Macular degeneration

Macular degeneration, also known as Age-related macular degeneration (AMD), is an eye disease which is the leading cause of severe, irreversible vision impairment in developed countries.1,2 This eye disease is caused by a disorder of the macula, a part of the retina at the back of the eye, that has a very high concentration of photoreceptor cells, which sends signals to the brain in order to interpret those signals as images.

Some studies have shown that 8.7% of the worldwide population has age-related macular degeneration, and the projected number of people with the disease is around 288 million in 2040.3 Furthermore, other studies have suggested substantial racial or ethnic differences in disease prevalence.3,4,5

Despite the fact that are some studies in which the females seem to be more affected by the hypertrophic scars, probably reflecting the greater frequency of earlobe piercing among females1, in general, the researchers reach to the conclusion that men and women are similarly affected.2

  • The risk of getting AMD increase from 2% to 30% from the middle-aged people to the people over 75 years.
  • The Dry AMD makes up for about 90% of the total cases.
  • The Wet AMD is held responsible for only about 10% of the cases but it’s responsible for the highest number of legal blindness cases.
  • The disease is most common among older white people.
  • Risk factors:
    • Smoking
