Macular degeneration—also called age-related macular degeneration—is an eye disease that gradually destroys central vision. It is caused by breakdown of the macula (a tiny part of the retina). Symptoms include blurred vision, seeing wavy lines where straight lines actually exist, impaired color vision, and difficulty seeing details (whether close-up or far away). Macular degeneration can ultimately lead to blindness if left untreated. Be proactive about your vision: contact us today to learn more.
