Age-Related Macular Degeneration
With the aging demographics in America, there are increasing numbers of patients with early, moderate, and late stage macular degeneration. 

Macular degeneration is the leading cause of vision loss, affecting more than 10 million Americans, which is more than cataracts and glaucoma combined.

Host of The Wizard of Eyes, Dr. Robert  Abel, discusses the two basic types of macular degeneration: “dry” and “wet,” as well as current diagnostics, treatment options, and prevention measures to save you from losing your vision.
