This is a common eye disease linked to ageing that in time will destroys sharp, clear central vision due to damage to the retina. The retina is the very thin tissue that lives at the back of the eye and contains the light-sensing cells which are sending visual signals to the brain. Sharp, clear, 'straight ahead' vision is processed by the macula, which is the central part of the retina. When the macula becomes damaged through eye disease, many daily activities such as driving and reading become increasingly difficult.
Some studies indicate that eating a diet high in antioxidants may reduce the risk of developing age-related macular degeneration. Some of the highest levels of antioxidants can be found in cherries, blueberries, grapes, oranges, plums, pineapple and kiwi fruit.
