AMD Awareness

Did you know that Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD) destroys central vision, is the leading cause of severe vision loss in adults over age 55, and currently affects approximately 15 million people? Due to the aging Baby Boomer population, the incidence of AMD is expected to triple by 2025. While there is no cure for AMD, and its effects are irreversible, there are both modifiable and non-modifiable risks.

Non-Modifiable Risk Factors for AMD:

  • Family History
  • Smoking (past or present)
  • Age

  • Unprotected exposure to the sun
  • Gender – females are more at risk
  • Obesity
  • Poor diet

The modifiable risk factors can be greatly reduced by taking AREDS 2 supplements daily, wearing sunglasses to protect the eyes and eating a diet with plenty of dark green leafy vegetables. Backed by over 20 years of scientific research, the AREDS 2 Plus Multi-Vitamin is guaranteed to help protect vision from age-related eye health issues. AREDS 2 Plus Multi-Vitamin is formulated to provide essential nutrients that also improve overall health.

MacuHealth®

Age-related macular degeneration or AMD is the deterioration of a part of the retina called the macula, which controls your ability to see fine detail. This disease is the leading cause of vision loss among Americans above the age of 65. Fight AMD with MacuHealth®, a soft-gel supplement that contains LMZ3 that’s designed to help enhance your vision by revitalizing the natural pigments in your eyes.

MacuHealth

How Does It Work?

MacuHealth® with LMZ3 contains three essential nutrients: lutein, zeaxanthin, and meso-zeaxanthin, which make up the natural substance known as macular pigment. With regular consumption of these essential carotenoids, you can reduce the onset of AMD and loss of central vision by decreasing the amount of oxidative stress on the macula.

Studies have shown that consuming these nutrients in a 10:10:2 formulation is crucial to maintaining healthy vision. While lutein and zeaxanthin can be found in many vegetables, meso-zeaxanthin is more commonly found in trout. Unfortunately, the standard Western diet does not provide enough nutrients to fully supplement your eyes’ needs. As a result, many experts believe that taking supplements is the optimum method of protecting your macula.

Who Is It For?

MacuHealth® is for you if you experience any of the following symptoms:

  • Seeing a blurry or blind spot in the center of your field of vision
  • Colors seem more muted and less vibrant
  • You require more light when reading and experience difficulty in low-lit areas
  • Printed words appear blurry
  • Have difficulty recognizing faces
  • Overall blurry or hazy vision
  • Glare bothers you

Talk to our Lake Worth eye doctors immediately if you experience any of these symptoms.

Macular degeneration progresses differently for every individual. In some, it may advance more slowly, while there are those who may suffer faster loss of vision in one or both eyes. The nutrients found in MacuHealth supplements have been shown to reduce the risk of AMD and even improve overall visual acuity in some cases.
