In animal models of AMD, taurine deficiency leads to retinal photoreceptor degeneration and impaired visual acuity [106]. There have not been any studies that have looked at taurine for the prevention or treatment of AMD, but by ensuring that patients have an adequate intake of cysteine, taurine and glutathione will be available to the retina. Taurine is widely distributed in animal tissues and dietary sources include eggs, seafood, and meat. Plants do not synthesize taurine and human synthesis can be limited [107].

Sun protection measures should be encouraged, and patients should be counseled to effectively achieve appropriate levels of vitamin D through diet and nutritional supplements. Older individuals require more vitamin D than younger patients because of the aforementioned issues associated with achieving suitable vitamin D levels. The USDA recommends that men and women over 50 years old get 10 micrograms (400 IU) of vitamin D each day, and that people over 70 get 15 micrograms (600 IU) daily. These recommendations are not recommended dietary allowances (RDAs), but suggestions of adequate intakes (AIs).

Alpha-lipoic acid is soluble in water and lipids due to its small size and chemical structure.
