Supplements for Age-Related Macular Degeneration

Age-related macular degeneration affects patients’ central vision.  Aside from injections, which help to slow changes with wet macular degeneration, no treatment exists to reverse changes due to macular degeneration. Preserving macular function is paramount for patients with dry and wet macular degeneration.

The Age Related Eye Disease Studies concluded vitamin supplementation of  lutein, zeaxanthin, vitamins C and E, zinc along with other ingredients help to slow down changes with macular degeneration. These supplements are available over-the-counter.

Common brand names include Ocuvite, PreserVision, and ICaps. Additionally, Advanced Eye Care Center is proud to offer Total Eye and Body Support (TEBS) at our front desk as a service to patients with age-related macular degeneration.
