Education is the first step in fighting Age-related Macular Degeneration.  Another vital step is ensuring that every possible tool is made available to the eye care professional to assist them in helping their patients.  NoMoreAMD.com is proud to make available to the Eye Care Community, the AMD patient and those at risk for AMD, a superior eye supplement called MacuHealth®.   With over 20 million doses safely consumed worldwide, MacuHealth contains the critical nutrient, meso-zeaxanthin, crucial for rebuilding and maintaining healthy macular pigment levels.  Low macular pigment is a major risk factor for Age-related Macular Degeneration.  Studies show that Meso-zeaxanthin, a member of the carotenoid family of pigments, plays a pivotal role in protecting the macula from oxidative damage that leads to tissue damage in the retina.

Dr. Michael Tolentino, MD- Retina Specialist

I would like to preface this letter by saying that I have no financial, intellectual or emotional conflicts of interest with the science that I will be summarizing in this letter. My main motivation in writing this letter is not to sell or market vitamins, or tout my invention or even describe my own experimental work.  My main motivation is to summarize the evidence that points to the importance of Meso-Zeaxanthin as the critical nutrient for the protection of the macula from the corrosive effects of age and light induced oxidation(rust) which underlies the pathophysiology of age related macular degeneration the leading cause of visual impairment in our aging population.   In addition, it is my strong hopes that patients will take a pro-active interest in protecting against AMD starting with taking the one soft gel per day in the Macuhealth Formula or like ocular supplements.
