Preserve Your Central Vision
& Quality of Life

Macular degeneration is a progressive eye condition that affects the macula, the central part of the retina responsible for sharp, detailed vision. 

As the leading cause of vision loss in older adults, early detection and timely intervention are crucial for preserving your central vision and maintaining your quality of life. Get help today by booking an appointment at your nearest Moses Eyecare Center.

Understanding
Macular Degeneration

Macular degeneration, also known as age-related macular degeneration (AMD), affects the macula’s ability to function properly, leading to blurred or distorted vision in your central vision. 

It can affect tasks such as reading, driving, and recognizing faces, significantly impacting your daily activities.

Types
of Macular Degeneration

There are two main types of macular degeneration: dry macular degeneration and wet macular degeneration. 

We can help detect either eye disease when you visit us for a comprehensive eye exam. If we notice an issue, we can provide you with the next steps to help preserve your vision.

Dry Macular Degeneration

Dry macular degeneration is more common and develops gradually when deposits of lipids known as drusen slowly thin the macula, causing eventual central vision problems. 

Wet macular degeneration is less common but more severe, involving the growth of abnormal blood vessels beneath the macula, which can leak fluid and cause rapid vision loss.

Comprehensive
Macular Degeneration Management

We provide comprehensive management for macular degeneration, focusing on early detection, monitoring, and treatment to help preserve your vision. Our team of eye care professionals utilizes modern diagnostic tools and techniques to assess the condition of your macula and determine the most appropriate treatment plan.

While there is no cure for macular degeneration, several treatment options can help slow its progression and manage the symptoms.

Anti-VEGF Injections

In wet macular degeneration, anti-VEGF injections can help inhibit the growth of abnormal blood vessels and reduce fluid leakage, preventing further damage to the macula.

Your eye doctor may use laser treatments such as photodynamic therapy (PDT) or focal laser photocoagulation to target and seal leaking blood vessels in the macula.

Vitamins and minerals, such as vitamin C, vitamin E, zinc, and omega-3 fatty acids, can help slow the progression of macular degeneration when taken as dietary supplements.

Our team can provide guidance on low vision aids and assistive devices that can help maximize your remaining vision and improve your quality of life.
