Lutein is fine for your condition. There are 2 types of mac. degeneration. The wet and the dry kind. You need to see a retinal specialist as they are the experts in macular degeneration. The wet type is treated with shots. I would see a retinal opthalmologist as soon as possible as loss of vision is common with macular degeneration.
