Nutrition for Your Eyes
Have Macular Degeneration? At Eyes On Missouri we may prescribe OcuClear Eye Vitamins to patients with Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD). According to the Nation Eye Institute, the results of the Age-Related Eye Disease Study (AREDS) clearly show that people who should consider taking the combination of antioxidants plus zinc include those who are at risk for developing advanced Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD).
The patients at risk are defined as:
- Having either intermediate AMD in one or both eyes (many medium-sized drusen or one or more large drusen)
- Advanced AMD in one eye, but not the other eye (a breakdown of light-sensitive cells and supporting tissue in the central retinal area)
- The development of abnormal and fragile blood vessels under the retina (wet form) that can leak fluid or blood
If you fall into one of these categories, OcuClear may be recommended by your eye care professional.
OcuClear is manufactured by Thorne Research, who for more than 25 years has been the standard by which companies in the industry are judged for product purity. OcuClear is made with the rawest of materials – no impure additives – and is designed so your body can best absorb the active nutrients it needs.
