Protect Your Central Vision
Like many eye diseases, age-related macular degeneration (also known as AMD) usually develops without noticeable symptoms. AMD causes loss of central vision, which is the portion of your sight that allows you to study fine details, read words and numbers, and recognize faces. However, this disease may be managed effectively if detected early.
Over time, vision loss from AMD can become so severe that it creates dark spots in the middle of your vision. This vision loss is permanent, and managing the disease or mitigating its effects depends heavily on early diagnosis.
AMD does not have to mean blindness for you. By taking a proactive approach to your eye health, you can help slow AMD’s progress and prevent further damage.
