RSS
Stargardt disease, also known as Stargardt macular dystrophy or juvenile macular degeneration, is a condition that involves the retina of the eye. The retina is the layer of the eye which is responsible for sensing light. Most people with Stargardt disease have some loss of vision at a young age, either as a child or an adolescent, although some people may retain good vision until adulthood. It is estimated that about 1 in 10,000 people has Stargardt disease.
