HAMPTON, Va. - June 3, 2013 - PRLog -- Alan Wagner, MD, FACS, of Wagner Macula & Retina Center (WMRC) explains age-related macular degeneration (AMD) as “One of the most common causes of poor vision after the age of 60.” The recent Age Related Eye Disease Study (AREDS) shows that over the counter vitamins can play a role in preventing progression for patients that have certain eye conditions.  

In the study, patients with a high-risk of developing late stage macular degeneration were given vitamin supplements. Dr. Wagner summarizes the findings: “In this particular study, these vitamins have shown to reduce the impact by slowing the progression of AMD.”  The results showed a twenty five percent lowered risk in progression of advanced stage AMD.
