    Yes, it is true that fish oil is really good for your macular degeneration because of the containing vitamin E which owns the role of antioxidation. The pathological mechanism of macular degeneration is mainly the aging change for the performance of the retinal pigment epithelium cells for the macular area structure. The outside plate film ingests function declines. It is not the digest plate membrane residual in the body retention in the basement of the cells in the blade. The cells are influenced and form a glass membrane. Thus, it leads to macular degeneration. It is mainly happened in the macular area and gets the long-term chronic light damage. You could use the fish oil in the food that you will eat which could help you absorb such nutrition directly. At the same time, it will be good for your macular degeneration.

    Yes, fish oil is good for macular degeneration because fish oil contains omega-3 fatty acids, which could protect against progression of advanced age-related macular degeneration. You can eat fish rich in omega-3 fatty acids such as salmon, mackerel and tuna two or more times a week. You can take an appropriate dosage of an omega-3 supplement each day under the guidance of your doctor.
