Vitamins E, C No Help Against Macular Degeneration

Taking vitamins E and C may do nothing to protect aging eyes from macular degeneration, in the longest-running one to test vitamin E for eyesight in men, and the first to test vitamin C alone.

According to researchers of Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School in Boston, the findings offer no evidence to support taking vitamins E and C to ward off vision problems. The report published in Ophthalmology, is part of an ongoing study of more than 14,000 U.S male doctors age 50 and older. The men were either taking both vitamins, only one of them, or neither.

After 8 years, 193 men had developed macular degeneration that was serious enough to interfere with their vision, but the risk was nearly identical among vitamin and placebo users.
