DNA double-helix molecule
Feb 14, 2012
Extensive epidemiologic and genetic analyses have lead to the conclusion that AMD, like many other chronic age-related diseases, results from the interplay of multiple environmental and genetic factors, which in combination account for development of the phenotype. The condition is strongly age-related, and tobacco smoking is the most consistent...

fundus autofluorescence
Sep 20, 2010
Information gathered from the peripheral retina may be important for the diagnosis and management of retinal disease. In a retrospective analysis of patients referred to an imaging center for retinal imaging who agreed to have wide-field autofluorescence using Optos' ultra-widefield retina imaging, 76% had abnormalities in the peripheral...

AREDS2
Jun 27, 2010
The National Eye Institute at the U.S. National Institutes of Health has launched an ancillary study to its Age-Related Eye Disease Study 2 comparing the ability of Notal Vision's ForeseeHome age-related macular degeneration monitor to aid the early detection of wet AMD to that of standard care, according to a joint press release from the...

National Institutes of Health researchers looking at data from the Age-Related Eye Disease Study 2 (AREDS2) of more than 4,200 seniors found that those reporting the highest intake of omega-3 fatty acids had the lowest reported rating of AMD severity. Fish oil is rich in omega-3 long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids (LCPUFA). Docosahexaenoic...

AREDS2
Apr 12, 2010
Bausch + Lomb announces the U.S. launch of PreserVision Eye Vitamin and Mineral Supplement AREDS 2 formula. This builds on the original, clinically proven Age-Related Eye Disease Study (AREDS) formula, replacing beta-carotene with lutein (10mg) and zeaxanthin (2mg) and adding omega-3 fatty acids (1000 mg) per daily dosage. The product will be on...

Dry Macular Degeneration
Sep 17, 2009
A new report from the AREDS study group finds that the onset of central GA after the diagnosis of any GA was 2.5 years. Geographic atrophy (GA) represents the end-stage of dry age-related macular degeneration (AMD). Despite the recent breakthrough by anti–VEGF therapy for the active neovascular form, there is still no proven treatment to...

Fish oil
Sep 17, 2009
Using data from the AREDS study, researchers find that consuming a diet rich in docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) - one of the active ingredients in fish oil - decreases the risk of progression of early age-related macular degeneration (AMD). Fish oil is rich in omega-3 long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids (LCPUFA). Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), the...

Vegetables are good for maintaining eye health
May 21, 2009
Using data from the AREDS study, researchers find that a low glycemic index diet rich in vitamins C and E, zinc, docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), and lutein/zeaxanthin was associated with a lower risk of early and late age-related macular degeneration. Foods provide many nutrients that may interact to modify risk for...

Macular degeneration
Apr 23, 2009
AREDS investigators have constructed a statistical model using known genetic, demographic and environmental risk factors that is able to accurately predict the progression to advanced AMD with 81.3% certainty. Knowledge about genetic and epidemiologic risk factors for age-related macular degeneration (AMD) has grown exponentially in recent...

Fruits such as mangos are rich in lutein
Mar 20, 2009
A study on mice finds that lutein decreases retinal cell damage during inflammation. Lutein is a carotenoid that is concentrated in the retina. It is found in green leafy vegetables such as spinach and kale, and is also found in egg yolks. It is thought that lutein may help protect the retina from oxidative stress (antioxidant effect) and...
