Blue light and UV radiation exposure are directly linked to Macular Degeneration.
In Macular Degeneration a small area in the retina breaks down causing your central vision to become blurred and distorted. In advanced cases it can lead to blindness. More than 1.2 million Americans are diagnosed with Macular Degeneration annually.
There is a direct link between nutrition and this disease. If clinical signs of the disease are discovered during an examination or if you are over 50 years old and have a parent with macular degeneration, nutritional supplements should be considered. These supplements help increase the pigment in the macula which protects against the damaging effects of blue light and UV radiation.
MacuHealth is one of the supplements that may help slow the progression as it contains the specific nutrients in the most clinically appropriate concentrations. MacuHealth is available in our office.
