Does Losartan cause macular degeneration?

My doctor prescribed Losartan a few months ago for high blood pressure, 50 mg once a day. As soon as I started taking it my vision became blurry. A week ago he doubled the dose to 100 mg once a day. My vision is even blurrier and now straight lines look wavy(I used to work for an eye doctor, I know that's a sign of macular degeneration). It's much worse if I'm tired. Is it just a coincidence or did the Lorsartan cause it? Is it really macular degeneration or just the same symptoms? Will it go away if I stop taking the drug?
