The condition is commonly diagnosed during routine eye exams. However, if you experience a sudden change in your vision or you notice distortion of straight lines, you should notify your eye care provider. Early detection is extremely important because treatments can delay or reduce the severity of the condition. It’s a good idea to have a dilated eye exam every 1-2 years once you reach 55 years old. After 65, it’s recommended that you have a dilated eye exam every year.
While there is currently no cure for AMD, treatments are available that can prevent severe loss of vision and slow the progression of the disease considerably. At Excel Eye Center, we use specific combinations of vitamins that have been shown to dramatically slow the condition’s progress. In the case of “wet” macular degeneration, we employ medications that can stabilize and even, in some cases, improve vision.
