Pioneering diabetes eye supplement launched at Arab Health


A pioneering food supplement that protects the eye from damage caused by diabetes will be showcased in the Middle East for the first time at Arab Health 2018.

Being unveiled by British pharmaceutical wholesaler and distributor, CHAPPER healthcare (formerly Philip Chapper & Company Ltd), RetiCap® provides preventative support for patients with diabetic retinopathy.

Easy to swallow, the capsule offers a natural protection and concentrates on the increased need for nutrients for the eye caused by diabetes.
