Aspirin can cause Blindness in Aged People

Daily use of aspirin can significantly increase the chances of an eye disease, which can cause blindness in aged people, a new research has warned.


The study has found a link between age-related macular degeneration (AMD) and aspirin’s regular use. AMD is the most common cause of blindness in people aged 50 and above.  


According to a report published by JAMA Internal Medicine, Aspirin is used on a wide scale across the world to prevent the cardiovascular diseases such as myocardial infarction popularly known as heart attack and ischemic stroke.


Though this recent study has suggested that regular usage of Aspirin can be associated with the risk of age-related macular degeneration, other studies haven’t found any such link. Apart from reducing usage of Aspirin, quitting smoking can also prevent age-related macular degeneration (AMD), said the researchers.
