What Is Age-Related Macular Degeneration? 

Age-related Macular Degeneration (AMD) is an age-related eye disease that affects the part of the retina responsible for central vision, the macula. It leads to a gradual loss of sharp, central vision important for activities like reading and driving, while peripheral vision remains entirely unaffected. There are two basic types of AMD, the dry form and the wet form. Dry macular degeneration is considered the less aggressive form of AMD. It typically progresses much more slowly, and level of eyesight damage is less severe. Wet macular degeneration is the more severe form of AMD that can lead to rapid reductions in central vision.

Why Is It Important To Diagnose Macular Degeneration Early? 

Preventing age-related eye disease is targeted at reducing inflammation in the body. Specifically, evidence has shown that certain nutritional supplements that include specific antioxidants for eye health can prevent progression of AMD to more advanced forms. Your doctor will discuss preventative measures with you and detect the earliest signs of macular degeneration at your routine eye exam. Early detection is crucial because although there is no cure for AMD, surgical treatments do exist to delay progression and treat the wet form if it does develop.
