Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is a disease affecting the macula. The macula is a tiny part of your eye’s retina that allows you to see detail clearly. The macula gives you central vision, so you can see someone’s face, your phone, or to see the hands on a clock.
The most common form of AMD is known as the “dry” form. Tiny yellow or white pieces of fatty protein called drusen often form under the retina. Eventually, the macula may become thinner and stop working properly. Dry AMD can eventually turn into “wet” AMD—a more severe form of this disease that can steal more vision.
Vision in people with AMD usually diminishes gradually, so they may not be aware of how much sight they have lost. That’s why they must use a special testing tool called an Amsler grid to check their eyesight every day. Using this grid is essential to finding any vision changes that are not obvious.
MacuHealth with LMZ3 is a unique and patented formulation specifically designed to rebuild and maximize macular pigment over a lifetime. Containing all three critical carotenoids in a patented 10:10:2 ratio, MacuHealth with LMZ3 is proven through peer-reviewed research to quickly and effectively rebuild macular pigment.
Exposure to high energy blue light increases oxidative stress on the retina, which over time can lead to Age Related Macular Degeneration (AMD). MacuHealth helps nature restore macular pigment to optimum levels, and may protect against AMD because of the anti-inflammatory and antioxidant nature of the three nutrients.

If you notice any areas of the grid that appear darker, wavy, blank or blurry, contact your ophthalmologist right away. He or she will check to see what’s going on with your AMD, and begin treatment if appropriate.
The Amsler grid is a simple square containing a grid pattern and a dot in the middle. This design, when used correctly, can show problem spots in your field of vision.
