Living With Macular Degeneration – Frederick
Age Related Macular Degeneration is a common eye condition and the leading cause of vision loss among people age 50 and older. Damage to the macula causes a small spot near the center of the retina, the part of the eye needed for sharp central vision. In some case, Macular Degeneration advances so slowly that vision loss does not occur for a long time. In others, the disease progresses faster and may lead to a loss of vision in one or both eyes. As Macular Degeneration progresses, a blurred area near the center of vision is a common symptom. Over time, the blurred area may grow larger or you may develop blank spots in your central vision. Objects also may not appear to be as bright as they used to be.
