Macular Degeneration

Macular degeneration is caused by the deterioration of the critical central portion of the retina, the inside posterior layer of the eye that records the images we see and then sends them via the retina to the brain. The macula, helps to focus central vision, and controls our ability to read, drive a car, recognize faces or perceive colors, and see objects in fine detail.

With advancing age people’s chance of developing eye diseases can increase dramatically. The management of macular degeneration can be very complex, but it can be treated with OcuVite or ICaps vitamins, focal customized laser therapy, injectable medications, and low vision aids.
