Warning over Aspirin link to AMD

We are warning patients with heart disease not to stop taking prescribed Aspirin even though a new study has linked it with age-related macular degeneration (AMD).

A new study suggests that Aspirin may increase the risk of developing wet AMD. However we says that, for patients at risk of heart attacks, the dangers of stopping or not taking aspirin are much higher.
