Macular degeneration is a disease of the eye that can lead to blindness by affecting the center of vision, causing blind spots. The part of the human eye affected is the retina. It is estimated that macular degeneration currently affects more than 13 million Americans. Although advancing age is the primary cause, with a third of people over age 75 affected, there are some other risk factors for this debilitating eye disorder.
