Caring For Macular Degeneration

What is Macular Degeneration?

Macular Degeneration is a disease effecting over 15 million Americans. The disease is commonly found in seniors over the age of 60.

As macular degeneration progresses it causes extreme damage to the macula of the eye causing central vision loss. Central vision loss is the clouding or darkening of the the part of your vision that recognizes faces, reads text, and watch television.

Macular degeneration does not have a cure, but there are many options such as bioptics, telescope glasses, centrasight implants, and vision aids which can dramatically improve the quality of life of those with macular degeneration.

Tools For Macular Degeneration

CentraSight Implants:

The telescope implant is intended for patients with advanced stages of macular degeneration, and the praise from our patients who received these implants is incredible.

Bioptics and Telescopes:

People with macular degeneration may be able to meet the requirements for driving using bioptic telescopes. Our patients have had tremendous success regaining their independence; driving, reading, and recognizing faces, using telescopes for macular degeneration.
