How you can fight macular degeneration

There's something new for patients with a serious eye disease. Researchers are finding cholesterol eye drops could help fight macular degeneration, a leading cause of blindness.

The study at Washington University says the drops cut down on the buildup of blood vessels and white blood cells in the eyes, symptoms consistent with the disease.

Cholesterol eye drops are still under study, but researchers say this could turn out to be a real breakthrough if the results turn out this well on humans.
