The leading cause of blindness for American’s over the age of 60 is macular degeneration. While there is no cure for macular degeneration, there are many things that a person can do to reduce the risk of developing this disease such as:
- Stopping to smoke
- Wearing sunglasses
- Eating healthy or taking supplements of Lutein, Zeaxanthin and Meso Zeaxanthin
While all of these are important and recommended by our optometrist, Dr. Schwartz, vitamins may offer more than just AMD prevention. According to some of the latest research, patients with healthy levels of Lutein, Zeaxanthin and Meso Zeaxanthin had significantly lower instances of Alzheimer’s.
