Regular aspirin users have increased risk for blindness
(CNN) — Regular aspirin users may have an increased risk for macular degeneration which is a leading cause of blindness. Researchers studied more than two-thousand adults over a fifteen-year period. They found those who used aspirin regularly, defined as once or more per week during the past year, had a significantly increased risk for macular degeneration.
Doctors say patients should not stop taking aspirin if their doctor has prescribed the drug to help with a medical condition.
