There is only a link to one supplement (animal based Omega-3's), a few additions to diet of high vitamin foods (lutein, Zeaxanthin, dark berries), and lower transfats...read the article. It's always good advice to lower your blood pressure (higher pressure in the vessels hurts smaller vessels, and if really high can even change your eyesight) and lower your insulin because high blood sugar damages the same vessels.

Its important for all adults to have their eyes checked every few years.

Being nearsighted and years of eating trans fats increased my risk. I had my eyes checked last year and it turned out I had increased air pressure. Thankfully, this was caught in time so now I take eye drops every night to reduce the pressure. Luckily my early stages was caught in time with no vision loss whatsoever.

Anyone with a family history of glaucoma should see an ophtholmologist every year for a complete dilated eye exam.

The laser surgery is a great fix...here's some info on the YAG laser, which I used to schedule when I was the surgical coordinator at an ophtholomolgist's office. Glaucoma Surgery | Glaucoma Research Foundation My mom has had the surgery on both eyes and her pressure is back to normal now and she doesn't need to use drops.
