MP - eye
Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is the most common form of macular disease, affecting over 600,000 people in the UK. It occurs when the macular at the back of the eye becomes damaged. Age, genetics, poor diet and smoking are all contributory factors.
Macular pigment density has been linked to many of the key risk factors for AMD. These naturally protect your retina by absorbing dangerous high energy visible (violet-blue) light and acting as antioxidants.
