Stargardt’s, Retinitis Pigmentosa, Cone-Rod dystrophy

Macular dystrophies are a group of rare inherited conditions that affect central vision in young individuals. There is currently no cure, yet there is still hope for slowing down the progression of the disease. Eyetas is especially formulated for counteracting photoreceptor damage, by repairing and regenerating retinal cells.

Omega 3 improved vision in Macular Dystrophies

The effect of Omega 3 on visual acuity in patients with Stargardt’s disease, Retinitis Pigmentosa and Cone dystrophy.

Georgiou, et al. 2016

Supportive Research

Red blood cell membrane and adipose tissue lipids were analysed as an indication of short-term and long-term dietary fatty acid in a family with autosomal dominant Stargatdt’s macular dystrophy. When adipose lipids were analysed, there was a significant inverse relationship between phenotypic severity and the level of eicosapentaenoic acid. When red blood cell lipids were analysed, there were significant inverse relationships between phenotypic severity and levels of eicosapentaenoic and docosahexanoic fatty acids.

The retinal outer nuclear layer is found reduced in patients with macular dystrophies. When mice models with Stargart’s disease were treated with Omega 3 the thickness of the retinal outer nuclear layer increased a considerable amount.
