In brief: Only reduce risks

If you are at risk for macular degeneration we generally recommend the following: no smoking, control blood pressure, eat lots of pigmented vegetables and fruits, luetin and omega-3 supplements, wear sunglasses and get regular eye exams.

In brief: Possibly

Modifiable risk factors like smoking cessation and lower sun exposure may also help prevent loss of vision from amd. This is one of the most exciting areas of eye research today. Stay tuned.
