Baby boomers and age-related eye disease
(BPT) - As the population continues to age at an unprecedented rate, the concern about age-related eye disease comes more into focus.
According to the US Census Bureau, the population of adults over age 65 is expected to double by 2025, and the American Optometric Association (AOA) reports that the incidence of Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD) is expected to triple during the same time period.
In 2010, more than 10 million people were affected by AMD, and looking even further into the future, that number is expected to jump 150 percent by 2050, based on the National Eye Institute’s (NEI) Projections for AMD.
