Macular Degeneration

macular degeneration
Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is a leading cause of vision loss in people over the age of 60. AMD is a breakdown of the eye’s macula (a small part of the retina) which is the part that allows you to do very detailed tasks like read small print or sew a button back on a shirt.

There are two forms of AMD that impact nearly 2 million across America:

Dry AMD

  • Most common form categorized by retina deterioration
  • Symptoms include central vision blurriness and blind spots
  • Can turn into Wet AMD at anytime

Wet AMD

  • Categorized by abnormal blood vessel growth and leakage of fluid/blood into macula
  • Can cause objects to appear wavy or lopsided
  • Rapid progression of symptoms

While some factors like family history and genetics can’t be controlled, you can reduce your chances of developing AMD by taking preventative measures such as maintaining a healthy weight, keeping your blood pressure in check and avoiding smoking. While AMD is a slow-progressing disease, that usually doesn’t result in total vision loss, early detection is key to treat it and safeguard your vision and lifestyle for years to come.
