MacuShield®

Age Related Macular Degeneration

Abbreviated to AMD, Age Related Macular Degeneration is the leading cause of blindness in the UK.

There are two versions of AMD – wet and dry. Dry is the most common and most prevalent in people 50+.

AMD is the loss of central vision in the eye, so the patient only has peripheral vision remaining which limits their ability to complete certain activities.

 

The Causes

Dry AMD and the loss of sight is attributed to ‘drusen’ – yellow deposits – forming in the macula.

The exact causes of this are unknown, however, there are a number of known contributing factors.
These include: smoking, age and family history.
Putative causes include: diet, light, obesity, low macular pigment levels.

 

The Treatment

There are two angles to treatment – treatment and prevention.

Treatment is limited to injections into the eye on a regular basis to limit the build up of ‘drusen’ and to strengthen the Macula to remove the ‘drusen’. However, this is costly and time consuming, and therefore prevention is looked to.

 

MacuShield®

Supports and maintains eye health. It has been clinically tested by the Waterford Institute of Technology. It is widely recommended by Opticians and Ophthalmologists.

It contains:
10mg Meso-Zeaxanthin
10mg Lutein
2mg Zeaxanthin

Meso-Zeaxanthin is patented and only found in MacuShield®. Meso-Zeaxanthin is only found in the Macula, and nowhere else. A healthy Macula converts Lutein found from a diet into Meso-Zeaxanthin – however, new research suggests this conversion only happens in healthy eyes, therefore those with impaired eye health are unable to complete this conversion. In these cases, a need for Meso-Zeaxanthin has been demonstrated.

MacuShield® is specifically designed to support the Macula pigment.

 

Who should use it?

People over the age of 50 should take an eye health supplement to help support and maintain their eye health.

This should reduce the likelihood of failing eye health.

This accounts for approximately 32% of the population.

 

What is Available?

MacuShield® is available in packs of 30 and packs of 90.

The packs of 30 offer a 1 month supply, and the packs of 90 offer a 3 month supply.
