Macular Degeneration

Macular Degeneration is the most common cause of irreversible blindness in the Caucasian population. It is characterized by a breakdown of the central retina.

Patients with macular degeneration usually have central vision loss. Early on, this can cause a slight blurring of vision. As time progresses, the vision loss can be more profound.
