QUESTION 1 FOR EYE VITAMINS

HAVE YOU EVER BEEN A REGULAR SMOKER, EVEN IF IT WAS YEARS AGO?

YES

NO



High levels of antioxidants and zinc significantly reduce the risk of advanced age-related macular degeneration (AMD) by about 25 percent. These same nutrients also reduce the risk of vision loss caused by advanced AMD by about 19 percent. They have no significant effect on the development or progression of cataract.

These results are from the Age-Related Eye Disease Study (AREDS), a major clinical trial sponsored by the National Eye Institute, one of the Federal government's National Institutes of Health. The nutrients are not a cure for AMD, nor will they restore vision already lost from the disease. However, they may play a key role in helping people at high risk for developing advanced AMD keep their vision.
