Two years ago, I was diagnosed with mild hard macular drusen. As of last week, my doctor suggested treatment has been AREDS 2 eye vitamins, healthy eating, and cardio exercise. I have started everything along with my regular vitamins. I do not smoke or drink, and I do not have a family history of a macular generation. Can you give me more information? Can this turn into something more serious? My doctor has said that it has been the same for years, and these new treatments are preventative. Do you have any additional suggestions or recommendations? I am 25 lbs overweight, and I am currently trying to lose weight. So far, I have lost 40 lbs. I am 53 years old, and my height is 5.5 feet. I do not have any other health related issues, but I am pre-hypertensive

Thank you for the information. My doctor has indicated that I have dry macular drusen, but it has yet to turn into ARMD or may never turn into that. It may or never turn into ARMD. Is that a correct statement?
