You can help prevent the progression by taking lutein 20 mg per day, and alpha lipoic acid 300mg per day. I stopped the progression over 10 years ago and still do not have any signs of progression.
My doctor told me it was witch craft 10 years ago, but now sells the supplements in his office. Make sure that you are also taking vitamins C and E to support them.
