Synopsis:
AMD is the most common etiology of vision loss in the US. AREDS 12 confirm that anti-oxidants and zinc can reduce the risk of progressing from Category 3 AMD to more serious vision loss by about 25.

However, based upon a landmark study published in Aug 2013 in the journal Ophthalmology, the presence or absence of high risk alleles in CFH and ARMS2 genes determines the most effective nutraceuticals for each patient.
