My OD said that I have the beginnings of MD.

Will get another OCT in 2 mos.

I took AREDS2 for a couple mos w/o any side effects. I was concerned about the total amt of Vits C/E, copper and zinc. Pharmacist checked it out for me and said that taking the MV that I was taking and AREDS 2 only put me 1.5 mg of Zinc over the upper limits. My OD said that I could take the Costco Trunature Vision Complex Lutein ( 25 mg) and Zeaxanthin ( 5 mg) instead.

Just read the NIH article posted by someone saying that AREDS2 was for intermediate/advanced MD.

Will check with Ophthalmologist ref AREDS next appt.
