How the heck did that happen???
Sure, your eyesight isn’t what it used to be… but you’ve kept your end of the bargain. You go for an exam every year like clockwork.
Then, one day, out of the blue you get the devastating news.
You don’t just have age-related macular degeneration.
You’ve got it BAD.
It’s already advanced along so rapidly your doc might have you believing you can count the days ’til the world goes dark.
You might THINK you drew the short straw and got a rare case of a disease that’s speeding along faster than a Formula One car.
Yes, you can think that… but new research shows you’d be wrong.
If you want to know why you’re about to go blind, don’t blame your eyes, your luck, or even a seemingly “bad” case of the disease.
Blame your doctor!
The new study shows the very folks you rely on to catch stuff like this early, when you can still do something about it, are practically blind themselves.
EYE DOCTORS aren’t spotting age-related macular degeneration.
Researchers pulled up the records of 644 older folks who had the eye exam no one looks forward to. You know the one. It’s the dilated eye exam — where they put the drops in your eyes that cause your pupils to pop open so wide you look like a dope fiend.
And since you can’t drive after, you need someone to bring you home… making this thing an even bigger pain in the butt.
So, the exam’s a hassle… and, it turns out, most docs are clueless about reading the results. The researchers reexamined all of those patients and found 1 in 4 were in the early stages of age-related macular degeneration.
And their doctors completely missed it!
Don’t let your own doc fall asleep at the wheel on you.
If you suspect something’s wrong… and he claims you’ve got nothing to worry about… don’t take his word for it.
Get a second opinion, ideally from a retina specialist. You shouldn’t HAVE to see a specialist for something basic like this, but the new study shows these guys are far better at spotting AMD early.
That’s exactly when you want this thing found, since early detection is the key to beating it back. Studies show a blend of lutein, zeaxanthin, and meso-zeaxanthin can slow or even STOP this disease in its tracks… but it works best if you take it early enough to make a difference.
You’ll find this trio at the heart of any decent eye protection formula.
If you have or are at risk for AMD, you don’t have to wait for a doc to make it official. Get started right now for maximum vision protection.
