  1. Fulltext. Relation of smoking to the incidence of Age-related maculopathy : The Beaver Dam Eye study.

    Article - En anglais

    Fulltext.

    To date, a number of reports have been published on the relation of cigarette smoking to age-related maculopathy, an important cause of blindness in the United States.

    However, few studies have examined the relation between smoking and the incidence of age-related maculopathy.

    In this report, the authors examine this association in persons aged 43-86 years (n=3,583) at baseline who were participants in the baseline examination and 5-year follow-up of the Beaver Dam Eye Study, Beaver Dam, Wisconsin (1988-1990 and 1993-1995).

    Exposure data on cigarette smoking were obtained from questions about present and past smoking, duration of smoking, and the number of cigarettes smoked per day.

    Age-related maculopathy status was determined by grading stereoscopic color fundus photographs using the Wisconsin Age-related Maculopathy Grading System.

    After controlling for age, sex, vitamin supplement use, and beer consumption, men who smoked greater amounts of cigarettes were more likely to develop early age-related maculopathy (odds ratio (OR) per 10 pack-years smoked=1.06,95% confidence interval (Cl) 1.00-1.13, p=0.06) than men who had smoked less.

    This association was not observed in women.

    Men (OR=3.21,95% Cl 1.09-9.45) and women (OR=2.20,95% Cl 1.04-4. (...)
