ge-related macular degeneration (AMD) is an eye disease that can blur the sharp, central vision you need for activities like reading and driving. AMD doesnt cause complete blindness, but losing your central vision can make it harder to see faces, drive, or do close-up work like cooking or fixing things around the house. AMD happens very slowly in some people. Even if you have early AMD, you may not experience vision loss for a long time. For other people, AMD progresses faster and can lead to central vision loss in one eye or both eyes.
Watch the video below about AMD. After watching the video, write a 1 – 2 page essay about AMD. Include the following information in your essay.
How many people in the US has AMD

Some of the information is in the video and your textbook, however you will have to use an outside source to find most of the information.
Important guidelines to follow:
Required font: Arial, 12 point
Required formatting: Double-spaced
Required length: 1 page (minimum)
When using outside sources (other than your textbook), you must use APA style to reference your source(s) at the end of your essay.
