Analysis Shows Genetics May Impact Response to Oral Supplements for Macular Degeneration
clear

A recent article in Ophthalmology, the most widely-cited eye care scientific journal, reinforces the hypothesis that the genetics of individuals with age-related macular degeneration (AMD) have a major impact on the response to nutritional supplements.  Written by Dr. Carl Awh and colleagues, the published article compares the disease's progression in response to zinc and antioxidant therapies for those who carry certain genetic markers (genotype groups).

"I so appreciate this entire team - I've seen Drs Wallace and Schneider - couldn't have had better care for my retinal detachment. As a nurse, I love that I am asked to confirm my DOB with each encounter. It is clear this has been hard-wired into your workflow. Everyone is friendly and professional."
