Macular changes in 60 to 80-year-old people i.e. drusen (DR), pigmentary changes (PC) and exudative changes (EXC) are assessed by fundoscopy in a random and age stratified population with 924 of the participants examined in both maculae (1848 eyes). DR, PC and EXC were found in 18.4%, 12.9% and 2.1% of all eyes with a rising frequency associated with increasing age.
