Macular Degeneration

macular degeneration

Macular Degeneration or age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is a medical condition which usually affects adults over 50. It causes vision loss in the center of the visual field (the macula), the part of the eye that provides sharp vision. It refers to changes in the back of the eye that can lead to central vision loss. Our optometrist can see if you have yellowish spots in the back of your eye, one of the first signs.

Schedule an appointment to check if you have AMD.
