    Of course! If you do not eat, you stop being able to see. Technically, you
    die.

    I would hope so, at least slowed very much.

    Interesting that the link mentioned article mentions AREDS2. In the
    original AREDS study, zinc levels were 80 mg. Some researchers have
    put zinc into a bad light (found to be a component of drusen). So
    AREDS2 looks at the reduction of that level.

    Also, vitamin D seems to be a factor in preventing vision loss, but
    this is not in any of the AREDS2 studies, as far as I know.

    Also^2, the article does not mention cardiovascular health, for some
    reason. I believe to be just as much of a factor in vision health as
    vitamins. (When was the last time your ophthalmologist suggested
    jogging/walking?).

    Good luck.

    Umm yes, if you didn't eat you would go blind.

    But you would die first!

  5. Umm, theoretically yes -- if you didn't eat you would go blind.

    But you would die first, so we will never know!
