Lifestyle Recommendations to Prevent Macular Degeneration

by Alan McClain, Macular Degeneration Expert
September 15, 2017

Question: What lifestyle changes can help against macular degeneration?

Answer: An improved natural foods diet is essential, avoiding processed foods and including apricots, raspberries, blueberries, mixed nuts, oatmeal, coffee, green vegetables, chicken, turkey, and fish, and a B-complex vitamin daily with breakfast as well as an additional eye health supplement that has been proven to help the eyes.  “Organic” foods (“non-GMO”) are always best because they are grown without pesticides and avoid GMO (Genetically-Modified Organism) foods that have been genetically altered to tolerate chemicals currently used in the production of some major food groups.

Amber (or copper-tint) polarized polycarbonate sunglasses (with the plastic lenses) tagged as “100% UVA/UVB” should be worn whenever out in the sun, to positively block the harmful rays from the sun and sharpen the vision.  A wide-brim hat adds to protection.

Some daily exercise and quality daily rest, on a regular daily cycle, help to build better health and better vision.
