There’s no doubt that we have become more reliant on digital screens than ever before in 2020. With many of us forced to work or study from home, digital devices have become essential to keep us connected to the real world.

According to the experts at the American Macular Degeneration Foundation, macular degeneration (MD) is a known incurable ocular disease. This eye condition is currently affecting 10 million people in the country.
The cornea is the transparent outer layer at the front of your eye. It covers the iris and the pupil, much like a watch crystal covers the face of a watch.

This painful sore is what is referred to as corneal ulcer or keratitis.
