OUR TREATMENT OPTIONS

Macular Degeneration

What is Macular Degeneration?

Macular degeneration (AMD) is the leading cause of severe vision loss in seniors.

You use the center of your retina, called the macula, to focus on things, read and drive. As you get older, Macular Degeneration (AMD) can cause blurriness and visual distortion, affecting how you see words and lines. AMD can often be prevented through use of nutritional supplements.

  • A plan that works for you.

    Macular Degeneration comes in a couple forms so we will work with you to determine the best treatment options based on your consultation.

  • We make you feel at home.

    You’ll always feel like family here, and your family will always be comfortable here in our waiting room while you go through your appointments.

Treatment Options

First we’re here to listen. Then we’ll make a recommendation for treatment or provide a referral to help you manage your Macular Degeneration symptoms and determine if you have Dry or Wet AMD.

  • Dry (or atrophic) AMD

    The more common form of AMD, where the retinal tissues of the macula slowly become thin and lead to very gradual vision loss. We work with you to evaluate and monitor progression.

  • Wet (or exudative) AMD

    The more severe form of AMD, where new, fragile blood vessels form underneath the retina, dramatically blur central vision and potentially cause more severe vision loss. For patients experiencing Wet Macular Degeneration, we’ll refer you to a specialist for injections or laser treatments.
