Were you looking for information on Macular Degeneration? Macular degenration is a common misspelling of macular degeneration.
An eye disease commonly associated with aging, macular degeneration can cause severe and irreversible loss of central vision (it rarely leads to complete blindness, however). Symptoms can include blurry vision and seeing straight lines as crooked or wavy.
While there is no cure, treatment (such as vitamins, surgery, and injections) can help preserve vision that has not already been lost. The specific treatment your eye care provider recommends will depend on the type of macular degeneration you have (wet or dry).
