Omega-3 helps elderly vision

Omega-3 helps elderly vision

Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is the leading cause of permanent damage to vision in people over 65, and it’s due to get worse, with the number of people with AMD estimated to reach 2.95 million in 2020.

Unfortunately, there is no medical solution for AMD but in experiments on mice, Omega-3 essential fatty acid, found predominantly in oily fish, blocks the growth of blood vessels, which is a main cause of AMD.

Other research has also shown that higher intakes of Omega-3 fish oil can reduce the risk of AMD by up to 35%

Another excellent reason to keep eating three portions of oily fish a week or take a fish oil supplement if you don’t like oily fish!
