Macular Degeneration
200,000 people in the United States are diagnosed every year with Age-related macular degeneration (AMD.) It is a chronic condition that causes central vision loss that effects more than 30 million people today.

» It’s a leading cause of blindness in adults age 60 or older.
» It occurs when the macula, the part of the retina that lets you see the color and fine detail, becomes damaged.
» It is connected to “blue light” and UV light exposure and early detection is key to avoiding vision loss.
» OCT testing is the only current means for early detection which we offer here at San Clemente Optometry.

 
The macula is responsible for crisp, straight-ahead vision tasks, such as reading, driving, and face recognition.

Risk Factors:
» High blood pressure
» High cholesterol
» Obesity
» Smoking
» Low levels of vitamins A & C
» Low levels of vitamins E
» Fatty diet
» Myopia
» Sun exposure
» Cardiovascular Disease
» Certain Medications
» Light Pigmentation
» Light Colored Eyes
» Age
» Family History
» Females

Dr. Nota recommends and makes available MacuHealth with LMZ3 as a supplement for patients who
have Macular Degeneration and for patients who have signs of Pre-Macular Degeneration.

Your macula has an important and naturally occurring protective substance known as macular pigmen (MP). The MP is made up of several carotenoids: Lutein, Zeaxanthin and Meso-Zeaxanthin 
San Clemente Optometry 
The MacuHealth formula combines powerful antioxidants to help protect tissues against the potentially damaging effect of blue light and free radicals and is designed specifically to support macular health.

Recent studies have proven that Meso-Zeaxanthin, if taken in a supplement such as MacuHealth with LMZ3, effectively increases macular pigment levels and, in some cases, even restores macular pigment to normal levels.

Macular Degeneration can come on suddenly or gradually over time and it can progress quickly.
Regular eye exams with OCT testing are the best defense to this very debilitating eye disease.
