The Role of Nutrition in Age Related Macular Degeneration

There is growing evidence that by improving your diet, you may also improve the health of your eyes. Research has suggested an association between macular degeneration and a diet high in saturated fat (e.g. butter, cheese, animal fats). There is also evidence that eating fresh fruits and dark green, leafy vegetables – foods rich in vitamins C and E, selenium, and carotenoids (including beta-carotene, lutein and zeaxanthin) -- may delay or reduce the severity of AMD.
