The Lunovus Story

Founded by An Ophthalmologist

Lunovus was founded in 2004 by Dr. John O. Mason III, an Ophthalmology Retina specialist at the UAB Callahan Eye Foundation Hospital in Birmingham Alabama.  Dr. Mason discovered his grandmother was suffering from Macular Degeneration.  To find a solution to help her, he completed extensive research and created the premier Macular Degeneration supplement formula, before the now-famous “AREDS” study results actually came out.

He started his company, then known as Macular Health, to help people just like his grandmother.  Over time, Macular Health eventually transitioned into becoming Lunovus LLC.

Lunovus LLC has recently reorganized and remains committed to our tradition of providing quality and affordable eye care products as well as initiating an innovative patient portal delivery system for doctors and patients.  Both Dr. Mason and Mr. Jeff McAnnally recently transferred their interest to their remaining partners and the leadership to Dr. Marnix Heersink, an American Board of Ophthalmology Diplomat, Board Certified Ophthalmic Surgeon and long standing member of the American Academy of Ophthalmology.

Lunovus History

Our Mission: Helping Patients, Serving Physicians

By tackling persistent eye conditions like Dry Eye and Macular Degeneration, we will remain focused on both helping physicians promote patients’ health and finding ways to improve and sustain revenue streams for physician practices.

The company that was founded by a physician remains a company operated by physicians.

Lunovus and its physicians understand the challenges doctors face in their practice, and so we proudly dedicate our efforts to providing quality and effective products, maintaining affordable prices, and helping the needs of patients and physicians.

Our Focus on You
Listening to Patients
We start by listening to patients. Then we collaborate on new ideas to develop unique, novel products that help you achieve the best possible eye health you can.
Proprietary Blend
Blephadex’s proprietary blend of tea tree and coconut oil is one example. To help keep eyelids clean gently and effectively, it offers a solution not available anywhere else in the market.
Lunovus Eyelid Care
Another example is our innovative one-pill-only Premier Formula supplement, and our chewable, berry-flavored AREDS 2 for the 40% of Americans who cannot swallow pills.
We will continue to develop new and innovative solutions for health and eye care that fill the needs for our patients.
