Macular Degeneration

Age Related Macular degeneration (ARMD or AMD) is a progressive eye disease affecting the macula, the small area near the center of the retina that is crucial for sharp, central vision. 

There are two main types of AMD: 

Dry AMD, the more common form, is characterized by the gradual breakdown of light-sensitive cells in the macula, leading to a gradual loss of central vision. 

Wet AMD is less common but more severe, involving the growth of abnormal blood vessels under the retina, which can leak blood and fluid, causing rapid and severe vision loss. 

Symptoms of macular degeneration include blurred or distorted vision, difficulty reading or recognizing faces, and seeing straight lines as wavy or crooked. 

While there is currently no cure for macular degeneration, several treatments are available to help slow its progression and manage symptoms. These treatments may include vitamins, laser therapy, and in some cases, surgery or injections to control blood vessel growth, leakage, and/or inflammation. Additionally, lifestyle changes such as eating a healthy diet rich in antioxidants and leafy green vegetable, quitting smoking, and protecting the eyes from UV light can help reduce the risk of developing macular degeneration or slow its progression. 

Regular eye exams are essential for early detection and management of macular degeneration, as early intervention can help preserve vision and improve quality of life.
