Are you at risk for AMD ?

Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD) is a chronic irreversible medical condition that results in loss of central vision because of damage to the macula, or central part of the retina. It occurs with increasing age and most common for people over 60 years of age. One may see shadows in vision, have distorted vision, or decreasing visual acuity, as well as the inability to discern colours or make out colour contrast when diagnosed with AMD. Studies found that Lutein and Zeaxanthin either help prevent AMD or may slow progression of the disease by block blue light from reaching the underlying structures in the retina, thereby reducing the risk of light-induced oxidative damage that could lead to AMD.
