If you are over 50 you should begin by seeing an eye doctor. An ophthalmologist is the best choice for your evaluation. The doctor will look into the back of your eye to see if there is evidence of drusen. Even if there are no drusen, many eye doctors recommend starting a program involving dietary supplements. If there is a family history of AMD, you should begin supplements. In addition you should begin supplements even before the age of 50 if you have a diet that is lacking in the items listed previously.
