As we enter our "Golden Years", we are challenged by many diseases that seem reserved for seniors. Macular degeneration is a degenerative process affecting the retina of seniors. Age, smoking, U.V. light and heredity are considered the most likely risk factors for macular degeneration (AMD). AMD, closely follows the age curve and almost all seniors over 80 years of age will show some signs. Treatment is improving daily but awareness and prevention is best.
