Description

Macular degeneration is a disease of the Eye.
The gradual loss of vision with increasing age is Macular degeneration.
It is an age related eye disease which slowly reduces the eye vision making adults unable to read and work properly. It makes them unable to recognize people as well. Free radicals attack the cells and damage them resulting in macular degeneration. Lutein and Zeaxanthin are two anti oxidants. They are found in Pistachios. They fight against free radicals and destroy them. They prevent cell damage and thus prevent macular degeneration.

Macular degeneration is of Two types
Dry Macular degeneration : The accumulation of yellow pigments in the retina is Dry Macular Degeneration. These pigments are the waste products known as Drusens. They damage the tissues of the Retina and lead to gradual loss of Vision. Prolonged Dry Macular Degeneration may lead to Wet Macular Degeneration.
Wet Macular Degeneration : It occurs when the body produces blood vessels to clear the Drusens from the Retina. But the Blood vessels are placed at the wrong site. This causes damage to the Macula of the Retina.

Genetic disorders cannot be cured because the genetic defect is something which is encoded into a cell's DNA and many encounter it at the birth stage. Laser treatment is sometimes recommended, but it will not stop the progression of disease.

UV blocking sunglasses are generally recommended for outdoors.
Stem Cell Therapy is also one of the treatments which is known to have positive result in curing the disease.
So, I guess, you must consult your doctor regarding the disease. As, the disease may progress and lead to more and more loss of vision of your son's eyes.

God Bless!!!
