The role of macular carotenoids in AMD and visual performance
This lecture will advise the eye care professional how visual function can be improved by enriching the macular pigments using targeted nutrition. The session will also demonstrate the importance of measuring contrast sensitivity when assessing visual function. The presenter will describe the current prevalence of ocular diseases specific to the retina, and describe the challenges relating to retinal ocular disease for our growing and ageing population. The impact of retinal ocular disease on visual function and the potential for targeted macular nutrition will be summarised.
Practitioners will be able to advise patients about the role of nutrition in retinal disease
Practitioners will recognise the role of nutrition in retinal disease.
