For people who start losing their vision to macular degeneration, the prospect of impending blindness is frightening and terribly depressing. They often get contradictory advice about surgery, medical treatments, natural supplements and lifestyle changes that might arrest or reverse the condition - and these conflicting recommendations only compound their anxiety.

This book casts the spotlight on macular degeneration and dispels the myths surrounding this disease. MACULAR DEGENERATION offers a wealth of insights into what macular degeneration is, what causes it and the array of contemporary treatment options.

Inside readers will learn: Lifestyle and environmental factors that can affect your risk of developing age-related macular degeneration (AMD)

Dietary strategies to prevent or slow the progression of macular degeneration

Nutritional supplements that work

The difference between dry AMD and wet AMD

When surgery is the best option

How to choose an eye care professional (or know that you've chosen the right one)

How to deal with the stress of vision loss to macular degeneration

Written for patients and those who love and care for them - MACULAR DEGENERATION presents a clear picture of this illness and how best to address it.
