SEMINAR: Macular Degeneration Month

SEMINAR: Macular Degeneration Month

Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is the leading cause of vision loss among people age 50 and older. It is a is a disorder of the macula, a small spot near the center of the retina and the part of the eye needed for sharp, central vision, which lets us see objects that are straight ahead. AMD by itself does not lead to complete blindness, with no ability to see. However, the loss of central vision in AMD can interfere with simple everyday activities, such as the ability to see faces, drive, read, write, or do close work, such as cooking or fixing things around the house.
