Many Diabetics have low blood levels of zinc, and those with damage
to the retina have even lower levels.  A study in the European Journal of
Clinical Nutrition found that zinc may guard against oxidation damage to the retina.

 Subjects took 30 mgs of zinc per day for three months, and their
blood zinc levels went up, and the markers showing oxidation went down.

In the general population, people don't get enough zinc.  You
should take around 15 mgs per day.
