New Medical Study Establishes First-Ever Long-Term Benefits for Macular Degeneration Sufferers Using Macular Health Vitamin Supplement

Eye disease product has the potential to preserve vision for millions

BIRMINGHAM, Ala., April 28 /PRNewswire/ -- As many as 17.8 million people will suffer from age-related macular degeneration (AMD) by 2050 and 1.57 million will be blind from the disease, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Phase II measured the vision function of the same patients two years later and found an average improvement in vision of 17 percent.

Mason, III, MD, researcher and retinal specialist at the Callahan Eye Foundation Hospital. "These new findings prove that Macular Health can slow vision loss and actually improve vision function over time."

MERG testing was used to gauge the vision of AMD patients before and after using the Macular Health supplement. The test results of patients taking Macular Health were compared to results of a control group that did not take the supplement. Phase II of the study was accepted by the Association for Research and Vision in Ophthalmology (ARVO) for poster presentation. Mason and a team of retina specialists will continue to
