AREDS 2 (Age Related Eye Disease Study) is an important five-year clinical study that demonstrated positive results for dietary zeaxanthin and lutein in terms of reducing the progression to advanced AMD in study subjects when added to the original AREDS vitamin formula. The AREDS 2 clinical trial results were announced at the Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology (ARVO) meeting in Seattle and published in the May issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA). 

Dr. Emily Chew , Deputy Clinical Director at the NEI and Deputy Director of the NEI Division of Epidemiology and Clinical Applications stated, "The addition of lutein and zeaxanthin to the AREDS vitamin formulation demonstrated a 10% decrease in the progression to advanced AMD."   Further, study subjects in the lowest quintile of dietary zeaxanthin and lutein intake achieved an impressive 26% reduction in progression to advanced AMD.

The original AREDS Study results were released in 2001, and revealed that high-dose antioxidant vitamin and mineral supplementation of Vitamin C, E, Beta-Carotene, Zinc, and Copper reduced the risk of progression to advanced AMD by 25 percent and the risk of moderate vision loss by 19 percent.
