March is "AMD / Low Vision Awareness" Month
According to the American Academy of Ophthalmology (AAO), age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is a chronic eye disease associated with aging that gradually destroys central vision. It’s one of the leading causes of legal blindness and vision impairment in older Americans. AMD affects central vision, but not peripheral vision – therefore, it doesn’t cause total blindness. The pro¬gression of AMD can be slow or rapid, but the deterioration of central vision generally occurs over a period of a few years.
Pain is not associated with AMD, but if you experience any of the following conditions – see your ophthalmologist right away:
Although the exact cause of AMD is unknown, several studies have shown the following are more at risk:
Early detection and treatment of AMD is the best defense against losing your vision. If you are at risk for AMD, see your eye doctor for a complete eye exam at least every one to two years. If your vision has been reduced, you do not have to live a lonely and isolating life. Low vision rehabilitation resources are available to help you preserve your quality of life and maintain maximum independence. Please contact Rocky Mountain Eye Center at 1-800-934-EYES (3937) to schedule your next eye exam or for more information.
