Macular Degeneration

Macular Degeneration (AMD) is a common eye disease that causes the deterioration of the macula, which, in turn, results in the development of blind spots and blurred or distorted vision.  When the macula becomes damaged, many daily activities such as driving and reading become increasingly difficult.

At present, Macular Degeneration is considered an incurable eye disease.

Macular Degeneration is caused by the deterioration of the central portion of the retina, the inside back layer of the eye that records the images we see and sends them via the optic nerve from the eye to the brain. The retina’s central portion, known as the macula, is responsible for focusing central vision in the eye, and it controls our ability to read, drive a car, recognize faces or colors, and see objects in fine detail.
