Blue Light, Alzheimers and Eye Disease.

 

Blue Eye Illustration
Blue light is linked to Aged Macular Degeneration, and now AMD is linked to Alzheimers.
 
A study of 3,877 randomly selected patients found a significant link between three degenerative eye diseases – age-related macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy and glaucoma – and Alzheimer’ disease. Over the five-year study, 792 cases of Alzheimer’s disease were diagnosed by a committee of dementia experts. Patients with age-related macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, or glaucoma were at 40 % to 50% greater risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease compared to similar people without these eye conditions.
