Macular Degeneration Treatment

About 1.75 million U.S. residents currently have advanced age-related macular degeneration with associated vision loss. Currently there are more cases of Macular Degeneration in the state of Florida than any other state in the US!

We are all at risk of developing macular degeneration as we age but there are a few factors which increase our risk:

  • Smoking
  • Hereditary
  • Gender – women more than men
  • Exposure to Sunlight
  • Obesity
  • Race – whites more than any other race
A general eye doctor or Optometrist does not have the equipment or training to detect early signs of Macular Degeneration.

Sadly there are very few symptoms of Macular Degeneration which is why regular appointments with your Ophthalmologist are necessary to prevent vision loss.

Treatment

20 years ago, patients were going blind within 2-5 years. Unfortunately there is still not cure, but the Healthy Vision Institute has been successful in creating customized treatment plans that can slow the degeneration and prevent the progression of the disease almost indefinitely.
