Children and adults who either have macular degeneration or are closely related to someone who has macular degeneration are sought for a study of macular degeneration and other related ocular disorders to prevent visual loss and blindness for current and future generations
We are studying what might cause macular degeneration and related eye disorders or why these disorders might progress. We will look at differences in biology, including genes, and environmental exposures, like smoking and diet, by collecting blood samples, lifestyle questionnaires, and eye images from volunteers.
What we're hoping for
We hope to better identify risk factors for macular degeneration and other ocular disorders and how to prevent these disorders from progressing.
