Macular degeneration (AMD) is an eye disease that may get worse over time. It’s the leading cause of severe, permanent vision loss in people over age 60. It happens when the small central portion of your retina, called the macula, wears down. The retina is the light-sensing nerve tissue at the back of your eye. Because the disease happens as you get older, it’s often called age-related macular degeneration. It usually doesn’t cause blindness but may cause severe vision problems.
Diet is often one of the most overlooked aspects in preventing disease, and especially in any recovery or rehabilitation process. A poor diet provides inadequate nutrition for our bodies to function optimally and fight off disease. Inflammation also plays a major role in what a person consumes on a daily basis. We strongly encourage our patients to follow our EYELOVE Nutrition Guide recommendations to assist with their vision restoration healing process. We promote the consumption of fresh, organic fruits and vegetables, organic juices, nuts, wild fish and our polarized water products Watt-ahh®.
