Age-related macular degeneration
We Will Diagnose & Help Manage Your Age-Related Macular Degeneration
It Isn’t Always Easy to See AMD Coming
While we recommend that everyone have an eye exam at least every two years, everyone over age 65 should have one annually. This is because many eye diseases, including age-related macular degeneration, become more prevalent the older we get.
Using Today’s Latest Technologies
Modern diagnostic technology can identify underlying factors in AMD’s development months or even years before what we could do even just a decade ago. By practicing preventative eye care, we are more likely to diagnose new eye diseases when they are young (and before they’ve caused vision loss).

It’s important to remember that there is currently no cure for AMD, though new research is being performed all the time. Every day we learn more about AMD, it’s causes, and how to protect ourselves from it.
AMD is diagnosed during a standard eye exam. Using optical coherence tomography (OCT) and retinal imaging, we are able to clearly and accurately visualize the macula and see the health of its tissues.
Once diagnosed, we help manage your AMD to delay its progression. We assess an assortment of factors, from eye health to diet, to allow you to make informed decisions about your approach to AMD.
We Are Here to Help
Macular degeneration eventually causes permanent, irreparable vision loss. In addition to managing your physical eye health as best as possible, we also offer support and guidance about how to cope with vision loss from AMD.
