Age-Related Macular Degeneration

Regular Eye Exams Are the Best Defence Against Age-Related Macular Degeneration

As you age, your eyes become progressively more vulnerable to eye disease. Age-related macular degeneration (or AMD) is a condition that can result in permanent vision loss and is one of the most common and serious eye diseases. When the macula becomes obscured, the light-sensitive tissue starts to decay, causing shadows or dark spots to appear in the central vision. Without treatment, AMD could result in devastating vision loss.

Vision loss caused by AMD is a growing problem in the United States. AMD is currently the leading cause of severe vision loss in adults over the age of 50. Millions of people suffer from the effects of age-related macular degeneration, and the number of Americans suffering from AMD is expected to nearly double over the next ten years.

Fortunately, with annual eye exams, AMD can be caught and treated early, preventing or delaying vision loss.

Schedule your annual eye exam today.

Understanding the Macula

The macula is a small, central portion of the retina which is responsible for central vision. Central vision allows us to see fine details such as text, numbers, and facial features. Macular cells are exceptionally light-sensitive.

AMD Symptoms

Age-related macular degeneration results in a gradual loss of central vision. Early symptoms of AMD include:

  • Fuzzy vision
  • Distorted vision
  • Shadowy or dark areas in central vision
  • Straight lines appearing crooked, blurred, or wavy

Early Detection & Prevention

Because AMD develops without obvious symptoms, regular eye exams are the only way to diagnose the disease before it causes permanent vision loss.

The exceptional diagnostic technology available at Trendy Eyes Optometry allows us to screen for AMD, detecting indicators long before you notice any changes to your vision.

Take a step towards safeguarding your vision and schedule your eye exam today.

While a balanced diet is not a substitute for regular eye exams or medical treatment, there is evidence to suggest that certain nutrients could play a part in preventing or delaying AMD. Vitamin C, zinc, vitamin E, lutein and zeaxanthin could all help slow progression of AMD.
