Age-Related Macular Degeneration

There has recently been some new clinical data released that I believe may benefit your macular degeneration.  The scientifically based information suggests that appropriate vitamin and mineral supplements can help protect and preserve your vision.

Age-Related Macular Degeneration (ARMD) is the leading cause of blindness in people over 65 and the leading cause of severe vision loss in people over 50 (more than cataracts and glaucoma combined).

ARMD can build slowly, then progress rapidly, leading to a loss of central vision.

Daily activities such as reading or driving can become difficult, if not altogether impossible.

Clinical Study

An exciting new discovery, which slows the progression of Age-Related Macular Degeneration and reduces the risk of vision loss from ARMD, has just been announced from a 10-year Age-Related Eye Disease Study (AREDS), sponsored by the National Eye Institute, a division of the National Institutes of Health.

The study was conducted on a double blind, placebo-controlled study group consisting of 3,609 people, ages 55-80, to demonstrate the value of vitamin and mineral supplements in the preservation of eye health and vision.

Those at the highest risk for developing advanced ARMD lowered their risk by about 25% while those with intermediate ARMD or advanced ARMD in only one eye reduced the risk of vision loss by about 19% when treated with a unique high-potency, antioxidant vitamin and zinc supplement.
