Cognitive tests that rely on vision-dependent tasks may skew results for up to 25% of adults over 50 with undiagnosed visual problems such as AMD and cataracts. This may lead to a misdiagnosis of mild cognitive impairment in older adults.
A new study reports the dietary supplement Omega 3 does not slow cognitive decline in older people, especially if they already have preexisting cognitive problems.
Fluoxetine, the antidepressant commonly known as Prozac, may be beneficial for the treatment of age-related macular degeneration. Researchers found Prozac significantly slowed the rate at which people over 50 developed AMD.
Treatment with Humanin G reduced protein levels of inflammation markers that become elevated in age-related macular degeneration.
Researchers link microscopic spheres of calcium phosphate to the development of AMD.
Researchers investigate the link between cognitive function and levels of a vital eye pigment linked to diet.
A new study reveals a considerable link between three common eye diseases and an increased risk of developing Alzheimer's disease. Researchers believe their findings could help physicians better detect those at risk of developing dementia.
Age-related macular degeneration and lupus share a common contributor to inflammation. The findings could help researchers develop new treatments for those conditions, and other conditions associated with inflammation.
Eating a handful of dried goji berries five times a week may help delay or even prevent the onset of age-related macular degeneration. Over a 90 day period, those who ate goji berries had an increase in protective pigments in their eyes.
