Hi there, Welcome to Justanswer! I am Dr.Customerand pleased to help you. I am very glad to hear that your vision is much better now! This doesn't happen too often, and you are quite lucky. Even if this supplements cannot promise to "keep the macular degeneration at bay", they are nevertheless positive for the nourishment of and the circulation in your eyes. Therefore I would take them as long as you can afford them; they usually don't have any side effects and are safe to use for a lifetime. I wish you all the best!
