Macular Degeneration Books
There are literally dozens of Macular degeneration books, from the very technical to the very easy read.
These are three I recommend.
See Again!: Reversing and Preventing Macular Degeneration by Alexander M. Eaton, M.D.
I found this macular degeneration book to be very informative, especially on the use of foods and nutritional supplements to obtain the necessary dietary antioxidants for good eye health.
Dr. Eaton discusses the anatomy of the eye, followed by a description of both types of macular degeneration.
A discussion of Free Radicals and antioxidants follows, including the ones most effective for treating MD.
Then he gives information about how foods can help you prevent the development of MD or slow the deterioration caused by it.
After discussions about the nutritional supplements you need, the bad habits to drop and the good habits to get into, he provides dozens of recipes that use the foods he describes earlier in the book.
Although the subtitle of this book — Reversing and Preventing Macular Degeneration — is somewhat misleading (MD symptoms can't be reversed; they can, however, be slowed or even halted), overall I found it very valuable.
I will be using the information from this book for a long time.
Living Well With Macular Degeneration: Practical Tips and Essential Information by Dr. Bruce P. Rosenthal and Kate Kelly
Another good book that has earned high praise at Amazon.com.
Information on how to live well, not just cope, with MD.
The focus of this macular degeneration book is different from See Again!'s.
While there is information on current research, and information on how to reduce the effects of MD (including good nutrition and quitting smoking), much of the book is about making your life easier if you already have MD.
There is information about finding low vision centers, which have the products and the expertise to help you live a more independent life.
There is also a list of organizations and other resources to help you.
As I mentioned above, this book is very popular on Amazon.
If you already have a form of MD, pick up this book.
Healing the Eye the Natural Way: Alternate Medicine and Macular Degeneration by Edward C. Kondrot, M.D.
Dr. Kondrot is a homeopathic doctor as well as an ophthalmologist.
His book is about using herbal and homeopathic remedies to heal Macular Degeneration.
