Macular Degeneration (MD) is the leading cause of blindness in Australia, affecting central vision. MD is primarily age related and most frequently affects people over the age of 50. One in seven people over the age of 50 are affected by the disease and the incidence increases with age. It is sometimes referred to as Age Related Macular Degeneration or 'AMD'.Keep your family in the picture is the theme of MD Awareness Week 2012 - it's a fact that if a member of the family has Macular Degeneration, there is a 50% chance of developing the disease.
