About macular degeneration and SMD

Degenerative diseases of the retina are among the most common causes of untreatable blindness in the world.  As many as thirty million people in the United States and Europe suffer from macular degeneration, which represents a $25-30 billion worldwide market that has yet to be effectively addressed.  

Stargardt's Macular Dystrophy (SMD) is one of the most common forms of macular degeneration in the world.  SMD causes progressive vision loss, usually starting in children between 10 to 20 years of age.  Eventually, blindness results from photoreceptor loss associated with degeneration in the pigmented layer of the retina, called the retinal pigment epithelium or RPE cell layer.
