weren’t too satisfied with this product, so it’s great to hear someone had such incredible results with it! All the best for you!

  16. Hi! I hate fillers. Yes I agree, I also praised Vision Alive Max’s ingredient, it’s kind of pricey but if I compare to Performace Lab vision, it’s almost alike with no fillers, no Lutemax.

    Why don’t you do a review of this PL Vision? Thanks.

    1. Hey Marcie, thanks for your insight, I’m not really sure what you mean by “PL Vision”. I couldn’t find any product with this name, so maybe you can tell me more about it and I can analyze it here (and maybe even write a review of it later on).

  17. I’ve gone through Lutenol, it seems like it’s using a lot of synthetic vitamins. Vision Alive Max seems much better if you are going for a whole foods route.

    1. Hey Chloe, I definitely agree, but if you feel like Vision Alive Max is a better option for you, you can choose that. Lutenol’s formula is a lot more versatile, meaning that is also includes vitamins (which are not synthetic, by the way) but also herbs and nutrients. On the other hand, Vision Alive Max only contains some herbal extracts, which are by no means bad, but the overall formula is not as varied as that of Lutenol. A lot of people with vision issues have nutrient deficiencies, that’s why I consider Lutenol’s composition to be a lot more helpful and effective.

      But as I said, feel free to go for Vision Alive Max if you like it better.
