MACULAR DEGENERATION

Dr. Joseph Myers, OD FAAO

Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is a disease associated with aging that gradually reduces central vision, making reading and driving difficult. AMD affects the macula, the part of the eye that gives you 95% of your vision, including color vision. The macula is located in the center of the retina where we get our central and most important vision.  With AMD, the disruption of the macular tissues inhibits a sharp image, resulting in a painless, gradual loss of vision.

My experience during my surgery was great. Everyone made me feel comfortable and worry-free about the procedure. During the procedure, the doctor kept talking to me throughout, letting me know things were ok. I would recommend this facility.
