The macula is a small spot in the centre of the retina that processes sharp, clear, central vision. When you look directly at something, light is focused on the macula, allowing you to see detail and colour. Reading, driving, watching television, recognizing faces – all of these abilities are dependent on a healthy macula.
The Age Related Eye Disease Study (AREDS) is the extensive research study conducted by the National Eye Institute in the United States, which examined the role of nutritional supplementation in macular eye health. In 2013, the results of the updated AREDS 2 research were published after several years of comprehensive clinical trials, involving more than 4200 participants. AREDS 2 results indicated that antioxidant nutrients and Zinc, together with Lutein and Zeaxanthin, may help defend against free radical damage to the macular region and help support the protective macular pigment of the retina.
