    In this webinar, hosted by MDFA with Julie Glyde and Dilini Manthilaka, we look at eating to improve eye health and how foods can reduce your risk of age-related macular degeneration (AMD). Julie and Dilini also chat about supplements to take to reduce your risk of AMD and Julie talks about how you can incorporate these foods into your diet. Finally, we answer some questions from the MDFA community.
