Birmingham, MI (PRWEB) February 03, 2014
February is National AMD/Low Vision Awareness Month and MacuHealth is proud to promote the Foundation Fighting Blindness. During February, MacuHealth will be helping to raise awareness of Age-Related Macular Degeneration via professional communications as well as in clinic materials for MacuHealth providers. The efforts also extend to social media. MacuHealth has committed to donating $1 to the Foundation Fighting Blindness for every ‘like’ logged on the MacuHealth Facebook page during February. The page is a social media platform with information for patients regarding AMD as well as a place for them to ask questions or share stories.
Age-Related Macular Degeneration is the most common cause of vision loss in those over the age of 50. The retinal disease causes a gradual loss of central vision. It can be diagnosed as either wet or dry and patients may first notice a blurring and distortion of their central vision. Risk factors for AMD can include age, family history, gender, race and poor diet.
While there is no available cure for AMD, according to numerous peer-reviewed studies, improved nutrition can be key in maintaining healthy eyesight. MacuHealth is a triple carotenoid eye supplement that has been researched by expert scientists and endorsed by leading eye care professionals worldwide. It is the sole supplement containing each of the three nutrients critical for macular health- lutein, meso-zeaxanthin and zeaxanthin. Additionally, MacuHealth has been shown to improve macular pigment and contrast sensitivity in subjects in just six months.
“I recommend MacuHealth to patients who are at risk of developing AMD or those suffering from the disease. The ultimate goal of supplementation is to mitigate the risk of the developing AMD and the sooner the proper risk analysis/exam is undertaken, the better the outcome. Patients who complain about driving difficulties or glare are also often great candidates for MacuHealth,” says Toronto-based optometrist, Dr. Kerry Salsberg.
