Hi all--My 69.5-yo mother was informed at a recent eye appointment that she has the beginning of macular degeneration.  I'm wondering about diet and vitamin recommendations, such as omega fatty acids and sources of antioxidants.  Thanks for any advice or recommendations.

My mother was also recently diagnosed with macular degeneration. Her doctor has her taking Ocuvite Preservision daily now.  She says it does help but it's expensive and she's supposed to take it indefinitely.
