Age-related macular degeneration (AMD), like Alzheimer’s disease and atherosclerosis, is a lateonset degenerative disease. The multifactorial nature of these diseases has made the search for absolute genetic contributions challenging. However, recent advances in the study of genetic associations with AMD have provided evidence that there may be strong genetic contributions to this disease.
