Stargardt's

What is Stargardt's?

Stargardt's Disease is a form of macular dystrophy that develops early in life. With Stargardt's Disease, the macula and surrounding retina are affected. Damage to the macula results in loss of visual acuity or sharpness of vision, decreased color vision and large central blind spots (scotomata).
