Vision 20 is an eye health supplement that sounds amazing, but also sounds too good to be true.
Is Vision 20 a scam supplement you should avoid? Well, I’m not recommending it and you will see why.
It seems that most of the reviews out there are just promoting it like crazy, so I think reading mine will be a breath of fresh air. In this I’ll be going over some of the ridiculous information you are told, whether or not the ingredients will actually help and more.

- Recommended?: Not really
Vision 20 is an eye-health supplement created by Dr Ryan Shelton at Zenith Labs. After my review I found that it does have some potential to help, but it isn’t something I’m going to be telling people to go out and buy. The marketing behind it is too much for my liking and I also think it is a bit too costly.
To start off this review, let’s go over the ridiculous sales pitch, which is probably what made you think this might be a scam in the first place…
The Ridiculous Sales Pitch
What I came across is the video presentation shown below, but I’m sure there are probably multiple variations and I know there is a written text version as well. No matter what sales page you landed on, I’m sure it was ridiculous and made Vision 20 sound too good to be true.
It seems like the sales pitches always start out with some sad story. The story here was about a lady named Diane who lost her ability to drive, read, and lost her independence–she got lost at night while driving and had to ask for directions, which embarrassed her because she didn’t seem very capable.
We are told that an “invisible blue radiation is attacking every man and woman in America over the age of 45”, which is misleading.
What they are talking about here is blue light, which does damage our eyes. But its affecting everyone, not just older people. And, it’s not like this is some new occurrence. The most blue light we get comes from the sun, and even if you lived 1000 years ago you would have the same blue light problem from it. That said, it is true that we are ‘overexposed’ to some extent nowadays due to all the electronic devices we look at.
Typical Fear Mongering..
The sales pitch here is your pretty typically scammy fear mongering type–where they try to scare you into buying their product.
In the video presentation I watched the spokesman stated very firmly that declining eyesight “will make your family think that they have to take care of you”, “it will rob you of respect at work”, “it will trap you at home” and so on…
It’s true that bad eyesight can lead to all of this, but they take this sales pitch a bit too far and try to make it seem like it is an absolute fact that all of this will happen.
Of Course It’s Some Hidden Natural Remedy..
Just like many of the other scammy supplements I expose on my website here, the secret to saving your health all comes from some flower that you might have growing in your yard right now–which will protect you against blue radiation.
As the sales pitch goes–Marigold contains 2 very special nutrients called Lutein and Zeaxanthin.
A Little Background On The Company Behind This Product
So… Vision 20 is a product by Zenith Labs, who has a medical director named Dr Ryan Shelton, who you probably heard of if you read or watched the sales pitch.I am actually familiar with this company and Dr Ryan because I have reviewed products in the past that are made by it, such as Blood Sugar Premier and Hearing X3–which by the way were marketed in very similar scammy ways and neither did I end up recommending to my readers.
The company and Dr Ryan Shelton are well known for hyping up products to seem like they will work miracles when they really are nothing all that special, which is exactly what they are doing with Vision 20.
Also, Zenith Labs is a very small company that I don’t really trust all that much. Not just because of the ridiculous marketing tactics they use to sucker people into buying their products, but also because the company address they give us doesn’t really make sense.
On the website (zenithlabs.com) they state that their address is:
4610 Prime Parkway
McHenry, IL, 60050, USA
… however, when I search this address in Google the only company I can find located here is called Corporate Disk Company, which is a company that does printing, CD/DVD duplication/replication and things like this.
So I don’t really know what’s going on here.

Ingredients – Will They Really Work?
Here is the label from a Vision 20 bottle…
The main ingredients are Zeaxanthin and Lutein. But we are told that they are only absorbed if also taken with zinc, and of course you need the exact right type of zinc–and they act like this supplement is the only one on earth that has it. Furthermore, they tell us that we need the EXACT right ratio of these ingredients and that it is “almost impossible” to figure it out on our own–which is why we need to buy Vision 20 of course!
Will Zeaxanthin & Lutein Help?
One of the ways mentioned that these two carotenoids help your eyes is by protecting your lens, absorbing ROS toxins that could potentially damage them. This is true. These carotenoids are what make up the macular pigment in our eyes and are thought to protect against a number of eye diseases. They are known to have light filtration properties that protect our eyes by keeping damaging blue light from going too deep into our retinas, and they also have been shown to have local antioxidant activity, protecting against oxidative damage (source: 2017 study published in Molecules).
As stated on Healthline, these two compounds basically work as a natural sunblock. They are not all hype and really do have a fair amount of scientific studies backing their importance.
Bilberry extract is another ingredient here that is really hyped up. In the sales pitch we are told that British Air Force pilots ate them and their night vision improved because of it, allowing them to shoot down Nazi planes with better accuracy. While this story hasn’t really been proven with solid evidence, there is some hope for this ingredient. There is definitely a lack of scientific backing as for its ability to improve your eyesight, but at the very least it is a good source of antioxidants and should help protect against oxidative damage. Furthermore, it has been shown to help with dry eyes and a 2015 study from the Journal of Nutrition, Health, & Aging found that it helps with eye fatigue as well.
As far as Rose Hip goes, there doesn’t seem to be all that much evidence backing it’s ability to improve eye health, but a lot of articles that I have found online do suggest it does help.
There are also other ingredients like Beta-carotene, Lycopene, and vitamin C–but these are very easily found in normal foods and most people are likely already getting enough in their diets.
An Over-hyped Product That Could Work
It seems like what we have here is another product that is way over-hyped, but could actually work–or at least help.
I am not a fan at all of the marketing around this product. Much of it is extremely misleading and they try to scare us into buying it, but based on the ingredients alone it’s not all that bad.
Conclusion – Worth Trying or Not?
I’m not going to say you shouldn’t buy it, and if you want to you can buy Vision 20 on the official website here, but I’m not going to be actively recommending it either.
In my opinion, yes it could help with eyesight, but it is too over-hyped and because of this it is over-priced. I think there are better alternatives out there.
What you could do is simply look for products with the same ingredients on Amazon, which there are plenty of.
Anyways… I hope you enjoyed this review and found it helpful. Be sure to leave any comments or questions below and I’ll get back to you soon 🙂
