Nutrition and the Eye
by Frank Eperjesi, Hannah Bartlett
Publisher: MDPI AG 2015

This topic is becoming increasingly important because of the ageing population in developed countries and because, for the most common blinding eye disease, dry age-related macular degeneration, prevention is important as there is no cure.
