Can you recommend vitamin supplements?

Some research has shown that taking supplements with specific quantities of the vitamins C, E, lutein, zeaxanthin, zinc and copper oxide can help to slow down the progression of an eye condition called AMD (age-related macular degeneration) for some people.

Please note RNIB cannot recommend individual brands of vitamins or eye health supplements.
