Macular dystrophy is an eye disease which is genetic or gene-type in nature, meaning it is inherited and past on from generation to generation. The disorder causes progressive vision loss and affects the retina, specifically cells in a small area near the center of the retina called the macula. The macula is responsible for sharp central vision, which is needed for detailed tasks such as reading, driving, and recognizing faces.

Glenn Beck is also a conservative radio and television host, political commentator, author, and entrepreneur. His authorship career include six books which had been tagged as New York Times bestsellers.
