Ageing of the eyes
This is a condition that affects the macula at the back of the eye. There is a higher risk the older we are but generally would not occur before the age of 60. It affects our central vision and can lead to loss of detail and distortion to vision.
It does only affect the central part of our vision so we will not become blind. There are 2 main types dry and wet, it can occur in one or both eyes and can go undetected by the patient in the early stages.
