  1. Don’t smoke
  2. Eat plenty of dark, leafy green vegetables, such as spinach, kale or broccali
  3. Take a multivitamin/multimineral supplement unless advised otherwise
  4. If you already have AMD, ask us about one of the available dietary supplements such as Nutrof
  5. Eat oily fish or take a fish oil supplement – some of the AMD dietary supplements contain this
