Haven't heard anything about MSM, but did hear awhile back of the benefits of D3 for prevention of macular degeneration. Also, Carnosine in addition to the usual Lutein, etc.

I have known, for years, that NAC eyedrops can cure cataracts. Then I read that even the tablets can do that. I have a real problem with administering eye drops to me.


Now, I have read where NAC can help macular degeneration. At least it helps prevent it. http://www.life-enhancement.com/maga...vent-eye-aging


Here is an outstanding patent for:
Quote:
The invention is based on the discovery that GSH is important in the treatment of macular degeneration and that by increasing the amount of intracellular GSH in the body, macular degeneration can be effectively treated and even prevented. To this end, the invention provides a method for treating macular degeneration by administration of an effective amount of a GSH enhancing agent to a human in need of such treatment. Preferably, the GSH enhancing agent is a non-toxic water-soluble cysteine derivative, most advantageously N-acetylcysteine, although other such agents may also be used.

You can get NAC drops and tablets at any of your favorite online supplement vendors

I'm hesitant to put any drops in my eyes that aren't a simple solution, our sight is so precious I'd hate to lose mine foolishly. Good to know that you can use the pills instead, thanks for all the useful information.

Thanks guys. I am searching for my mom and just found something that supposedly stops it. Saffron extract, but I started on MSM capsules until I order the saffron
