Adults who regularly take aspirin may have an increased risk for late age-related macular degeneration -- a potentially blinding condition.
 
Researchers in Wisconsin analyzed data from a twenty-year study of older adults. Each participant had an eye exam every five years and was asked about their aspirin habits.
 
Those who said they regularly took aspirin ten years before the study were significantly more likely to develop the eye disease.
 
Experts say more studies are needed to confirm the results.
