Age-related Macular Degeneration (AMD) is a progressive eye condition that impacts central vision and is a leading cause of blindness in adults 50 years of age and older. Early-stage AMD often does not present any symptoms or changes in vision, as symptoms usually appear gradually over time. This progressive condition can impact one or both eyes, causing people to have difficulty with every day activities like driving, reading or recognizing the faces of loved ones. two  

About the AREDS, AREDS2 and 10-Year Follow-on AREDS2 Study Results
The AREDS and AREDS2 studies are landmark medical studies conducted over 20 years by the NEI. The particular AREDS study in 2001 demonstrated that will taking a specific combination of antioxidants and zinc could help reduce the risk of progression of ADVANCED MICRO DEVICES in those with moderate in order to advanced AMD. In 2012, the NEI completed the particular AREDS2 research, which tested several changes to the formulation, such as adding omega-3 fatty acids, substituting lutein plus zeaxanthin for beta-carotene, and/or reducing zinc. The present AREDS2 nutritional formula recommended by the NEI is the result of this study.

Consisting of 3, 883 people (6, 351 study eyes) with moderate to advanced ADVANCED MICRO DEVICES over the 10-year period, the follow-on study further validates the particular original findings of the AREDS2 formula with lutein and zeaxanthin, demonstrating an incremental reduction in danger of the particular progression in order to late-stage AMD. 1
