In this chapter, we provide an overview of the current concepts on trace elements, vitamins, and lipids in their relationship to age-related macular degeneration (AMD). Intake of zinc and omega-3 fatty acids can help lower the risk of AMD, particularly in people at high genetic risk. Vitamin D and nutrients influencing epigenetics appear to have a beneficial effect, but more research is needed before recommendation of these nutrients is warranted.
