Abstract Objective: To evaluate results of studies that have provided information regarding the effects of dietary supplementation on visual performance, development and progression of age-related macular degeneration (AMD), and risk for cataracts. Research design and methods: Studies with information about the effects of dietary supplementation were identified via PubMed searches that combined (in separate searches) the terms ‘supplement’ OR ‘supplementation’ OR ‘diet’ AND ‘cataract’ or… Expand
Optimising dietary modification for age-related macular degeneration (AMD)
TLDR
A body of research adds insights into dietary interventions within visually impaired groups, studies embedded may enrich dietary advice in the context of AMD, and ready meals were created as a novel intervention to improve diet in this population. Expand
Adherence to dietary guidelines and the 10-year cumulative incidence of visual impairment: the Blue Mountains Eye Study.
TLDR
Compliance to dietary guidelines was associated with a decreased long-term risk of visual impairment in this sample of Australians aged 65+ years. Expand
Antioxidant vitamins, minerals and cataract: current opinion
TLDR
It is not clear that antioxidant vitamins and minerals nor that healthy diets prevent the development and progression of cataract, and a combination of antioxidant vitamins such as vitamins C and E may have a synergistic effect onCataract prevention. Expand
The Pharmacological Effects of Lutein and Zeaxanthin on Visual Disorders and Cognition Diseases
TLDR
There are increasing evidences that L and Z may also improve normal ocular function by enhancing contrast sensitivity and by reducing glare disability, and the appropriate consumption quantities, the consumption safety of L, side effects and future research directions are discussed. Expand
The Role of Lutein in Eye-Related Disease
TLDR
The role of lutein and zeaxanthin in ameliorating light and oxygen damage, and preventing age-related cellular and tissue deterioration in the eye is discussed, and possible role of nutritional intervention in common ocular diseases that cause blindness is offered. Expand
Management of Ocular Diseases Using Lutein and Zeaxanthin: What Have We Learned from Experimental Animal Studies?
TLDR
In these animal models, lutein and zeaxanthin have been reported to have beneficial effects in protecting ocular tissues and cells against damage caused by different etiological factors, including prevention of phototoxic damage by absorption of blue light, reduction of oxidative stress through antioxidant activity and free radical scavenging, and their anti-inflammatory and antiangiogenic properties.

Macular Pigment Optical Density and Its Relationship with Refractive Status and Foveal Thickness in Chinese School-aged Children
TLDR
Macular pigment optical density was inversely related to MFT and positively related to CFT in Chinese school-age children with low-to-moderate myopia and showed no significant association with age, BMI, IOP, SE or foveal thickness. Expand
Long-term incidence of visual impairment in older persons: associated factors, burden and impacts
TLDR
The association between diet quality and the incidence of VI, and associations between VI and the subsequent use of support services, subsequent events of falls, fractures, depressive symptoms, and cognitive decline over the short(5 years) and long-terms (10+ years). Expand
Epimacular brachytherapy for wet AMD: current perspectives
TLDR
Epimacular brachytherapy (EMBT) seems to be a useful approach to be associated with current anti-vascular endothelial growth factor agents, presenting an acceptable efficacy and safety profile, however, the results of the clinical trials carried out to date are insufficient to justify extending routine use of EMBT for the treatment of wet AMD. Expand
Bioavailability of lutein/zeaxanthin isomers and macular pigment optical density response to macular carotenoid supplementation: A randomized double blind placebo controlled study
Purpose: To examine the bioavailability of Lutein (L) and Zeaxanthin isomers (Zi) concentrations in serum and changes in MPOD over 12 weeks macular carotenoids supplementation in healthy youngExpand

Age-related macular degeneration and antioxidant vitamins: recent findings
  • E. Johnson
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Current opinion in clinical nutrition and metabolic care
  • 2010
TLDR
Findings on the association of certain antioxidants and docosahexaenoic acid support a role for nutrition in a decreased risk of AMD and the inconsistent findings of an increased risk with increased intake of β-carotene and vitamin E warrants continued investigation into these relationships. Expand
Nutrition and the prevention of cataracts
TLDR
High doses of multivitamins, antioxidants, or lutein and zeaxanthin are unlikely to be of significant ophthalmic benefit to the general public, but these nutrients may help individuals exposed to high oxidative stress and those with poor nutrition. Expand
TOZAL Study: An open case control study of an oral antioxidant and omega-3 supplement for dry AMD
TLDR
Treatment with this unique nutritional supplement increased VA above the expected baseline decrease in the majority of patients in this population with dry macular degeneration, and the results of the TOZAL study agree with the LAST and CARMIS studies and are predictive for positive visual acuity outcomes in the AREDS II trial. Expand
Dietary antioxidants and the long-term incidence of age-related macular degeneration: the Blue Mountains Eye Study.
TLDR
Higher dietary lutein and zeaxanthin intake reduced the risk of long-term incident AMD and confirmed the Age-Related Eye Disease Study finding of protective influences from zinc against AMD. Expand
Dietary intake of antioxidants and risk of age-related macular degeneration.
TLDR
In this study, a high dietary intake of beta carotene, vitamins C and E, and zinc was associated with a substantially reduced risk of AMD in elderly persons. Expand
A randomised controlled trial investigating the effect of lutein and antioxidant dietary supplementation on visual function in healthy eyes.
TLDR
There was no evidence of effect of 9 or 18 months of daily supplementation with a lutein-based nutritional supplement on visual function in this group of people with healthy eyes. Expand
Macular pigment: influences on visual acuity and visibility
TLDR
There is increasing evidence that the macular pigment (MP) carotenoids lutein (L) and zeaxanthin (Z) protect the retina and lens from age-related loss, and reports have suggested that L and Z supplementation are related to improved visual performance in normal subjects and patients with retinal and lenticular disease.

An ideal ocular nutritional supplement? *

TLDR
Vitamins C and E, and lutein/zeaxanthin should be included in the theoretically ideal ocular nutritional supplement, suitable for those with a family history of glaucoma, cataract, or age‐related macular disease, or lifestyle factors predisposing onset of these conditions, such as smoking, poor nutritional status, or high levels of sunlight exposure. Expand
Vitamin E supplementation and macular degeneration: randomised controlled trial
TLDR
Daily supplement with vitamin E supplement does not prevent the development or progression of early or later stages of age related macular degeneration. Expand
The Linxian cataract studies. Two nutrition intervention trials.
TLDR
Findings from the two trials suggest that vitamin/mineral supplements may decrease the risk of nuclear cataract. Expand
