Do You Have Macular Degeneration? Our Low Vision Doctor Can Help You Regain Visual Activity
The macula is the most sensitive part of the retina, the film in the back of the eye which turns light into vision. It is located in the center and is responsible for clear, high-definition, central vision. Macular Degeneration (AMD) is an eye condition that occurs due to damage to the macula, thus, causing partial or complete loss of central vision.
Macular Degeneration is the predominant cause of vision loss affecting over 10 million American adults age 60+. During its early stages, patients will experience decreased central vision, which will only continue to worsen over time. For now, there is no cure for AMD. Nonetheless, the condition can still be managed.
