What is it about: Age-related Macular Degeneration (AMD) is one of the leading causes of irreversible blindness and visual impairment apart from cataract and glaucoma especially in the elderly population. This disease adversely affects activities of daily living and quality of life, causing many individuals to lose their independence in their retirement years. Worse yet, early stages of the development of AMD may not be present thus the diagnosis is usually confirmed in the later stages and would deteriorate progressively.
