At First Eye Care Bedford, we utilize a macular densitometer to measure the amount of pigment found within the macula. This is useful to help predict a patient’s risk factor for Age-related macular degeneration (AMD). Reduced pigment levels are often associated with patients that smoke, have light-colored eyes, a strong family history of AMD, cardiovascular disease, and obesity. We recommend the densitometer in conjunction with a nutritional supplement to get a quantitative measure of wither the treatment is helping.
MacuHealth with LMZ3 is a patented natural eye health supplement consisting of the three primary protective pigments found in the macula. This nutritional supplement that contains all three components found in the Macula: Lutein, Zeaxanthin and Meso-Zeaxanthin. Taking this one small, easy-to-swallow softgel once a day has been clinically proven to restore macular pigments to normal levels for enhanced vision and vision protection for those suffering with age-related macular degeneration.
