Scientists say they're working on a pill that would restore vision in patients with invasive macular degeneration.
Macular Degeneration destroys your sharp, central vision; that's the vision you use to see objects clearly, to read or drive.
Researchers in Florida said they've treated three patients with an experimental, vitamin-based pill. They report that those who used it, saw results within days.
It's unknown whether the pill would work for those with the dry form of Macular Degeneration.
