GUEST – Dr. Rosa Braga-Mele, Professor of Ophthalmology, University of Toronto, GFB Ophthalmologist

TOPIC – Macular Degeneration

INFO – Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is a medical condition which usually affects older adults and results in a loss of vision in the center of the visual field (the macula) because of damage to the retina. It occurs in “dry” and “wet” forms. It is a major cause of blindness and visual impairment in older adults (>50 years). Macular degeneration can make it difficult or impossible to read or recognize faces, although enough peripheral vision remains to allow other activities of daily life.
