Dry age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is an eye condition that causes your central vision to become blurry. There’s currently no cure for dry AMD, but following your treatment plan and practicing healthy habits may help prevent or slow the condition’s progression.
Your doctor may encourage you to eat more nutrient-rich foods and take nutritional supplements to help slow the progression of dry AMD. Specific nutrients may be particularly essential for your eye health. These include beta-carotene, lutein, zeaxanthin, copper, folate, magnesium, vitamin A, vitamin B3 (niacin), vitamin B6, vitamin C, and omega-3 fatty acids.
Limiting saturated fats, added sugars, and alcohol may also help protect your eyes.
