Air pollution is a global problem that can have serious health problems for countless people. While air smog has long been associated with lung and heart complications, it turns out that there is a link between air pollution and vision loss. Fine particle air pollution has now been tied to macular degeneration, an age-related eye condition that can lead to irreversible blindness.
