My 85 year old mother has advanced macular degeneration. One eye is “wet”, the other “dry”. Is there anything that could help her?

Great question! Wet type is more debilitating and may require more aggressive treatments to stop the leaking, you should definitely first check with her practitioner on what her best option is. One of our recommended partners, Iceland Health, carries a product called Omega Vision Defense, which supports macular health and follows AREDS recommendations and includes Bilberry, Blueberry and Grape Skin extracts to support macular health. We cannot reverse the degeneration but it can help support overall eye health.
