Understanding Macular Degeneration

Macular degeneration cannot be cured, however, treatment is available to reduce its symptoms. In most cases, the disease occurs due to age, but it can also be caused by diabetes or genetics. Macular degeneration damages the macula, which affects your central vision. While macular degeneration is the leading cause of vision loss in seniors, age-related macular degeneration can be prevented with treatment.

Certain lifestyle factors like smoking, excess weight, and hypertension can also contribute to macular degeneration. Along with that, the disease can lead to a variety of symptoms, such as blurry vision, low vision, and distorted vision, why is why it is important to visit our ophthalmologist regularly.
