Fortifeye Vitamins has followed all of the studies related to nutrition, DNA and Macular degeneration very closely.
They now have an entire line of genotype-directed supplements for macular degeneration.

The latest studies suggest that a percentage of the population with specific genotypes that have macular degeneration may actually be harmed by taking zinc yet some may benefit from taking zinc and antioxidants.
The only way to know whether zinc is good or bad is to have a genetic DNA test for macular degeneration . This is a simple in office DNA test to determine what particular type of genes an AMD patient has and will allow eye care providers to customize their nutritional regiment to each patient. Genotype-directed nutritional therapy could result in significantly improved future outcomes for many patients with macular degeneration. DNA testing should become the gold standard now to help the eye care provider determine which supplement to take. Experts agree that no more than 40mg of zinc should be taken daily.
Fortifeye Vitamins has different formulas that can be recommended based on patients age, weight, disease entity and specific DNA. Eye Care providers all over the world are recommending Fortifeye.
