Age-related Macular Degeneration (AMD) is a progressive, chronic disease of the central retina, and is the leading cause of blindness in Australia, accounting for 50 per cent of cases among persons aged over 50 years. This project aims to establish both the modifiable (especially nutrition, smoking) and non-modifiable (e.g. identified genetic polymorphisms increasing risk) factors, to define the typical profile of large cohort of patients presenting for treatment for late-stage AMD.
