Macular Degeneration (AMD) | Austin, TX

Age Related Macular Degeneration (AMD) is a degenerative disease of the retina that affects one’s ability to see in the center of their visual field. It typically affects people over 50 and significantly changes their quality of life by limiting the ability to see fine detail, read, drive or recognize facial features.

Results released by the Age-Related Eye Disease Study (AREDS), a major clinical trial sponsored by the National Eye Institute, indicates that high levels of antioxidants and zinc significantly reduce the risk of advanced AMD and its associated vision loss. In response to this, Dr. Harper created a simple treatment solution called Sight Defense MV (Sight Defense + multivitamin). This product provides a high quality daily multivitamin, along with the AREDs recommended nutrients.

In addition, Dr. Harper follows the latest science related to AMD, adding nutritional ingredients to her formulation as new clinical studies prove their safety and efficacy with AMD.
