Early diagnosis, monitoring and timely treatment the key
Have you been told that you have a disease called age-related macular degeneration, or AMD? You are not alone. Millions of people in this country have some type of AMD. In fact, it is the most common reason people over the age of 65 can lose their central vision. New studies suggest that it can happen as early as age 55. People with AMD can potentially become legally blind.
AMD is a disease of the retina. That’s the place in the back of your eye where light is changed to electrical impulses, which are then sent to your brain so you can see. The good news is that treatments are now available for many people affected by macular degeneration. Dr. Sayegh, a retina specialist, will be pleased to discuss your condition with you and offer you the appropriate treatment. This treatment is delivered right here at our clinic.
