ARMD or Age Related Macular Degeneration is a deterioration or breakdown of the macula cells, which is responsible for your central vision. In dry macular degeneration, tiny yellow drusen develop.
The drusen is accumulated fatty material that form in the macula. They accumulate due to poor circulation and waste build up in the macula. Taking antioxidants is very important in the waste clearing process.
The drusen contribute to the cells in the macula, resulting in blurred vision. The health and condition of the macula effects everything we do in life that requires fine detail.
Macular degeneration is the leading cause of vision loss in older Americans. The number of Americans predicted to be effected by ARMD is 17.8 million by the years 2050.
