The AREDS study found that high-dose antioxidant vitamins and minerals (vitamins C and E, beta carotene, zinc, and copper), taken by mouth, reduced the risk of progression to advanced AMD by 25 percent, and the risk of moderate vision loss by 19 percent

Medical Information
How is AMD treated? Treatment can delay and possibly prevent intermediate AMD from progressing to the advanced stage, in which vision loss occurs.  The National Eye Institute’s Age-Related Eye Disease Study (AREDS) found that taking a specific high-dose formulation of antioxidants and zinc significantly reduces the risk of advanced AMD and its associated vision loss.  Slowing AMD’s progression from the intermediate stage to the advanced stage will save the vision of many people.
