Macular degeneration affects more than 10 million Americans making it one of the leading causes of vision loss. This condition is the result of damage to or the breakdown of the macula. The macula is a small area at the back of the eye that allows you to see fine details clearly.
Symptoms of macular degeneration may include blurriness, distortions, small blind spots, or darkness in the center of your field of vision, affecting vision at both, near and far distances. Macular degeneration is most often the result of the body’s natural aging process.
Because many people may not realize they have a problem until blurred vision becomes obvious, it is important to see your ophthalmologist regularly to facilitate early detection.
