Now that you’ve been diagnosed with macula degeneration, one of the first questions you’ll want answered is how to treat it? In the case of dry macula degeneration, it is likely you’ll be asked to take a vitamin supplement. This is because research has shown the use of such a supplement can reduce your risk of developing further vision loss due to your macular degeneration. However, it is important to realise that improvement in vision is not expected with the supplement and further loss of vision is still possible despite taking the supplement. Also, most benefit from from the supplement is seen in those with moderate or advanced dry macula degeneration. If your macula degeneration is early, the benefit of such a supplement is less certain.
