Predominately affecting older adults and often inherited, Macular Degeneration is a condition in which the eye's macula (the central area of the retina) breaks down.
Macular Degeneration causes vision loss in the center of the field of vision, making it very difficult to read or recognize faces, while peripheral vision remains generally unaffected.
