Can smoking affect my eyes?

Smoking has been linked to various eye conditions.  One of the most serious is macular degeneration.

As it progresses, macular degeneration means a loss of central vision, affecting your ability to read, drive and recognize faces.  It is a leading cause of blindness in people over 65.  There is no known cure.

Research shows that smokers are up to four times more likely to develop macular degeneration than non-smokers.

One study shows that, just one year after giving up smoking your risk of macular degeneration can be reduced by almost 7%.

Your eyesight is precious.  It’s never too late to quit!
