[25/08/2016] Macular degeneration (AMD) natural treatment

Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is a condition which mainly occurs in older people. AMD causes problems with central and fine vision, but does not lead to total loss of sight and is not painful. AMD affects the vision we use when we are looking directly at something, for example when reading, looking at photos or watching television. 

AMD may make this central vision distorted or blurry and, over a period of time, it may cause a blank patch in the centre of the vision. To diagnose AMD you need to have your eyes examined by an ophthalmologist. This is done at the hospital once your optometrist or GP has referred you. 

There is some evidence that high doses of vitamin A, C, E and the minerals zinc and copper when taken together may help slow down the progression of dry AMD, particularly if someone already has changes to their vision because of AMD in one eye. 

There are a number of vitamin products available which have been designed for people with dry AMD and you can usually buy these over the counter from your pharmacist. Our company

Persavita, which targets age-related health changes, has marketed a natural supplement featuring the spice saffron. The nutritional supplement is based on research that suggests saffron may help protect against failing eyesight in age-related macular degeneration (AMD) – the most common cause of blindness in old people.

Persavita is pleased that OT has written about the product.
