Note: For some SNPs, testing providers detect the genotype from the opposite strand of DNA, so that the genotypes listed on openSNP don't appear here. In those cases, please replace "A" by "T" or "G" by "C" (and vice-versa).

||Low clinical importance, Likely protective
||Associated with a decreased risk for age related macular degeneration (ARMD). Homozygotes for this have a 4-5% decreased attributable risk (3-4% vs. average 8% risk), heterozygotes have slightly lower than average risk (7%). Non-carriers have an increased risk (12-13%). ARMD impairs sharp vision as age progresses. While there is no cure, treatment can slow progression of the disease and environmental factors (smoking and obesity) contribute to higher risk.
