Stargardt’s Macular Dystrophy explained
Libby Clegg has a degenerative genetic condition that affects her eyes. The exact name of the disease is known as Stargardt’s Macular Dystrophy which is a rare disorder that wastes away the central area of the retina. This means that Libby is slowly becoming blind and relies heavily on her guide dog. Never one to let her disorder stop her, Libby has been impressing judges and fans with her graceful moves on the ice. Retinal specialist at Ophthalmic consultants of London, Shah Kashani spoke exclusively to Express.co.uk to discuss Libby’s condition.
