When my husband began complaining about having trouble driving home from work at night because he was seeing doubled and blurred visions, I remembered reading articles about English pilots during WW1. They were having trouble seeing at night and had discovered they solved the problem by eating bilberry. Apparently they ate it allot in jam. I ordered this bilberry because it was fresh and whole. My husband started it taking 2 capsules three times a day. It didn't take long before he noticed less vision problems driving at night (had no problem during the day). He maintained six a day for about three weeks then started to slowly decrease the dosage. He now takes one cap. three times a day and has no night vision difficulties. It worked beautifully for him and he'll keep on taking it. Small price to pay for his eyesight.
If my understanding from the suppplement Facts is correct, each capsule yielding 6.6 mg. I have been taking one cap three times a day so total of approx 20 mg a day which is perhaps too little. Will take 2 caps and see what happen. Also the spelling of the plant name and active substance is not the same as other brand, confusing.
