Macular degeneration is the leading cause of blindness in the UK. The macular is the part of the eye responsible for detailed central vision.
If there is a change at the macular, then tasks such as reading, sewing or watching TV will be affected. The change is purely a loss of vision, causes no pain or headache, and cannot be corrected with spectacles.
Ask our Optometrist about the health of your macular at your next appointment!
