A study of 67 people with early age-related macular degeneration, a leading causes of vision loss, has found that supplements can provide significant improvement if taken consistently. The researchers, who published their findings in the journal Eye, tested different dosage combinations of three eye nutrients concentrated in the retina: lutein (3-20 mg), zeaxanthin (0.86-2 mg), and meso-zeaxanthin (0-17 mg). All of the nutrients produced benefits over a period of three years; however, the most effective strategy involved taking all three together on a consistent basis.
