Omega-3 To Benefit Vision For Patients With Dry Macular Degeneration

An open case control study including oral antioxidant and omega-3 supplement for dry Age-Related Macular Degeneration found that 76.7% of subjects receiving the nutritional supplement demonstrated stabilization or improvement of Best Corrected Visual Acuity over a six-month period.

Francis E. Cangemi, MD, an ophthalmologist, published the results of the study, which treated patients with a unique supplement containing Taurine, Omega-3 Fatty Acids, Zinc, Antioxidant and Lutein over a six-month period, in the February 26, 2007 issue of BMC Opthalmology. Known as the TOZAL study, the results here far surpassed those found in the AREDS (Age-Related Eye Disease Study). The earlier study, sponsored by the National Eye Institute, first demonstrated that high levels of antioxidants and zinc reduced the risk of developing advanced AMD by approximately 25%.

The TOZAL study enrolled 37 mixed gender patients, with a mean age of 76.3 years and at least one eye diagnosed with dry AMD, at five independent study sites, with the subjects receiving standard care with the TOZAL formulation. Results were compared to a placebo cohort constructed from the literature that was matched for inclusion and exclusion criteria. Subjects gained an average of 0.0541 logMAR, or one-half of a line of visual acuity over the six-month period.
