Saffron - Macular Degeneration

I saw a retinologist last week who diagnosed early macular degenerationin my left eye. He suggested a variety of supplements and urged me to use saffron. Do you have any information on this supplement? I found only one supplier only on the internet, a company I never heard of.

I found some more information. Apparently saffron does improve macular degeneration, but when the saffron is stopped, the degeneration returns.
