bilberry root and macular degeneration
I read once where they gave this to pilots that flew during the night as it also helps people that have night vision problems.
I have it, but don't take it and should. Specifically purchased it after I read the benifits of how it is supposed to be good for the eyes.
Hope this helps you out a bit.
There are quite a few promising studies involving diet or supplements.
If you've got any tips I'd LOVE to hear them because I don't have any suggestions to offer... all the doctors and specialists have said there's nothing that can help once the damage has been done. The vitamins and supplements are great at helping prevent, just not afterward. Figures, eh?
He gets along with his magnifying glass. He just takes it all slow. My mom reads the paper to him. He listens to the TV. Computer is a no-go for him though.
A serious scan of the environment for safety issues is needed when vision loss begins. Throw rugs, threshholds that are not flush with the floor (e.g., the transition area from a wood floor room to a carpeted one), end tables that are in the traffic pattern ... all of these things can prove hazardous.
Take a look at lighting - too much lighting on bright/reflective surfaces can produce glares that make things harder to see; too little lighting increases the hazard of tripping/falling/injury.
Also think placement of things that are used frequently. For example, if the telephone is in an out-of-the-way place or on the other side of an obstacle, move it so that it is convenient or buy extra extensions/handsets. Make sure that all of the frequently traveled paths (especially to the bathroom) are free and clear of obstacles.
