Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is the leading cause of blindness in the world and may affect about 30-50 million people. Due to prevalence of this disease and the progressive population aging in recent years, in addition to conventional methods of treatment of AMD, there are more preventive and treatment support factors that can be used. An adequate diet, especially rich in antioxidant compounds, seems to play an important role in this case. Available scientific data suggest that an important role in AMD prevention and / or delay may play the appropriate selection of macronutrients, in particular fats and carbohydrates. In this work, based on the available data, the study reviews the relationship between the intake of selected nutrients and age-related macular degeneration.

Keywords: age-related macular degeneration; carbohydrates; diet; fats; prevention.
