Macular Degeneration Surgery at Ekol Hospitals in Izmir, Turkey
Dry macular degeneration is a chronic disease which affects the eyes, causing blindness in the center of the field of vision. The disease is age-related and is caused by the deteriorating of the tissue on the inside of the back wall of the eyeball.
Another form of macular degeneration is wet macular degeneration. This is caused by the leaking of blood from blood cells grown under the retina in the back of the eye. Dry macular degeneration can affect your quality of life, causing blurred central vision or a blind spot in your central vision, rendering you unable to perform many tasks, such as reading, driving and recognizing faces.
