Prevention of Macular Degeneration
Macular degeneration is the leading cause of blindness in the developed countries. The disease affects the central vision that we use to see details.
The cause of macular degeneration is unknown but many risk factors have been identified. Low macular protective pigment, family history, smoking and age are major risk factors.
The Macular Densitometer can accuractely evaluate the density of the macular protective pigment, the primary risk factor.
If the density of the macular protective pigment is low, increasing the ingestion of carotenoids can aid the body in building that protective pigment layer back up. The Waterford Institute of Technology in Ireland has studied the many formulations of macular pigment eye products and found MacuHealth to be the most affective formulation.
In addition to wearing UV protection, not smoking and eating a healthy diet we also recommend MacuHealth for the prevention of macular degeneration.
