Does Smoking Increase the Risk of Macular Degeneration?

by Alan McClain, Macular Degeneration Expert
August 03, 2017

Question: Does smoking increase the risk of macular degeneration? How?

Answer: Yes, it does increase the risk.  Smoking sets the individual in the direction of cardiovascular disease, which makes vision problems worse.  Since the 1980’s, smoking has been discouraged in the workplace and should be avoided or stopped, for a more healthy lifestyle and longer life.
