If you’re over 50, you’ve likely heard of Macular Degeneration. It’s the leading cause of severe vision loss in adults. In fact, the CDC estimates that 1.8 million people have Macular Degeneration and 7.3 million are at substantial risk of vision loss due to it. Luckily, consistent eye checks can help protect your vision from deteriorating.
Macular Degeneration occurs when there are changes to the macula, a part of the retina at the back of the eye. Symptoms include difficulty seeing people’s faces, reading on your phone or tablet, shadowy areas in your central vision, or unusually fuzzy vision.
