Blindness is an enormous problem worldwide. These statistics might disturb you:
Age related macular degeneration (ARMD) is the leading cause of blindness for people over the age of 50.
Sixty million people suffer from ARMD worldwide, and 10 million are blind.
Severe, irreversible vision loss affects 30 percent of people over the age of 55.
Cataracts are another major cause of blindness, affecting more than 20 million people in the U.S. alone.
Cataracts are caused by lipid peroxidation of the epithelial layer of the lens. Although they can have other causes, most are related to aging.
Cataracts result in 3 million cataract surgeries every year.
Clinical studies tell us that photic injury from the cumulative effect of repeated “photic insults” and the resulting gradual loss of photoreceptor cells is a major cause of ARMD.
