Are You At Risk For AMD ?

Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD) is a chronic irreversible medical condition that results in the loss of central vision because of damage to the macular, also known as the central part of the retina. It occurs with increasing age and is most commonly seen in people who are over 60 years of age. One may see shadows in vision, have distorted vision, experience 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 help prevent AMD and slow progression of the disease by preventing blue light from reaching the underlying structures of the retina, thereby reducing the risk of light-induced oxidative damage that could lead to AMD.

Smoking Can Affect Your Vision Health

Smoking is a risk factor for certain eye diseases such as age-related macular degeneration, cataracts, glaucoma and diabetic retinopathy. This is because it reduces blood flow and nutrient supply to the eyes and increases the amount of toxic substances like tar and nicotine in the body.  Hence, protect your eyes by quitting smoking. Consider taking an eye care supplement that contains Lutein, Zeaxanthin and various antioxidants to reduce age-related vision degeneration.
