Eye disorder that affects millions may cause 'severe' complications and 'death' from Covid

According to NICE, estimates indicate that around 39,8000 people develop neo-vascular AMD in the UK each year.

“Given a total UK population of 60 million, this equates to 663 new cases per million per year,” explains the health body.

The disease tends to affect a person’s central vision and can result in severe loss of central vision, causing a person to go blind.

Risk factors for this include being aged 50 and old, smoking, having high blood pressure or eating a diet high in saturated fats.
