A single daily glass of wine with dinner may rob you of the ability to read, drive, or even watch TV.

Age-related macular degeneration is a common condition in which the central 20/20 vision area of the eye degenerates over time. While peripheral vision is preserved, you permanently lose the ability to see details. A recent study of 21,000 people over a 12 year period, demonstrated that drinking as little as 1 ounce of alcohol, which is one 6 ounce glass of wine, one can of beer, or one shot of whiskey per day, increased the risk of macular degeneration and permanent damage to your vision by 44%.

The more closely we look at even modest long-term alcohol consumption, the more serious problems we are finding. So take this as a word to the wise. Even that single glass of wine with dinner, over time, can permanently damage your vision.
