May 1, 2016

SEATTLE — Patients with a higher level of dietary and supplementary calcium intake showed a lower incidence of progression of late age-related macular degeneration, according to a poster presentation here.

“The purpose of the study was to investigate whether increased calcium intake was associated with the progression of AMD. In AREDS, higher amounts of dietary and supplementary calcium intake lowers the incidence of late AMD,” Alanna K. Tisdale, MD, told Ocular Surgery News in an interview at the Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology meeting.
