Macular degeneration is a challenging disease that causes partial blindness. This happens when a special part of the retina called the macular begins to fail.

There are two forms of the disease: dry and wet. In this video, Dr. Holly Atkinson discusses who is at risk and how you can be on the lookout for macular degeneration.
