Role of the Pharmacist

Pharmacists are ideally placed to assist patients at risk for ARMD and those undergoing diagnosis or already diagnosed with ARMD. In addition to helping patients identify risk factors, pharmacists can advise patients on how to avoid ARMD. Additionally, pharmacists can suggest supplements that may slow the progression of the condition in patients who have been diagnosed.
