Macular Degeneration

Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD) is the leading cause of blindness in people over the age of 50. Though often experienced as a sudden distortion or loss of vision, it is actually a slow, progressive deterioration of the macula (the part of the eye needed to provide sharp central vision). The patient is often unaware of the condition until serious, many times irreversible, visual symptoms occur.

What can I do to prevent AMD?

Along with lifestyle changes, numerous articles have been written in medical journals discussing the role of antioxidant nutritional supplements for patients at risk or diagnosed with macular degeneration. In particular, the Multicenter Ophthalmic and Nutritional Age-Related Macular Degeneration Study encouraged doctors to suggest use of dietary supplements for their patients. Most recently, a ten year Age-Related Eye Disease Study (AREDS) showed that a specific combination of high potency antioxidants, vitamins and zinc slowed the progression of AMD, reducing the risk of vision loss from this disease.
