Aspirin Use and Wet Age Related Macular Degeneration: Is There A Link?

January 8th, 2014


Dr. Art Hister of Global T.V. morning news discusses the possible correlation  between the use of aspirin on a daily basis  and the increased risk of developing wet Age Related Macular Degeneration.  Most patients with a history of cardiac problems are advised to use a baby aspirin daily and for those patients the benefits well outweigh the risks.   This is an interesting article  and may provide some “food for thought” especially for those of us with a family history of ARMD who take aspirin  regularly as a preventative measure but  do not have a history of cardiac disease and/or have not been advised by our physician to take aspirin daily.
