There are a number of brand name vitamins that follow the AREDS macular degeneration study formula. Ocuvite Preservision and ICaps are some of them. They can be purchased at most drug stores, walmart and even online and contain all the correct amounts and types of ingredients that the AREDS study found to be helpful in patients who have dry macular degeneration.

Here is a link to a good webpage:

The best thing you can do is compare the online and brink-n-mortar store prices of these formulations that are known to contain the formula recommended by the AREDS study to the ones your doctor is trying to sell. It is important to make sure that the ones your MD is selling, as well as others, contains the ingredients from this very important AREDS study.

Does this makes sense to you? Is there anything else I can add to this topic or answer for you? If not, have a great day and best of luck to you.
