Macular Degeneration is an age-related disease which negatively impacts the retina. The macula, which is the center of vision in the retina, is damaged as this disease takes course. Macular degeneration is categorized into “wet” and “dry” forms. The dry form of macular degeneration may involve calcifications forming in the retina, and the retinal cells may begin to decrease through a process call atrophy. The wet form of macular degeneration involves new blood vessels growing under the retina, causing scarring and swelling on the retinal tissues.
