Macular Degeneration

Macular degeneration is another leading cause of visual disability; fortunately, there are treatment options available. Like glaucoma, we look for macular degeneration with all of our adult patients. Depending on whether you have the “dry” or “wet” form of the disease, your doctor will recommend options for treatment and management. For those already visually disabled by the disease, our low vision clinic can help to enhance the remaining vision.
