  • Patent number: 10918664
    Abstract: Risk of visual impairment including Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD) and cataracts increase with age. This increased risk can be caused by changes in the structure and function of the eye or changes in structures of the central nervous system that support visual perception. The present invention comprises fruit flavored, chewable formulations of supplements for reducing the risk of AMD. Chewable dosage forms of the invention are preferred over other formulations and may increase compliance in an aging population, who are more likely to require an eye health supplement and have an increased risk of experiencing dysphagia.
