Summary "This is the first general text on nutrition and eye health that was created for physicians, nutritionists and researchers. It demonstrates the importance of nutrition to eye health, covering the life span from visual development in infants to major causes of blindness and visual disability in older eyes such as cataract and age-related macular degeneration. It represents the link between the epidemic of obesity and diabetic retinopathy and discusses the implications of inflammation in older adults with common eye diseases."--Jacket
