AREDS and AREDS2 – Eye Supplements And Age-Related Eye Disease

Two of the most influential studies of the benefits of eye supplements are the AREDS and AREDS2 studies sponsored by the National Eye Institute. (AREDS is an acronym for “Age-Related Eye Disease Study.”)Each of these multicenter U.S. clinical trials enrolled several thousand participants and had a follow-up period of at least five years.

Results of the original AREDS were published in 2001 and showed that the antioxidant multivitamin used in the study reduced the risk of AMD progression to advanced stages among people at high risk of vision loss from macular degeneration by about 25 percent.
