Macular Degeneration is the most common cause of vision loss as we age. The conditions runs the gamut of mild findings in the eye on examination by the ophthalmologist (called drusen of the retina), to more severe changes that include new blood vessel development.
New treatments, injections into the eyeball that stall the vision changes and reverse the blood vessel growth, have been a major advance, but identifying this condition before it becomes more active is a key component.
To identify if you are developing issues with Macular Degeneration, use the famous AMSLER GRID. This simple printed graph paper will allow you to monitor your vision and to identify Macular Degeneration early or to monitor any changes in it.
