In 2001, a large clinical trial was undertaken called the “Age-Related Eye Disease Study” (AREDS). This found that high levels of anti-oxidants and zinc significantly reduced the risk of Age related macular degeneration (AMD) and it’s associated vision loss.

Specially prepared vitamin and nutrient supplements (using the AREDS formula, or very similar) are increasingly used by people suffering the early stages of AMD and those with family history of the disease.
