Preventing Macular Degeneration

Good vision is critical for so many things that we do each day. Driving, reading, watching our children or grandchildren play, enjoying nature - the list goes on and on.

As life expectancy increases, diseases like macular degeneration (AMD) become a significant threat to our vision. That's because this disease is age related. The longer we live, the more susceptible we are to age related diseases.

The good news here is that we can dramatically decrease the odds for losing our vision from AMD. We can do this in a variety of ways:

  • Don't smoke
  • Eat a diet rich in antioxidants (fruits & vegtables)
  • Limit your eye's exposure to UV (ultra violet light) and blue light
  • Take macular supplements that have been proven to protect the macula

As far as supplements go, our favorite is Nordic Naturals Pro DHA Eye. It combines a high quality and absorbable omega 3 with high levels of FloraGLO Lutein and zeaxanthin. This combination of ingredients has been shown (in multiple studies) to protect the macular cells. This helps prevent the onset and progression of AMD.
