Abstract:
PURPOSE: To study age-related macular degeneration (AMD) in old and very old individuals with family history of AMD to find the proportion of those with early and advanced AMD. DESIGN: Retrospective cross-sectional cohort study of individuals with family history of AMD. METHODS: Database of 897 AMD patients ages 75 to 102 years with family history of AMD was compiled. Color fundus photographs were graded in a masked fashion according to the International Classification of AMD. RESULTS: With increasing age, a gradually larger proportion of participants had advanced AMD; 54% (469 of 863) of all those 75 years and older had advanced AMD, 64% (258 of 406) of all those 85 years and older, 74% (37 of 50) of all those 95 years and older, and all (eight of eight) 100 years and older had advanced AMD. CONCLUSIONS: All the centenarians in the present study had advanced AMD.
