AMD, nutrition and the use in optometry practice

Øygunn Aass Utheim & Svein Tindlund

In this discussion, ophthalmologist Øygunn Aass Utheim and optometrist Svein Tindlund continue from the talk with ophthalmologist Marko Lukic about the role of AREDS studies in care of patients with dry AMD.

Øygunn and Svein specifically discuss the use of nutritional supplements with AMD patients and what optometrists need to be aware of when advising supplements – e.g. risk factors and side effects.
