Another important vision issue is age-related macular degeneration (AMD/ARMD); however, there are supplements containing zinc, selenium and lutein that seem to have helped some people overcome, or at least slow, AMD. These same supplements might also help eye health in younger adults.

Besides prescription meds to aid eye health, there are doctors who practice homeopathic care.

My grandmother has macular degeneration and recently had a mild heart attack. She has had others before (even before the AMD started).
