Impaired vision affects millions of people worldwide. One of the most common forms of vision impairment is exhibited through age-related macular degeneration (AMD), but can also take the form of glaucoma or cataracts. Although it is difficult to know exactly how many people are affected by AMD worldwide, eye clinics and researchers estimate that 25 million people are in various stages of AMD.
Scientists have discovered several independent genetic variations that may play a role in whether someone develops AMD. It is estimated that genetic AMD accounts for almost 70% of all AMD related cases. These variations can be passed down from your family through variation and mutation of a series of genetic code that detail the makeup of your eye structure, functionality, and vulnerabilities.

Age is one of the more obvious causes of AMD. As we get older, our eyes take on more damage and are susceptible to various types of exposure that may be detrimental to us, such as UV light from the sun, and damage caused by free radicals. AMD is the result of gradual deterioration of light-sensing cells in the tissue at the back of the eye. An estimated 2% of people in their 50s suffer from AMD whereas an estimated 35% of people at the age of 75 do. Source
Diet and Lifestyle
Your eyes are extremely sensitive to external stimuli and as such are extremely vulnerable to damage. Free radical damage, very common with smoking cigarettes, is one of the leading contributors to eye damage. It is estimated that you could be more than four times more likely to get AMD if you are a regular smoker as opposed to never having smoked. Alcohol and a poor diet can also contribute to eye damage over time. Source

Vitamin A: Have you ever heard the saying carrots are good for your eyes? Well, the Vitamin A found in carrots and other Vitamin A-rich food sources helps to naturally support healthy eye function by assisting your cornea in producing its natural protective layers.
Zeaxanthin: Zeaxanthin, another key ingredient in the Lutenol formula, helps provide the eyeball with nutrients that help to protect the retina from light damages. Light and UV damage is one of the leading causes of AMD. Source
