    Vitamin C can reduce the risk of cataracts and macular degeneration. And Vitamin E combined with Vitamin C can reduce the risk of advanced AMD.

    Vitamins C and E are thought to protect the connective tissue, while vitamin E and omega-3 fatty acids are helpful in preventing and reducing macular degeneration. Vitamin C can promote healthy bones, skin and blood vessels, including the delicate capillaries in the retina. Studies suggest long-term consumption of vitamin C also may reduce the risk of forming a cataract and vision loss from macular degeneration.
