Macular Degeneration

Macular Degeneration is a leading cause of blindness in the United States. The macula, the part of the back of the eye that allows you to see a clear, central picture, deteriorates.

The central vision is affected. You might notice a central blurry spot, dark spot, or wavy lines. Older age (>50 years of age), family history, Caucasian race, female gender, smoking, obesity, and Cardiovascular Disease are all risk factors.
