Did you know that Age-related Macular Degeneration is a leading cause of blindness among older Americans?
Macular Degeneration usually occurs in people over the age of 50, but can begin to develop in people as young as 40. This eye condition typically manifests with only mild symptoms, such as slight blurriness or vision distortion, and progressively gets worse. It is a very serious eye condition and a leading cause of blindness and vision impairment.
New treatments over the last 10 years have dramatically changed the course of this disease, but early detection is a critical first step. Regular eye exams can go a long way toward keeping the devastating effects of this disease at bay.
