Daily Aspirin use could cause blindness

Adults who regularly take aspirin may be at a higher risk of developing macular degeneration, a new study finds.
Researchers in Wisconsin looked at information from a 20-year study of older adults, who each had an eye exam every five years.
Those who said they regularly took aspirin 10 years before the study were significantly more likely to develop the potentially blinding condition.
Health experts say more studies are needed to confirm the results. The study is published in the Journal of the American Medical Association.
