This podcast series from the Academy's Committee on Aging features leading experts who discuss clinical experiences and the differences in caring for older adults.
In today's podcast, Dr. Neil Bressler leads a discussion on the use of dietary supplements to prevent progression of advanced age-related macular degeneration (AMD). When is the original AREDS formulation indicated and in which patients should the new AREDS 2 formulation be used? Is there adequate evidence to support this distinction, and how should patients be advised?
