Chris A. Knobbe

Chris Knobbe, MD is an ophthalmologist and Associate Clinical Professor Emeritus, formerly of
the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, in Dallas, Texas. Dr. Knobbe has a deep
interest in general nutrition, particularly as it relates to chronic degenerative disease, though
his primary area of expertise is with the disorder age-related macular degeneration (AMD).
AMD is the leading cause of irreversible vision loss and blindness in people over the age of 65,
currently affecting approximately 196 million people worldwide. Knobbe’s research efforts and
revolutionary hypothesis for the nutritional basis of AMD have resulted in a published scientific
paper, a book – Ancestral Dietary Strategy to Prevent and Treat Macular Degeneration – a
website, CureAMD.org, and a second book currently in the making. Knobbe’s current research
focuses substantially on omega-6 seed oil consumption as a major unifying driver of the chronic
degenerative diseases of civilization, including AMD. Dr. Knobbe is the founder and president of Cure AMD Foundation™, a nonprofit organization dedicated to the prevention of vision loss from AMD.
