As you get older, you become at risk of developing a variety of age-related eye diseases. One of the more serious vision conditions impacting seniors is macular degeneration, the leading cause of blindness among Americans over the age of 65. Approximately 1.75 million people across the country suffer from age-related macular degeneration, and that figure is expected to exceed 3 million by 2020.

Age-related macular degeneration occurs when the macula, the part of the retina that helps you achieve sharp, central vision, deteriorates. The retina is the light-sensing part of your eye located on the inside back wall of your eyeball. As the condition becomes worse, you will experience a gradual loss of vision.
