Can Supplements Help With Preventing Macular Degeneration

image of supplements that may help in preventing macular degenerationAge-related macular degeneration (AMD) is the leading cause of adult blindness, it slowly robs people of their vision. Over the years, companies have made claims that Vitamin D, omega-3 fatty acids, and other supplements may help with preventing macular degeneration or vision loss. However, new research suggests that neither vitamin D nor omega-3s reduced the number of AMD cases. The findings were published in JAMA Ophthalmology.

While diet may not help with preventing macular degeneration, smokers are two to four times more likely to get AMD than non-smokers. So, quitting smoking may help prevent AMD.
