More than 10 million Americans suffer from age-related macular degeneration (AMD)—many unable to drive, read, or recognize their children’s faces. AMD is the leading cause of blindness in people over age 60, and we don’t yet have a cure. But it is possible to protect yourself—and it’s never too early to start.

Research shows that a diet rich in good nutrients for eye health (such as beta-carotene, lutein, omega-3 fatty acids, and vitamin C) may delay the onset and progression of AMD. EAT RIGHT FOR YOUR SIGHTa collaboration between the American Macular Degeneration Foundation, cookbook author Jennifer Trainer Thompson, and noted ophthalmologist Dr. Johanna M. Seddon—harnesses the power of these key nutrients with 85 inspiring, creative recipes for every meal.

Set in large, accessible print, Eat Right for Your Sight is an invaluable resource for anyone concerned about their eyesight. Guarding your eye health is easier—and tastier—than ever!
