Geographic atrophy (GA) of the retina, which is the last stage of nonexudative (dry) age-related macular degeneration (AMD), is a leading cause of blindness that affects approximately 1 million people in the United States and more than 5 million people worldwide, or up to 20% of patients with AMD. Symptoms are central vision loss, difficulty seeing in low-light conditions, and trouble seeing colors clearly. Risk factors include age over 60 years, smoking, poor diet, comorbid conditions (hypertension), and having overweight/obesity.
