mac-degeneration-header3Macular degeneration, a disease that affects the center of the retina called the macula, is the leading cause of blindness in adults over the age of 55. It involves a weakening of the retinal tissues that cause gradual vision loss and may develop as a result of genetics, age, diet, smoking and sun exposure.  Patients with this condition may experience distorted or blurry vision, a loss of color vision or a dark area in the center of vision. The resulting degeneration can lead to severe central (not peripheral vision) vision loss.


mac-degen-header-2There are two types of macular degeneration:  dry and wet. Although the wet variety can more commonly lead to severe visual loss, it is also the type that has more effective treatment options available. Although there is no cure for macular degeneration, early detection and treatment may slow progression of the disease.  With the latest in high-resolution digital imaging, we are able to closely follow any progressive degeneration and recommend the latest in treatment options. Regular eye exams can identify whether you are at risk of macular degeneration.
