@ljmontgo – Thanks for letting us know about the bad link. It has been fixed but I will repeat it here – https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/dry-macular-degeneration/diagnosis-treatment/drc-20350381
Here is the section of the page with the information:
For people with intermediate or advanced disease, taking a high-dose formulation of antioxidant vitamins and minerals may help reduce the risk of vision loss. Research from the AREDS2 (Age-Related Eye Disease Study 2) shows benefit in a formulation that includes:
— 500 milligrams (mg) of vitamin C
— 400 international units (IU) of vitamin E
— 10 mg of lutein
— 2 mg of zeaxanthin
— 80 mg of zinc (as zinc oxide)
— 2 mg of copper (as cupric oxide)
The evidence doesn't show benefit in these supplements for people with early-stage dry macular degeneration. Ask your doctor if taking supplements is right for you.
