I have been vegetarian and vegan for years. I have better eye outcomes when I eat vegan and many vegetables, limit oils and fat, and maintain a lower weight. Unfortunately for me, the cookies and ice cream and french fries version of the vegan or vegetarian diet doesn't help me much. A study might want to have a qualitative component, since it is quite easy to be a "junk food vegetarian". My retinologist noticed a difference with the lowfat vegan diet (unprompted, he said, "keep doing whatever you are doing".) Did I? No (with lousy results), but maybe I will now. This is interesting.
