Yes it is macular degeneration
ok, and right on queue in my utube subscriptions this morning:
diet recommendations for AMD (summarized as "fish, green, and gold")
about supplements for AMD (if diet is as described above, supplements offer no advantage)
This guy is sticking to the small amount of literature in his diet recommendations though. i.e. fish 3 times a week is from one study, and I don't know if studies have been done of
If you are inclined, the video's explanation of AMD pathophysiology is very good.

Thanks CK, that's really good. I'm going to send to the daughter, as the elder doesn't have the internet, nor know how to use it.
Interesting that what he said about food was almost exactly what the elder said. The elder said Salmon and green leafy vegetables. I suppose the Salmon as distinct from fish could be to do with cooking in vegetable oil as the Salmon avoids the cooking.
One clarification. He said that Olive oil was good, was he referring to it in its raw sate, for example added to a salad or was he referring to cooking the fish in olive oil? I'm just wondering if heating the olive oil may transform it into something that has the same issue as vegetable oil, for this particular purpose.
