Vitamins and Macular Degeneration

Age-related Macular Degeneration (AMD) is the leading cause of visual impairment among older adults in developed countries. Most treatments are directed toward the advanced stages of the disease. Prevention may be more likely to yield significant results than treatment. Toward this end, research has revealed that vitamin supplementation can be helpful in slowing the rate of visual loss in patients with AMD.

AREDS and AREDS 2- These large-scale National Eye Institute studies found benefits of dietary supplementation in patients with age-related macular degeneration to include Vitamin C, Vitamin E, lutein, zeaxanthin, zinc, and copper.
