The Prevention and Treatment of Macular Degeneration

"Macular degeneration is a condition of the eyes causing symptoms of dark or blurry vision in the center of the eyes, seeing distortions of straight lines, and difficulty doing activities that require sharp vision (e.g., driving and reading). Dry macular degeneration is the most common type. It occurs when a substance called lipofuscin accumulates in the lining of the retina. A less common form is wet macular degeneration involving the abnormal growth of blood vessels in the eye. It can be treated successfully if caught early, otherwise can lead to blindness. It is suggested that free radical damage caused by sunlight, smoking and alcohol may contribute to the degeneration. High dose antioxidant supplementation can slow the progression of the disease."
