Life After Macular Degeneration

Macular Degeneration is a medical condition that causes damage to the macula, a small but important part of the retina that is responsible for central vision. This can lead to blurriness or dark areas in the center of vision, making it difficult to see fine details, read, or recognize faces.

Approximately one in 10 Americans aged 50 and older have the early form of AMD and approximately 1 out of every 100 Americans ages 50 and older have the vision threatening late form of AMD. –Prevent Blindness
