February Is Age-related Macular Degeneration (AMD) Month - Take a Look at Square One's Top Title on this Topic

Posted: 2020/02/10

Garden City Park, NY: In view of this month being National AMD (Age-related Macular Degeneration) Awareness Month, Square One wants everyone to get a good look at their top title on this increasingly important topic (especially for Baby Boomers).

It turns out that Age-related Macular Degeneration—AMDremains the most common cause of vision loss in people over the age of fifty. Yet for many years, the only treatment offered to most people diagnosed with AMD has been a supplement formula that can slow the progression of macular degeneration, but cannot prevent, stop, or reverse AMD and offers no help to those in the earliest stages of the disease. Now, for the first time, is a comprehensive program for the treatment of this all-too-common disorder.

Written by optometrist and bestselling author Jeffrey Anshel together with medical researcher Laura Stevens, who herself has AMD, What You Must Know About Age-related Macular Degeneration ($17.95 USD, ISBN: 9780757004490) is a book whose time has come.

The book is divided into four parts. Part One explains how the eye works and how AMD develops, in both its wet and its dry forms. It then looks at the most common risk factors and explains how each of these factors negatively affects the eye.

In Part Two, the authors look at the specific nutrients that offer protection to the eye. Included is the AREDS supplement—the over-the-counter formula now widely used to treat AMD—as well as many other nutritional supplements that have been scientifically proven to support eye health and combat AMD.

Part Three explains which foods contribute to eye health and which can actually damage your vision. Most important, it guides you in putting this knowledge into action with the easy-to-follow Anti-AMD Diet.

Finally, Part Four recommends simple lifestyle changes you can make to maintain or restore eye health, and then offers a wide range of tools and techniques for living successfully with macular degeneration.

In addition to writing this book with Ms. Stevens (whose next book with Square One will be the hotly-anticipated What You Must Know About Strokes co-written by Amytis Dowfighi, MD), Dr. Jeffrey Anshel is also the bestselling author of Smart Medicine for Your Eyes; What You Must Know About Food & Supplements for Optimal Vision Care; and, most recently, What You Must Know About Dry Eye.

What You Must Know About Age-related Macular Degeneration (ISBN: 9780757004490) is now available wherever books are sold.
