A macular degeneration eye test can help prevent vision loss. That said, in its early stages the disease can go unnoticed. So early detection is vital to ensuring treatment success.
Age-related macular degeneration (or AMD) occurs when people loose central vision. That is the visual part that people use for things like reading and driving.
AMD usually occurs in older people, but practitioners also think genetics, smoking and diet contribute to the disease.
It’s worth noting that most people affected by macular degeneration will not go blind.
