Were you looking for information on Macular Degeneration? Macular degeration is a common misspelling of macular degeneration.
Macular degeneration is an eye condition commonly associated with aging. In fact, it is the leading cause of vision loss among Americans ages 65 and over. The disease affects the sharp, central vision needed for activities such as reading and driving.
There are two types of macular degeneration: wet and dry. Treatment will depend on the type a person has, but can include forms of photodynamic therapy and laser surgery. In early cases of the dry type, certain vitamins can be used as treatment.
