Macular Degeneration and Vitamin D

Dr. Kisling Eye Vitamins 1 Comment

The Fort Collins sunshine may be good for more than just a tan. A recent study indicated that vitamin D may offer some protective benefits against the development of macular degeneration. While UV damage ot the skin is a known hazard of sunlight, Dr.Michael Holick, a noted Dermatologist, has been an advocate of sensible sunlight exposure. Vitamin D deficiency has been implicated as a major factor in  17 types of cancer, heart disease, stroke, hypertension, autoimmune diseases, diabetes, depression, chronic pain, osteoarthritis, osteoporosis, muscle weakness, muscle wasting, birth defects, and periodontal disease. Everyday it becomes more clear that prevention of eye diseases  can be effected by proper eye nutrition from diet and supplements. At some point in the future, part of your visit to the Eye Care Doctor will be a nutritional analysis and plan to optimize your future ocular health.
