This month we are focusing on vision loss in seniors.
The four main causes of senior vision loss are Diabetic Retinopathy, Age Related Macular Degeneration (AMD), Cataracts, and Glaucoma. Today, we will talk about Age Related Macular Degeneration.
AMD is Age Related Macular Degeneration
The macula is a small part of the retina. Age related means that it happens as people get older. So AMD is a disease that affects the macula (part of the retina), and can get worse with age.
