EyeScience Launches Comprehensive Online Resource Devoted to Age-Related Macular Degeneration Education and Prevention

February 25, 2009

EyeScience Labs, a Columbus, Ohio-based, ocular nutraceutical company, has launched a new website called Eye Science to meet consumer demand for comprehensive information and education on age-related macular degeneration (AMD) in a unique watch-and-learn video format. AMD is a progressive, hereditary eye disease that is the leading cause of blindness in Americans age 50 or older.

On the site, visitors can learn about basic eye anatomy, screening and diagnosis, risk factors, signs and symptoms and treatments for AMD. In addition, the site contains more than 20 watch-and-learn videos about eye anatomy, AMD symptoms, dry and wet macular degeneration, diagnostic tests, photodynamic therapy (PDT), intravitreal injection of Lucentis and Avastin, vitamin therapy, amsler grid testing, lasers and more.

Visit the EyeScience website to learn more.

  • In addition to writing about SLT, as I have commented on that article, I have been extensively covering new developments in the Avastin vs. Lucentis controversy since I began my online Journal in December 2005.

    I have now published 24 postings on Avastin/Lucentis; 8 postings on the CATT Study (comparing the two drugs for wet AMD); and 3 updates on clinical trials and current research on AMD — both wet and dry.

    If you are interested, please open the link below to my online Journal and place “menu” in the search box in the upper left-hand corner to find all of the articles that have been posted on these subjects over the past several years.
