According to the Harvard School of Medicine’s Women’s Health Study that emcompassed  39,876 women aged 45 or older for a 10 year period starting in 1993, women who ate more fish had a significantly lower risk of developing macular degeneration.

The Omega-3 fatty acids contained in fish (DHA & EPA), are known to maintain or improve choroidal  blood flow in the eye.

It was found that women who eat one or more servings of fish a week were 42% less likely to develop AMD than women who ate fish fewer than once a month. The most beneficial fish to eat included salmon, canned tuna, sardines, and dark-meat.

The conclusion of the research conducted was that eating fish regularly has been found to significantly reduce the risk of developing AMD.
