Baby boomers, those born between 1946-1964, are somehow beating the statistics when it comes to eye health in ways there parents did not according to a recent article.  They are experiencing better retinal health and it may be due to healthier lifestyles and doctors and scientists are welcoming the news.

According to researchers at the University of Wisconsin-Madison their study revealed that over the length of the study the overall population beat age-related macular degeneration, the leading risk to eye health in older Americans, by nine times the average of those born between 1901-1924. Researchers said that overall, each generation was 60% less likely to develop AMD than the previous generation.
