Incidence and progression of AMD in fellow eye (October 29, 2014 - Insidermedicine) From Wisconsin - A new report published in JAMA Ophthalmology examines the incidence and progression of age-related macular degeneration in the fellow eye. Researchers studied over 4,300 individuals taking part in a 20 year study. Participants were between 43 and 86 years of age, and given eye exams every 5 years for a 20-year period. Results showed that severity of AMD in the fellow eye was linked severity in the affected eye.
