The effect of zinc in AMD is not as significant as the effect of omega 3 fatty acids in AMD. Docosahexaenoic acid [DHA], one of the components of omega 3 fatty acids plays a major role in stimulating the light-sensing nerve cells, found on retina, which is required for preventing AMD. Because of the possible toxic effects and complications of oral zinc administration, widespread use of zinc in macular degeneration is not warranted much.The amount of Omega 3 fatty acids found in fishes is relatively higher than the amounts found in crabs and oysters.
