Antioxidants are nutrients that protect cells from damage caused by free radicals—molecules associated with aging. Too many free radicals can cause eye disease, including advanced age-related macular degeneration (AMD). Antioxidants keep the creation of free radicals under control and help protect and repair cells damaged by them. The National Eye Institute recommends a diet high in antioxidants, plus vitamin and mineral supplements, for all people with, or at risk of developing, age-related macular degeneration.
