Need a reason to quit smoking? You know smoking kills, but did you know it can cause blindness.
. The smoke you exhale damages your skin making you look old and haggard: and your eyes become red and puffy.
Worse, the smoke you inhale is one of the biggest risk factors for Macular Disease,
The commonest forms of Macular Disease are incurable and although you won't be totally blind you won't be able to drive and reading or watching TV will be very difficult.
Eating healthily and stopping smoking can decrease your chances of developing Macular Disease and increase your chances of maintaining good vision for the rest of your life.
