New Study: Daily Aspirin May Lead to Vision Loss in Seniors

Seniors
Craig Loftus

(WIBX) – A newly released European study says seniors who take a daily aspirin are twice as likely to experience vision loss. The study determined that persons taking the pill are two times more likely to experience late stage macular degeneration than those who don’t use the pain reliever at all.

Scientists say aspirin doesn’t appear to directly cause vision loss but there’s some worry that it, in some way, causes the age-related vision loss to be worse than it otherwise would have been.

According to a published report, the study included Norwegian, Estonian, British, French, Italian, Greek and Spanish seniors. In total, 4691 participants 65 years of age and older participated in the study.
