AMD patients at reduced risk of traffic accidents
AMD patients at reduced risk of traffic accidents (July 12, 2013 - Insidermedicine) From Alabama - Research published in the British Journal of Ophthalmology finds that AMD patients may actually be at reduced risk of motor vehicle collisions. Researchers reviewed a cohort of individuals from four previous studies, comparing collision rates in those with early, intermediate and advanced AMD to those with normal healthy eyes. Results showed that collision rates were highest among those with normal eye health and was lowest among those with intermediate AMD. Researchers believe that self-regulatory driving habits, such as avoiding certain driving situations, may be the reason for this reduced risk.
