[31/08/2014] CAN SMOKING REALLY MAKE YOU GO BLIND?

Smoking can cause macular degeneration and blindness

 

There are two main types of macular degeneration, wet and dry. Wet macular degeneration is incurable but it can be slowed down by drugs which help stop the growth of abnormal blood vessels.

People with dry Macular gradually lose the middle bit of their sight. First their sight gets blurry and they may find that colours fade.

Note that smokers are up to four times more likely than non-smokers to develop Macular and smokers with certain genes are twenty times more likely to get the condition.

Stop smoking today and save your sight.

You you can find more information about the effect of smoking and blindness here:
