Each week, we will look to answer some of your most popular questions. If you have an eye-health or ophthalmology-related question you wish to have answered, please comment below and we’ll hope to have your response within future weeks.

Today, we have a eye-health related question to answer for you all.

Q: How can I protect myself against age-related macular degeneration?

A: Actually we have several relatively simple ways (we believe) in order to give yourself a fighting chance against macular degeneration.

  • First, quit smoking. Several studies have reported that smoking does increase your risk of developing macular degeneration, in addition to speeding up the progress by which it progresses.
  • Eat a healthy diet. Eating a diet rich in omega-3 foods, such as fish, have been reported to reduce the prevalence of macular degeneration.

Adhering to these two things can give a good fighting chance against AMD!
