Like everything, our eyes are susceptible to the effects of age. And with age, we become particularly vulnerable to a number of eye conditions, including Age-Related Macular Degeneration, commonly known as AMD.
AMD is a condition that damages the macula, or the central portion of the retina. The disease progresses slowly, with little to no warning symptoms, until central vision deteriorates and is often completely lost.
In fact, AMD is the leading cause of blindness among older Americans and is currently found in approximately 6.5% of Americans over the age of 40.
