Division Road, Valparaiso, IN. This program will focus on certain foods for eye health and the importance of regular eye exams. It will explain how vision problems creep up slowly as you age. Dozens of studies on nutrition and age-related macular degeneration (AMD) point to a relationship between increased fruit and vegetable intake and a decrease in the risk of AMD.
