Macular Degeneration is a leading cause of failing sight in old people. The disease causes deterioration of the macula, the central area of the retina. While new treatments such as photodynamic therapy (PDT) and laser treatment give hope, unfortunately the condition is often not treatable. This book explains what happens when the eye is affected by macular degeneration, the symptoms, aids and appliances. It also suggests organisations to contact and further advice.
