A Drug That Protects The Heart, Found To Protect The Eyes

Macular degeneration is the leading cause of vision loss in the United States. There's no cure, but researchers have discovered a link // that may help prevent the disease. Drugs designed to protect your heart may also help your eyes.

The disease is often attributed to simply getting older, but new research suggests there could be another risk factor -- Cholesterol. Researchers wondered if cholesterol-lowering drugs -- called statins -- would reduce the risk of macular degeneration.Therefore they studied the records of more than 5,500 men and they found that those who had macular degeneration were less frequently using statins .

Specifically, there was a 50-percent reduction in the risk of macular degeneration among the men taking statins. Thus researchers say the question remains why , they say it is very important for them to understand the statins work as this is very important for understanding the cause for the disease.
