Macular Degenaration

Were you looking for information on Macular Degeneration? Macular degenaration is a common misspelling of macular degeneration.
 
Macular degeneration is a common eye disease that blurs the sharp, central vision needed for activities such as reading and driving. It is the leading cause of vision loss among Americans ages 65 and over. While the disease is typically associated with aging, its causes are still unclear. Possible symptoms include blurry vision and dark areas in the center of vision.
 
There are different types of this condition (wet and dry), and the treatment of choice will depend on which type you have. In either case, the condition cannot be cured; however, remaining vision can be saved if treatment is started early enough. Treatment may involve options such as injections, laser surgery, and certain vitamins.
