There is a study ongoing at the Waterford Institute of Technology investigating the effectiveness of various combinations of MultiVitamin and Mineral supplements to slow down the development of AMD- a gradual decline in central vision which can cause difficulty reading, driving and watching the television.
The study is based unsurprisingly in Waterford, which is a bit of a distance from our base in Cavan, but if you, or a friend or family member has recently been diagnosed with AMD, sometimes referred to “age changes at the back of the eyes”, and you might be interested in taking part, more details are available here. Anyone accepted for the trial will receive a supplement proven to help slow down the progression of these age changes, but unfortunately not in every person. The investigation is looking to see what other additional ingredients are more useful, and which are less (or not) useful.
Again, more information is available here.
