AREDs Vitamins

AREDS or Age-Related Eye Disease Study is a National Institute of Health ongoing study evaluating the role of vitamins in preventing macular degeneration and other eye related conditions. The AREDS formula as it has come to be known includes such micronutrients as vitamins A, C, and E. The study has shown that in particular forms of macular degeneration the combination vitamins can help reduce the risk of progression to advanced forms of AMD and/or loss of vision.
