Macular degeneration (AMD or ARMD) is a medical disorder that causes blurry vision or blindness in the center of the visual field. The macula, which enables crisp, center vision, is damaged by macular degeneration.
Diabetes can be a very debilitating disease. In addition to advanced susceptibility to infections, nerve damage (neuropathy) and organ failure, diabetics have higher chances of developing eye or vision problems. This happens when sugar that is not processed by the pancreas roam free in the body, eventually rupturing the tiny blood vessels in the retina.
