Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD) is a leading cause of vision loss in adults. Its effects may be permanent and irreversible, and only in some cases effectively treated. When detected early, AMD is best managed through life style changes, improved nutrition, and careful monitoring by your doctor.
We also conduct the QuantifEye exam, a light response test, to determine your baseline macular pigment optical density (MPOD), an important AMD risk factor. We like to screen all patients 21 years and older and track changes over time.
Visual Performance Challenges may be related to low MPOD. Zeaxanthin and lutein supplementation has been scientifically demonstrated to aid in the prevention of AMD and improve MPOD and visual performance such as improved night driving, diminished glare discomfort, less visual fatigue, less sensitivity to bright light, improved near and distant vision, and better contrast enhancement. We recommend EyePromise supplements as they are science-based, proven, all natural, and contain the highest level of dietary zeaxanthin and other ingredients crucial for healthy vision.
