Q&A with Dr. L

Dr. Leong Answers Your Eyecare Questions

How Can I Prevent Macular Degeneration??

Dr. Leong: Fortunately, there is prevention and treatment for AMD if scarring has not yet occurred. A study called AREDS (Age Related Eye Disease Study) was started in 2001, and AREDS2 results were released in 2013. Compiling over 3000 subjects over 10 years provided data on a special formulation of vitamin supplements that reduced the risk of advanced AMD.

AREDS2 supports supplementation of Vitamin C, E, zinc, lutein and zeaxanthin in patients with intermediate or advanced AMD. AREDS did not find any benefit in taking lutein or vitamin supplements for those who do not have AMD, nor AREDS also showed no benefit in subjects that were already well nourished with lutein in their diet.

An appropriate diet for those at risk for AMD can be found in “Eyefoods” which include food rich in carotenoids such as kale (nature’s sunglasses), orange peppers, spinach, and other examples found in the nutrition tab of our website.

Prevention of AMD can be achieved also by regular exercise, controlling blood pressure and cholesterol levels, no smoking, and wearing sunglasses and blue blocker coatings to block UV light and high energy blue light.
Another controversial preventative measure includes genetic testing for CHF gene (complement factor H) and ARMS2 gene. The research on gene testing suggest that certain nutritional supplements may be appropriate or harmful depending on your genotype.

In our aging baby boomer population, the number of people affected by AMD will increase. Our knowledge about AMD is increasing, and AMD is treatable if detected early enough. Drs. Leong and Bui would be happy to see you and discuss your macular health at your next eye exam.

What Our Patient's Say

I was extremely impressed with Dr Leong when I showed up at her office without an appointment in early May. I had noticed something odd with my 1-month old’s son eye while I had been up with him the night before. There was a white reflection in his left eye. I of course had gone on the Internet and looked this up and had convinced myself that my son had retinablastoma (a type of cancer).

Dr. Leong’s receptionist was very gracious when this sleep deprived crazed mom showed up without an appointment. She let me know that Dr. Leong was not in yet. She often came in early and would be there shortly. Dr. Leong saw me immediately when she arrived. She was calm and reassuring when she examined my son, taking my concerns seriously. She quickly assessed that she suspected that my son had a cataract in his eye. She then tried to get him in to see an opthamologist that day.

Unfortunately, the pediatric opthamologist was unable to see him. Dr. Leong then spent the day on the phone between her appointments trying to get him into the vision clinic at Alberta Children’s Hospital. They were also unable to see me so Dr. Leong made me an appt with the opthamologist on call at the Rocky View Hospital the next day, which was of course the Saturday of the may long weekend. Her diagnosis was confirmed. I am happy to report that we have since seen the pediatric opthamologist at Alberta Children’s Hospital and Drew’s surgery dare is scheduled.

Thank you Dr. Leong for working so hard to help Drew. Your commitment to getting Drew seen was admirable. We are unable to express how much your diligence and persistence has benefited Drew, our family and his sight. Thank You. – Michelle
